It was a killer event and great conversation took place but in listening in you really began to see how much work is left for us to do. We will be hitting you up w/ some notes and a follow up detailing the discussion, Q&A, and upcoming opportunities to get involved! Until then, here are a couple photos from the Panel Discussion.. for the full album check us out on Flickr!
Saturday October 24, 1982 TGR landed in Seattle with their crew and the “Re:sessions” tour. Easily one of the most anticipated films this fall, and it was obvious when we sold out of tickets early the week before the show!
People started arriving as early as 630p to try and purchase last minute tickets at the door and the line was wrapped around the corner over an hour before doors opened.

Last Wednesday evening, evo and group Y hosted a gathering and discussion focused on sustainability and what it means to all of us in the realm of action sports. We had an expert line up of speakers; pro-snowboarder and co-mastermind of Holden outerwear Mikey LeBlanc, former CEO of REI Dennis Madsen, and Stevens Pass Marketing Director Chris Rudolph.
These guys kicked down some serious knowledge and insight and the audience asked some great questions. However, we know that not everyone got the chance to be heard, whether they were in the audience at evo or out there on the interwebs.
So… we’d love to not only continue the conversation and give you a chance to chime in, but also reward one lucky question asker as well!
We’ll be taking questions from you via email and twitter, and kicking back out the answers from Mikey, Dennis and Chris late next week. We’ll award the most creative/inspiring/thought-provoking question with a very cool limited edition skate deck, courtesy of our friends and group Y event sponsors FUEL TV.
So, fire off your questions to us via email, or via twitter to @groupY.
We’ll post the questions and answers on the blog next week and announce the winner!
