Title: marginal way got robbed.
Post by: bailgun on January 03, 2012, 03:29:55 PM
In case you didn't know, someone broke into the shed and stole the generator and some tools from Marginal Way. They better hope we don't find out who they are. If everything happens to be returned in full working order our investigation will cease. Otherwise the deadly karma of skateboarding is coming your way asshole. In the meantime...

no generator means no work can be done on the park, as well as an end to friday night lights.

a new generator is gonna run about $1200. the rest of the stuff stolen totals around $1000.

and if the thief happens to be reading this, bring the generator and the rest of the tools back, and all will be forgiven. this is your one and only chance.

you can find our paypal button at the top of our website, www.marginalwayskatepark.org (http://www.marginalwayskatepark.org)

thanks for reading, and please help us spread the word on this. we're dead in the water without a generator.

sorry to hear about that, hope you find who it is. i think charging them would be better than assaulting them....but it's your choice beating the shit out of them would be alright too ha

i'm hardly "the law."... i'm just one of the many folks that work and skate marginal. but rest assured, i will be among the first to administer justice if the thief is found.

to get one of the shirts, hit up the paypal, send us $20, and include a note with what size you want and your shipping address... we've had some hassles with production and shipping in the past, but we recently had a new batch printed up, so they'll be shipped quickly.

Just placed a donation for a shirt and koozie.

Hit the button twice, so I guess I'm getting me a $50 shirt & koozie.  Hope I get it this time.

Has anyone ever received a shirt from this?  I've donated plenty to Marginal over the years and have yet to get jack shit.

i refunded your money. it's become too much of a hassle coordinating shipping on these. one guy has the shirts and the bank card, so i'm completely at his mercy if i need to ship shirts, and he refuses to return texts or calls, so i'm over it.
 no more mail order shirts.

Cool, thanks.  I would recommend having a Buy button on the website for shirts if the guy ever gets his shit together.  That way people can get their own refund if he lags, and hopefully one day I can buy a shirt!

Is the same guy the one who takes actual donations and buys shit for the park?  If so, fuck it.  If not, I'm still down to donate if I was sure the money actually went to good use.

Thanks again for looking out.

the paypal ties directly to marginal's bank account. before money can be spent, the inner circle must agree. so any dough you send to the paypal will go to the construction of the park. nobody involved in marginal way gets anything from the park, except the park itself....

once again, i'm sorry your order fell through the cracks, and thanks for being patient. this has been a bit of a hassle, with lots of people waiting on shirts and complaning to me on both marginal's and my personal facebook, making accusations of fraud, etc.....
