On Friday October 26th the Forum team flew into Southern California for an autograph session at Hot Skates in Orange. The line was stacked, wrapping around the store for three solid hours, with kids waiting to get the chance to meet the team and get autographs, posters, and the chance to win one of five free snowboards that were given out in a raffle.
To add to the excitement and to give the large crowd a little more entertainment, Base 9 Records set up their DJ booth in the store and spun hip hop while the kids chilled with the team.
But that wasn’t all. On Saturday, October 27th, the Forum crew mounted up early in the morning in a black stretched limousine and did a three-stop autograph session at Active shops in Southern California. They started with the Active Temecula store, then hit the Rancho store and finished at the Irvine spot.
All three stops had the same thing in common, as the limo pulled up to the front of the stores there were kids out in front and inside the stores eagerly waiting to meet and greet there favorite Forum pro. The team roamed around the stores for a while, chillin’ with the kids before sitting down for the Autograph sessions.
It was pretty rad to see how stoked the kids got when guys like JP Walker,Devun Walsh and Peter Line would walk up to them and say hi. At each stop five snowboards and box’s of free T-shirts, sweatshirts, and posters were given out.
