            July 22nd2009 eS footwear came to Austintown/Youngstown, OH on their national leg of the eS Game of Skate tour. The eS Game of Skate was originally created in 2003 and has since expanded. This is the fourth year in a row that the tour has had an official event in Ohio. The years and places are as follows:

2006-Cleveland, OH/Westside Skate Shop.
2007-Kettering, OH/DC Skate Plaza.
2008-Austintown,OH/Stomping Grounds Skate Park.
2009-Austintown,OH/Stomping Grounds Skate Park

            A game of S.K.A.T.E. is similar to the game of H.O.R.S.E. in basketball, someone makes a shot(or trick), the other person has to do it and if they miss, they get a letter. For those of you already familiar with the game here are some rules that may differ from your own or are contrary to your belief:

No landing tricks one-footed or cross-legged(the guy in charge said it just looks bad).
A trick must be popped(which means no sliding your big spins and no pivots on the cabs).
A shifty is an ollie, doing a shifty with a flip gets you nowhere, your opponent only has to do what you did minus the shifty.
Lastly, in contradiction to the berrics, you do not get two tries on the last letter.
This last rule is most likely the reason why the matches went so quickly.

That is the background information, now to the day…
