Full write up out shortly, but here's a short brief ditto of the days happenings:

Girls from Czech, Poland, New Zealand, France, Ireland, Spain and the UK travelled to the Pioneer Skate park in St Albans on June 20th for the 8th annual Girl Skate Jam. More than 40 riders turned up to skate the comp and catch up with friends. Hats have to go off to the 6 girls who came over from Spain and camped in the green next to Pioneer for two nights and nearly got abducted by a taxi driver!! It was good to see new faces coming through on the UK scene especially with ramp ripper Charlotte Thatcher, a Romford local.

Thanks to all the sponsors: Nikita, Les Ettes, Vans, Eastpak, Death, LoveNskate, Pro Tech and Rogue for all their help.

Also thanks to LoveNskate's Alex Barton, Les Ettes' Carmela Fleury and last minute stand in Rubicon Geoff for offering their judging skills, MC Joff, DJ's Ian and John, filmers Leigh Burton, James Strutt and Michael McInally and all the other Pioneer volunteers - Heidi Blum, Chloe Bennett, Lloyd, Jake Williams, Leah Smithson, Matt Talbot, and Di Headley, who really made the day!!
