The following is a joint press release from NW Scoot and ScooterDad regarding the 2011 NW Scoot Christmas Classic:
We must regrettably announce that we have been forced to cancel the NW Scoot Christmas Classic originally scheduled for Saturday, December 17th, 2011 at Skate Barn in Renton, WA.
Rumors have been swirling about the possibility of Skate Barn closing due to complications surrounding the lease of the building between the new buyer and the landlord. While we were hearing the rumors as well, we also kept hearing from the current owners of Skate Barn that arrangements had been made to ensure that the Christmas Classic would be good to go with the new owner. We chose not to further spread uncertain rumors by making any announcements since we were being told that our event date was secure.
