Hi, I've been mulling this idea for quite some time now: annual awards to recognize excellence in the inline world (and also potentially draw some media attention to the sport). I like the idea of calling them Eddy Awards, in honor of Eddy Matzger, but nothing has been decided yet.
Categories could include:
Skate Product of the Year
Skater of the Year
Innovation of the Year
Promoter of the Year
And whatever else we come up with.
Skaters will vote on their favorites. Trophies will be handed out to the winners. Press releases will be sent out to the media.
What do you think?
