Ten years after the tragic loss of a great friend to many and highly respected skateboarder, Sessions is holding the 11th Annual Tim Brauch Memorial Contest. Sessions team rider, Tim, was always true to his roots as a skateboarder and possessed a positive attitude that did nothing less than inspire friends, family, and the community around him. Tim’s untimely passing in 1999 at the age of 25 (read more about him on www.timbrauch.com), led Sessions to create the Tim Brauch Memorial Fund, which donates 100% of the funds towards skateboard park development and scholarships.
One donation made from the Tim Brauch Memorial Fund went to create the Tim Brauch Memorial Skate Park in Scotts Valley, CA, which continues to host the street portion of the contest. The street contest will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2009. Am riders from all over the West Coast will come to show their support of Tim and compete for top place.
The 11th Annual Bowl Contest hosted by the World Cup of Skateboarding will be held at the year old Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park in San Jose, CA on Sunday, September 27, 2009. The Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park opened early in 2008 as the largest skate park in California at 68,000 square feet. The park also features the world’s longest full pipe, tallest vert wall, and largest cradle. This year they will have local artists display their work at the contest with live art shows and will be having several bands play throughout the day. In addition, 2 daily raffles will take place giving away great products from our participating sponsors. Food and drinks will also be sold to competitors and observers.
