The Pipe stands strong



We went to the public hearing for the new Saputo stadium and got confirmation that the pipe will not be and was never to be destroyed. At this event we also met the RIO representative and will soon set a meeting to see what will be required to have RIO support for the pipe. It's definitly looking good. Cheers to everyone who believed in us and supported the pipe.

Ca regarde bien et nous avons eu de bonnes nouvelles. La première étant que le Pipe ne sera pas détruit. Saputo nous a assuré qu'il n'est et n'a pas été question de démolir le Big-O. Nous avons aussi établi un contact avec la RIO et devrions les rencontrer d'ici peu pour établir le futur du Pipe et établir un plan. Merci à tous.

Keep signing the guestbook!!

One of the few places I skated in the early 8o's that is still around. Lots of history and way to important to loose especially as skating is only now gaining acceptence. Keep up the great work!

One of the few places I skated in the early 80's that is still shredded today. To have had it torn down would have been the biggest mistake, lots of history and way to important to lose, especially as skating is only now gaining acceptance and how municipalities are now investing in building parks. Keep up the great work!
