Lonestar Skate 2020
POSTED 4.4.20


We have evaluated the current state of affairs regarding Covid-19 and it’s impact on society and disruption of events.  It’s apparent to the coordinators of the Lone Star Skate Jam that the uncertainty of the current environment and our concerns for the health and wellness of our love of our skate family, that it’s in the best interest to reschedule the 2020 Lone Star Skate Jam event.  Regrettably, while we recognize that an amazing weekend of skate fun and fellowship was in the mix, we felt it best to postpone our event until June of 2021.

We appreciate your intent to support our event and your understanding.

We will immediately begin to work on plans and for next years event. Until this Corona virus has tempered, we’ll see you next on the skate floor. In the meantime, please continue to keep yourself and your love ones safe.

Many Blessings,
Megan Manuel
