HEMET, CA - State2State appreciates all your continued support and patronage over the years in supporting our Kid’s Take over Skate Party and State2State Sk8-off Skate Party. Due to the COVID-19 and its current strict guidelines. We’ve decided to postpone State2State Friday September 11th 2020 and Wine Tasting September 12th 2020.

25th Annual Joi's Sk8-A-Thon Update!
POSTED 7.2.20


ATLANTA, GA - I'd like to first Thank You ALL for your patience. These last couple months has been very STRESSFUL for me, trying to decide whether or not Sk8athon 2020 would be practical. 
Due to Major factors beyond our control it is impossible to plan this event and give you the Experience you look forward to and Deserve every year. There are too many variables and challenges that we predict could change Sk8athon with only a moment’s notice, that could change the entire event. 

I have consulted with my team, a couple DJs, rink owners, non-skaters, promoters and of course God, with whom I felt would advise me wisely. SAFETY has always been the first priority for Sk8athon and we all feel due to COVID-19, your SAFETY will be COMPOMISED and we're NOT willing to put so many skaters (and others) LIVES at RISK!!!

We know so many people look forward to and have/is making plans to attend Sk8athon 2020 and we apologize for any inconvenience.  

I will contact all Vendors, Sponsors and VIP Pass Holders next week. As of 7/1/20, Sk8athon has been cancelled until 2021. 

Hotel update
... The Westin Hotel will cancel ALL RESERVATIONS but I advise if you don’t receive an email confirmation about cancellation within a week please call them! Thanks

Love Is (Still) The Message. Stay Safe.

GreatSkateShow - Canceled until 2021
POSTED 5.14.20


CLEVELAND, OH - The Rollinbuckeyez would like to thank each and every one of you for your unconditional support over the years. We have continued to do our best at hosting events that bring the community together. Well the current COVD19 epidemic doesn't help our cause at all.

Although there are signs that things are going in the right direction. At what point are we willing to take risk I'm personally on the fence and feel as though I don't want to panic and hold out with canceling of events.

For a long time we will all be put in a situation where we want to get back to normal. At what point are we going to feel safe around 25, 50, let alone 100 people or more at cookouts, on boat rides and at skate parties?

With that being said, it saddens me to have to CANCEL this year's GREATESTSKATESHOW. There are just too many uncertainties that lie between now and August. 
Although things won't be as we are used to for some time, hopefully this time next year there will be some reminiscing. Some will understand and some will not. I will remain diligent with my decision because I care about the well-being of my family as well as yours.
You have supported us for over 10 years now. Watch us continue to grow. We will remain active in the community and plan on a much higher level as we move forward.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Humbly submitted, 
Kenneth Perdue
