The Pros Showed Up Big at “Rock the Cradle for Johnny Romano”

We were a proud sponsor this weekend at “Rock the Cradle for Johnny Romano”.  Pros such as Rune Glifberg, Dave Duncan, and Lance Childers showed up big at Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark this weekend.  We hope everyone had a good time, and that the event offered the Romano family both financial and moral support.

We snapped some great photos of the event, which you can find in our Flickr account.  We also set up a Flickr Group, which pools together all the photos from the event.  If you took pictures, feel free to upload them here so you can share with your friends who couldn’t make it out.  All of our photos are protected by the Creative Commons license, which allows you to use them in any way as long as you attribute them back to Sun & Ski Sports.

We also created a sweet music video in honor of the event.  You can find that here.

Many thanks to all who showed, volunteered, or skated at Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark this weekend.
