Launch will be open today (1/5) from 3-8pm. As many of you know, we are in the middle of a big layout change here at the Center. Our new entrance is now to the right of our garage door and the skatepark is getting a facelift too. Please bear with us while we work hard to get the new layout finished. Thanks everyone!

Vote for Launch!!

Earlier this year, Launch was featured in the “Causes” section of the Coloradoan newspaper. Causes is a feature that highlights the work non-profits and volunteers are doing to help make the Northern Colorado community a better place.The newspaper has decided to further celebrate non-profits in northern Colorado with an event called “The Giving Campaign”.

From now through Nov. 15, please visit and vote for your top three favorite Causes that have been featured in the section this year. YOU CAN VOTE AS OFTEN AS YOU’D LIKE before the polls close (and you can place all 3 of your votes for Launch).The top three Causes, as determined by reader votes, will be beneficiaries of a Coloradoan donation drive. Please help Launch make it into the top 3! Feel free to share this link with your friends and anyone that supports Launch and our efforts to promote skateboarding as a positive, creative activity.Image
