Hello British fingerboarders,
By extreme luck, I found @ElliottBlock on the Fingerboard Discord who then told me about this UK event. Whaaat? UK fingerboarding has felt dead for years, but apparently there was a previous event a year ago.
Anyhow, the full announcement is on this video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hEkhgRV4dE
(You can skip to near the end if you just want to see the details)
This is an old meme but yes, this event is actually in central England (unlike what Kerry would tell you about Bristol).
I personally don’t know the organiser, but judging by the page, she is a decent fingerboarder and organises the Texas Rendezvous. The previous event video seems legit. I’ve also asked if there are/were older people going and she replied yes.
I’ll be going. Anyone else fancy it?
As a heads up for the organiser, you can fill in an online survey, linked in the YouTube description, so that they can prepare for certain numbers.
(I live in Beijing right now, but I’ll be over in the UK this summer)
