2007 - Factory Skatepark Road Trip
On February 3,2007, Barry Gilliland, Geoff Seagars and Chris Solomon left Birmingham at 9am to make the 3 hour road trip to Newnan, Georgia (south of Atlanta) to skate at the Factory skate park. This is a HUGE skate park all housed inside a even larger industrial warehouse. The park has everything (big street course, 3ft micro-mini ramp, 6ft mini-ramp, 13ft vert ramp, 4ft boomerang fun bowl, and more!) for every body (skaters, of course, but also inliners, scooters and the dreaded bike riders). Barry, Geoff and Chris spent the day skating everything the skate park had to offer...spending most time in the fun bowl. Many others "planned" to go, but things came up and plans changed. They missed a helluva fun road trip! Many more trips to the Factory will be made!
