It looks like Daniel Dhers is closing the doors of the Animal House indoor skatepark in Greenville, North Carolia and is throwing down one last jam, the Goodbye Jam. Also, the news dropped that he will be opening a new Action Sports Complex outside of Releigh, Nort Carolina, that will be open to the public.
“The weekend of October 26th and 27th, 2013 I will be hosting a Goodbye Jam at the Animal House in Greenville, NC as I prepare for the next chapter of my life and the opening of my first ever Action Sports Complex in Holly Springs, NC. This pro/am contest will celebrate the ending of an era, in one of the greatest facilities that has ever existed in BMX, and the beginning of a new one.
This Goodbye Jam will be the last opportunity for all riders, pro or am, to enjoy the infamous Animal House in Greenville, NC. We will begin breaking down the ramps shortly after the contest. I will also host a much needed riders meeting, for all pros, to propose and discuss some ideas to help improve our current judging and scoring system, as well as, our contest format which has been so controversial in the past. Ultimately, we will present our ideas to the sports organizers for contests worldwide to help improve our sport and have a more refined judging/scoring system that will allow BMX to grow exponentially.
January 2014, the first ever Daniel Dhers Action Sports Complex will be opening in Holly Springs, NC. This complex will be a family oriented facility where riders of all ages and skill levels can enhance their abilities in unity under the care and supervision of a knowledgeable staff. The park, designed and built by Nate Wessel, will be a 37,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor riding facility for BMX, Mountain Biking and Skateboarding with 20,000 sq. ft. inside and 17,000 sq. ft. outside.
Please stay tuned for more information regarding the contest, riders meeting, tentative schedule, and hotel accommodations. For any other questions or concerns, please contact me via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/DanielDhersOfficialPage“
