This semester we started a new community service project... Actually, with the leadership of the Club's new president, we've started quite a few new projects serving the greater Raleigh community. This is one that looks promising. We will be taking a handful of club members to the Boy's and Girl's Club of America in Raleigh once a month to teach skateboarding. Here are some clippits from our first visit to the center...
We were welcomed with open arms and excitement, as we each received a special nickname from the kids within minutes. "Can someone please explain why I am 'One-direction' ?"
Here's a few quick highlights from the Game of S.T.A.T.E. competition that when down on 2/17/2013, following the beloved traditions of the club. Despite being rained out on the 16th, we had a successful event for all of the local skate-patrons the next day. In case you missed it, this is a quick peep of what went down... oh, and we did get some rain during the event, but the storm only came to drop shoes, shirts, wheels, hoodies, and a massive precipitation of stickers... so, no one was complaining.

NC Skate's first edition to the 'Brick Magic Archives' will be coming next month. This is a little taste of what is to come. Features NC Skate homies, Raleigh locals, and footage from trips to Phili, D.C., Charlotte, and NJ. Prepare yourself, ya turkey.

The club just got in our new tees and they are for sale tho the public for $15 a piece. The shirts were made with a focus on comfort first, style second. They are a navy blue tag-less tee, with a front left chest pocket and the classic 'NC Skate' lettering embroidered on the pocket. The back is the large logo shown above, drawn by Alex Isenburger and rendered by Rob Russell.
To get your own limited edition tee email firstname.lastname@example.org with the size and quantity of shirts. The price is set a $15 ea. no exceptions, delivery included.
Technically, the back should read '(G)narwhal served daily!', but this is obviously a new breed of gnarly mammals that we are harboring here, so grab a beer and kick it with a hearty serving of Gnarwhale.

This is a sick magazine for the homies, by the homies out of the Philly area. Pages 23-25 consist of NC Skate- Campus Orientation article, but I would recommend checking out the whole mag. It's a good one.
