This Wednesday night the Mammoth Lakes Town Council is having a closed session, which means the public is not allowed in. One of the topics up for discussion is a skateboard ban. Mammoth Lakes, California is a tourist town. Let them know that you will not visit Mammoth ever again if they ban skateboarding. They make their money from tourists who go skiing and snowboarding. Let them know that you will boycott Mammoth Mountain and never buy another lift ticket if they do ban skateboarding. You can find the story here http://www.sierrawave.net/8572/mltc-mlla-closed-session-trails-system-skateboards/ This is a local news site and members of the town council read the comments left here.
Please try to leave mature comments so your comment will get approved on the website and the Town Council will be able to read it. If you just leave comments like F%$@ Mammoth, your comment won't get approved and they will never see it. Please help your brothers and let Mammoth know that they will lose your tourist $$$$ if they ban skateboarding.
Thank You

I don't know how many people from her got involved, but it worked. The Mammoth Town Council has no intentions of any skateboard prohibition or new regulations. Nine skateboarders showed up and spoke out at the Town Council meeting that night, including Wave Rave owner Steve Klassen. It turns out, it was the Mammoth Lakes Chief of Police who started the whole ban skateboard idea. Big shocker that it was a cop eh? Several members of the MLTC (Mammoth Lakes Town Council) stood up for skateboarders. One said "It's a way of life for some and we have no intention of taking that away." Another said he could see the freedom in skateboarding. So this is one battle we have won for now. You can find the complete story and the comments that are still being made here http://www.sierrawave.net/8651/no-prohibitions-skateboarders/
