“Active” Ride Shop Visits Santiago
by Aren Chaturanyakoon, Entertainment Editor
Thursday, May 3, 2012 the Active Army Team set up an active tent at the quad of Santiago’s campus during first and second lunch to promote the opening of their new board shop at the Corona Crossings. The team handed out discount coupons and applied temporary tattoos to students around their tent.
“Were also here to promote and perpetuate skateboarding,” said Corey Cady, member of the Active team, “We just hung out and had a chill time, that’s what were all about.”
There was an appropriately mellow atmosphere as the team chatted to students and performed tricks off of the main stairs at the quad. A physical endurance competition was held where students had hold squats and pushups until only one was left. The winner received a new skateboard deck and the runner-up got a free t-shirt.
“These guys are really chill,” says sophomore and avid skater Brian Vu, “they really made it a good lunch.”
