I have a way that everyone could help support ASRA.
Everyone can send a letter to your federal MP, this week.
The simple message that you want to deliver something like this:
"A group of people dedicated to promotion of safety and excellence in the sport of skateboarding have secured the 2009 world championship in the sport of downhill skateboarding, to be held at Bathurst on the last weekend in November.
This group has no government support, nor does it have any support from Skate Australia
Young Australians are at the forefront of this sport, competing internationally, developing global friendships, and conducting themselves as sporting ambassadors that this nation can be proud of .
All that we ask is that you kindly mention this to the Minister of Sport, and if at all possible, we would really appreciate a mention in the house, within the next 4 weeks."
Include details of the event, and who you are etc.
If you like this post.......send a letter!
If enough MP's get a letter all at the same time, then something might get through.
