from Jan Welch on 8 Nov 2022

Skate of the Nation is an annual event in the West African coastal city of Accra, Ghana, that will take place on December 17th, 2022. Donate to the GoFundMe at https://gofund.me/c6ed167a.Samuel Dela Ahiataku and his school, DS Roller Sports Academy, have been organizing the event since 2019, which combines freestyle, slalom, high jump, long jump, and speed skating competitions. Sam also offers free inline skating and skateboarding lessons to anyone who wants to try them for the first time. No one who attends this event pays a thing; Sam covers accommodations, transport, and food for everyone who needs it! This event has no official sponsors and has previously been crowdfunded by selling t-shirts and other means. This year a GoFundMe page has been set up to raise $500 for the event. If you are able and want to support the event and the growth of inline skating in Ghana, consider donating. Any amount, no matter how small, will ensure the success of this event.Donate to the Skate of the Nation GoFundMe: https://gofund.me/c6ed167aEpisode Links:To contact Sam you can email him at sammydela44@gmail.comDonate to the Skate of the Nation GoFundMe: https://gofund.me/c6ed167aFollow Skate of the Nation on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/skateofthenation_/Follow DS Rollersports Acadamy on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dsrollersportsacademy/Subscribe to Sam on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRNDpVzdiYRsLEHVBZXCHVAFollow Sam on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/skatesam_gh/Follow Sam on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sammydela44Support Samuel on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/skatesam_gh/BECOME A PATREON SUPPORTERhttps://www.patreon.com/thenandnowbladingPatreon members receive access to exclusive videos not available on YouTube and Ad-Free versions of the videos on YouTube.MAKE A DONATIONhttps://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=J9QHDM7G5RCYYTHEN AND NOW BLADING MERCHhttps://thenandnowblading.com/shop/Then and Now Links:Website: http://www.thenandnowblading.comPodcast: https://redcircle.com/shows/then-and-now-blading-podcastPatreon: https://www.patreon.com/thenandnowbladingFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/thenandnowbladingInstagram: http://www.instagram.com/thenandnowbladingTwitter: https://twitter.com/thenandnowbladeInstagram: http://www.instagram.com/janericwelchThe gear I use for my videos: GoPro Hero 9 Black Starter Bundle – https://amzn.to/35OrhOZIVISII G2 Pocket RGB Camera Light – https://amzn.to/3wbHnzZNeewer 3 Pieces Bi-Color 660 LED Video Light and Stand Kit – https://amzn.to/3wfMXS0Fotodiox Single-Roller Roll Paper Drive Set with Wall Mount Support for Mounting 1x Paper Background Roll – https://amzn.to/3MVeT3fSavage Seamless Paper Photography Backdrop – #56 Fashion Gray (86 in x 36 ft) – https://amzn.to/3u4z4TRBlue Yeti USB Mic for Recording & Streaming – https://amzn.to/3A1PFIIRode Microphones Wireless GO II Dual Channel Wireless Microphone System – https://amzn.to/2ZQo7daRode Lavalier GO Wearable Microphone – https://amzn.to/39VeWd9GoPro Media Mod (Hero 9) – https://amzn.to/3yPe9VV GoPro Max Lens (Hero 9)- https://amzn.to/3xXmSo1Blackmagic Design Davinci Resolve Speed Editor Bundle with Davinci Resolve 17 Studio (Activation Card) – https://amzn.to/3w9Z2YNWD 5TB My Passport Ultra for Mac Silver Portable External Hard Drive HDD – https://amzn.to/3JilvXeSanDisk Extreme Pro Micro SDXC UHS-I U3 A2 V30 Memory Card (256GB) – https://amzn.to/3AGBHNl #thenandnowblading #inlineskating #rollerblading #blading #skating
