RAIN may have stopped the planned skateboard gala - but nothing was going to prevent the enthusiasts on Sunday.

Organisers of the Skate, Scooter and BMX Jam event at Sprotbrough Skate Park, on Anchorage Lane, decided to postpone the event because of the rain on Friday.

But on Sunday - the day the event should have happened - skaters still turned out, contest or no contest, to show their skills.

Steve Gratton, one of the organisers, said they had been expecting a washout, and felt running the jam on a wet skate park could be dangerous.

The event has been put back to Sunday, September 2.
