The contest, sponsored by The Village of Croton-on-Hudson Department of Recreation and 2nd Nature Skateboard Shop of Sleepy Hollow, was attended by around 45 competitors and an estimated 75 spectators. According to Department of Recreation staff members, the event generated in excess of $300.00 in entrance fees.

Saturday's contest and skateboard demonstration was the first of its kind for the skatepark. Croton riders included Kyra, Max, Lou, David, Lucas, Ross, John, & Matt.

Additionally, there were five other winners from the 14 & under and 15 and & up age divisions, who walked away with a range of awesome prizes, valued at over $800.00, that included skatebord decks, wheels, bearings, t-shirts and skateboard sneakers all generously provided by Doug and his crew from the 2nd Nature Skateboard Shop.
