HERE IS THE REPLY WE GOT WHEN WE APPLIED TO HAVE THE COMP IN COCHRANE AGAIN THIS YEAR:
"Thank you for your interest in our Skateboard Park, it is a feather in our cap when outside organizations show interest in booking our facilities.
However I regret to inform you that we are not able to approve your permit application for the requested event on June 23rd.
Much like our outdoor ice skating surfaces The Zero Gravity Park in Cochrane is a popular, public space and is not available to be booked out on an exclusive basis. Our intention for such spaces is to allow inclusive, no charge use for all members of the public during operational hours. Unfortunately the nature of your request doesn’t line up with these values. "
HERE IS A SAMPLE EMAIL YOU CAN SEND TO THE MAYOR AND TOWN COUNCIL:

Hello my name is ___ I am ___ years old and live in _______
I am contacting you regarding the Scooter Competition at the Cochrane Skatepark. The company that put it on last year has been denied permission to hold the same competition this year.
I am really disappointed we won’t be holding the competition in Cochrane – the park is ideal for doing tricks and for my family to come and view.
Last year there where at least 20 local Cochrane riders in the comp, and it brought riders and their families from all over Alberta and even BC! Everyone had a great time and we all looked forward to this year.
Please help us to put on this great community event (which costs the Town nothing and brings visitors who may not have come without the competition being in Cochrane)
