The Wednesday Comp son!!

The first Wednesday night comp started with a bang! Well a lot of bangs actually – it happened yards from Aberdeen’s biggest fireworks display in years. Some of us even got to see them going snap, crackle and pop. As for the comp we had some true bangers, some crazy pop and some screaming Scotsmen (if that isn’t a name for a firework - it should be). It took most of the night but we got there in the end. Tea mugs were tagged up in the traditional Wednesday cup livery by our very own president elect Barrack O’bam’r. And they looked the dogs’.
One went to Flying Ryan Gibson (AKA Sheckler) for winning the under sixteens. The other went to Dan G for winning a very hard fought battle with transition staff tech dog Pete C and all round ruler Callum ‘the first black president’ Barrack.
Notable moments came from both groups. Wee Lee Ross and Neil 2.0 comping each other on every trick and ending up with the same score, best of all was Mark his last name is Paterson, laying down the hardest trick of the day: a switch mayday. Then to his horror four people got it! Some of whom have never even tried it before. See you here next week for more cups, prizes and banter.

Wednesday Comp

The History of the Wednesday Cup goes way back to the Stoneywood skate park days. It was a competition born out of boredom and purely done for fun, kudos and the worst looking ‘trophy’ on earth. It cost twenty pence to enter, and if you won you got to take home the prize fund, a mars bar or Snicker’s and of course, the coveted Wednesday Cup. Four or five people usually entered, so about one whole pound was up for grabs. But you could say with pride, you’d won the Wednesday Cup. And you had it there in your hand as poof - a dirty plastic pint glass covered in duct tape and stickers with the words Wednesday Cup Winner scribed into it with biro. The Wednesday Cup!

Transition skate parks version of The Wednesday Cup is five separate games of SKATE held on five different obstacles in the skate park, the five obstacles will be chosen at random from the fallowing options, so it will never be the same five two weeks in a row.

- Flat ground
- Micro ramp
- Grind box
- Small hip
- Small driveway
- Whippy quarter
- Flat bank
- Wild cards (6ft mini, round rail and big hip)


- Everyone must pay one pound into the prize fund for their age group
- The youngest person in each group always sets the first trick
- Only one trick per turn.
- Only one try per letter
- No two try’s on last trick.
- No heckling, no gloating, no casper’s and strictly no pressure flips!

Every Wednesday at 7o’clock any skateboarder who wants to compete in the Wednesday Cup can do so by paying one pound into the prize fund (but must of course have paid to enter for that session). The competitors can be any age, and they’ll compete in two different age groups; under 16’s and over 16’s. All riders must compete on every obstacle and each game will fallow the same standard game of SKATE rules

The scoring of each competition is the key to the Wednesday Cup, without it the over-all positions would become impossible to tell. Only first and second places will get points! One point for first place and half a point for second (so even if two or more people go out on the last trick, they’ll all get the same – a half point). Then after all events have run there course. The person who wins the most points over all five sections will obviously win their age groups Wednesday Cup and all the money in the prize fund. But all points will be added up, to work out who comes in 2nd and 3rd place in both age groups and there will be some prizes for them too, given to us by our sponsors. Thanks to Power Dist, Revival, Carhartt, Relentless and Boarderline.
