The Analog Game of S-K-A-T-E was held at the Dunedin Town Skatepark on Wednesday 14th of April 2010.
The competitors were competing for this prize; a solid gold polycarbonate trophy and being able to call themselves Dunedin S-K-A-T-E Champion for 2010.
These two gentlemen were running the game; James from Analog and Craig from Quest Dunedin.
A quick guide to the rules of the game; “No fighting or eye-gouging”.
The crowd waits in anticipation at this historic event.
Rock, paper, scissors.
Some words from Craig on the megaphone about hair pulling and shoulder barging.
The excited crowd looks on expectantly.
Harris is pulling out all the stops.
Possibly the deciding match. The first round match between two competition favourites; Dolph and Lowrey. Bad luck if you were one of the other two in the match.
Lots of heavy phone action from Leon to S-K-A-T-E HQ concerning the worlds hardest skateboarding trick and does it conform to Berrics rules.
That cleared up; more paper, rock, scissors. Sometimes this decides who wins the game.
More crowd action.
More rock, paper, scissors.
Pointing out who’s who, and whose tricks don’t pop.
Rock, paper, scissors for the semi-final as the light fades.
Second place getter Michael Robertson inspecting the solid gold polycarbonate prize.
And the winner Sam Lowrey; “proud moment.”
To the victor go the spoils.
Another fun day brought to you by James from Analog and Craig from Quest. Thanks guys. Now back to training for next years match up. Anyone want a game?

Bowl-a-Rama is coming to Waitangi Skatepark, Wellington. Friday 12th February 2010 at 5pm for the heats and Saturday 13th February 2010 at 5:30pm for the finals.
I notice there’s mention of Flat-a-rama at Bondi. “…for the uninitiated; you may initially see just another game of S-K-A-T-E but once you settle in you will realise this is more about the fun involved with having a skate with your friends than the limits of a trick comp.”
Had a look for Flat-o-rama on the web but just got a bunch of car racing crap and shifting flat stuff, mind you when I type bowl-o-rama in I get ten pin bowling so guess I’ll have to wait for it to appear on the web before I can tell what makes their game of S-K-A-T-E so different from others.
