Well, this is it. The end of road. At least for now. The Arkansas Crown Championship series has officially come to a close with the completion of the Championship Finals. Shenanigans kicked off on Oct 19th at Boardertown Skateshop in Ft Smith. We had a DJ spinning some dope tracks, Jason on Hot Dog duty, and plenty of people shredding and spectating.

People were dropping hammers everywhere, all day long. You'll see the evidence in this article. The NWA Skateboarding Foundation kicked off festivities with a Begintermediate Jam. Winners of the Begintermediate segment were:

3rd Place - Josh

2nd Place - Christian

Crown Finals was nuts. The homies came out and threw down, and everyone had a great time. You could tell everyone was there to just have fun and get as gnar as they possibly could. Feast your eyes on the photographic evidence. There's some pics in there from before, during and after. Enjoy them. When all was said and done, the finals ended with:
