Camtest/Tuckfest Returns and Ignites the Pink Motel Pool

YouTube Preview ImageIn the only bowl event on the planet to divide the competition into weight classes, the 6th Annual Camtest/Tuckfest returned to the Pink Motel pool on Saturday afternoon for a great time to celebrate skateboarding and the life of our fallen friend of Dave Tuck. The afternoon raged on under the burning sun of the San Fernando Valley and as the sun began to set a total of $3000 was raised to benefit two important cancer charities — Grind for Life and Strap in For Life!

Thanks to all that showed and poured in on with blood, sweat and beers and to the great group of bands and supporting sponsors. In the name of Dave Tuck, it was a blast and he wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
