Help the Community and get a $20 gift card

A good friend of mine is working for the I.U. school of medicine doing a study to see where education about sexually transmitted infections is needed the most.  The study is aimed at men from ages 17-24.  Rhett Skateboarding will be helping in the study by providing a venue for the testing to take place.  For one to be involved in the study they must be a male, age 17-24.  In order for participating in the study one will receive a $20 gift card to Rhett Skateboarding.  To participate in the study, you will have to take a s.t.i. test involving urinating in a cup, and filling out a short form.
This is a great way to get involved in helping out the Bloomington community and helping to raise awareness of sexually transmitted infections/diseases.  If anyone is interested you can call here at the shop for more details (812)336-9321.
Testing will happen on Saturday Sept. 24 from 1-5 here at the skateshop.  If you would like to schedule an appointment on another date you can call 812-266-1978 for more details.
Thanks for the Support!

THANKS

Rhett Skateboarding had a great first weekend.  The first Thursday sesh at the park was super fun. Its really exciting to see everyone come out and support the scene.  Friday was Rhett's first day of business, and so many people came out to say hey or get some stuff..it was so good!
I basically just want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone in Bloomington, and beyond, who has helped me in any way or come out to support Bloomington skateboarding.  I seriously couldn't have done any of this with out your help!
I want to especially thank Ryan Smith, Buddy Best, and Joe Hughes.  Their support and friendship has really gotten the shop to where it is now.  THANK YOU!
If you are in Indy and need skateboard stuff check out Rise, if you are in Lawrenceberg, check out Blacklist.
Thanks again to everyone who skateboards.  We will be getting more product in every week leading up to our Grand Opening on May 30th, so make sure to stop by to see whats coming in!
