Everything old is NEW again!
It’s time to dust off those roller skates and crush the World Record for the longest unbroken skate chain!
On Sunday, July 29, 2018, the members of the Church of 8 Wheels, the skaters from the Black Rock Roller Disco (Burning Man Theme Camp) and the Bayview Community are going to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest chain of roller skaters and we need you to participate!
We will begin on-site registration at the entrance to the Hunters Point Shoreline park adjacent to India Basin Shoreline Park at 10am. Participants must pre-register for the event. The cost of registration is $10.00 per person. Skate rentals are available and costs $10.00. If you are a Bayview Hunters Point resident, we can wave the fees for you but you must email your request (including your name, address and skate size) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we successfully set a new world record we will celebrate at our 7th annual Circus Festival! With performances by Circus Bella, the Prescott Circus Theatre a Giant Fun slide, open community skate zone and sooooo much more.
HERE ARE THE RULES – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!!!
There are quite a few guidelines that must be followed in order for our Guinness World Record attempts to be validated. Please read all the info below and be prepared when the time comes to skate.
Every participant must be registered for the world record event. Each participant will receive a bib number that must be placed in plain sight on their chest area. The event will be videotaped from many angles and by many media people. The registrations, bib numbers, videotapes and media coverage are all crucial elements in the verification process.
The World’s Longest Chain of Roller Skaters is specifically for four-wheel “quad” roller skates.
Each skater will hold on to the other skater’s hips as the group moves together a distance of at least 400 meters without breaking the chain. HOLDING ONTO CLOTHING, BACKPACKS OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE PERSON’S HIPS IN FRONT OF YOU VOIDS THE RECORD ATTEMPT. IF THE CHAIN BREAKS AT ANY POINT THE ATTEMPT IS VOID.
Be aware of the kind of clothing that you wear. We want everyone to be bright and colorful, but we don’t want you or others tripping or being interfered with by hats, long coats, scarfs, feather boas or other articles that would cause the record to be voided. You must be a competent skater to participate.
No pets are allowed.
No dogs on leashes.
Participants must be at least 12 years old to participate.
All funds from the event will go to the Black Rock Roller Disco, a Burning Man theme camp that builds a roller skating rink in the desert and spreads religion throughout the land!!!
