SPoT Employee of the Month Party - February 2016

Posted on Monday, March 21, 2016 by Chris

For the February employee of the month celebration, we invited everyone who was a part of our Tampa Pro staff to the park and made them the recipients of the award since they all killed it so hard. We fired up the grill for some tasty grub, put some beers on ice, and let the good times roll. Oh yeah, we can’t forget how Coppertail Brewing Co., a local Tampa Bay brewer, came through with a free keg of their finest beer. Does it get any better than a free keg of beer? We don’t think so. A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the 22nd Annual Tampa Pro contest, we couldn’t have done it without you! Until next time.

Reviewing the clip. Did Frank blow it? Probably not.
Maintenance alumni Aaron Burkett and a Tampa Pro temp staff member hanging out with some drinks. Look at that mullet-tail!
Aaron’s dog also came to hang out. We may have given him a burger or two.
Unfortunately Chase had to work the shop during our party, but he was stoked to run outside and grab some grub. Pure happiness people.
Manny Amoreli Sr. with a proper rock’n’roll on the outside quarter. Thanks for all your help during the Converse Conrete Jam, Manny!
I should have gotten this kid's name because he was ripping. Step off jammer on the outside quarter.
The drinks and good times were flowing. Thanks again Coppertail!
The two Brians. We all know our fearless leader Brian Schaefer, but Bryan Adams is always a huge help and always down to lend a hand no matter what the task. Thanks for always having our back, Brian!
Who dat? Our local squad of rippers.
This new wallride obstacle is a product of the Converse concrete rebuild. Luckily it’s now one of the funnest things to skate here at the park. Derick Wynn puts in a tall order with this wallride.
“How’s it look Frank!?”
Tristan Mershon goofing around with his new favorite trick, the dump truck.
Chris Reitz with a back tail over the love seat. Style matters people.
SPoT team rider Alejandro Burnell is really good. I mean really really good. Frontside 5-0.
The man behind the lens. Frank thinks I’m weird for taking photos of him.
