Thomson Park Bowl Jam 2021

29th October 2021
There were many uncertainties going into the Thomson Park Bowl Jam this year.  For the two weeks building up to it, we were watching the 1pm updates to see if we were going to get a covid case in Christchurch that would put us into lockdown,  if the lockdowns would be lifted up North to allow our Auckland skaters to make it, and even if we would have to shut down the competition on the day if more than 100 people showed up to watch and we couldn't manage the crowd.

We are so thankful that it went off without a hitch, and we have to show our appreciation to the New Brighton community who heeded our call not to come down and watch, but stay at home and wait for the video replay.  Without their cooperation, we could not have pulled this off under Level 2 restrictions.  And much love to our friends in Australia and Auckland who weren't allowed to travel, you were missed.
Congratulations to all the people who skated on the day, here are the results from the finals:
