Youth Unlimited Revolutions Bayview Bike Park Pump Track

29 Jul

you may remember the Revitalization project from the spring, Youth Unlimited Revolutions Has been working with Scott Laver of the City of Toronto and Mike Hession from Ontario Bike Park Construction along with input from Daniel Scott from IMBA Canada, to come up with a design for the Bayview Bike Park that will appeal to bike riders of all skill levels and disciplines.  Phase on was to build a pumptrack section with an x providing a track for beginners and intermediate to advanced riders.

There were, as expected, a number of youth connected to YU Revolutions on hand to help out and to test the track of course.  Also on hand throughout construction, waiting patiently all week to ride the track was Nick Outram, a Top ranked competitive rider who helped with the build and took the opportunity to ride.

QR Code Event Photobooth

28 Jun

On June 16, Youth Unlimited North York brought together fundraisers and volunteers and build the worlds largest QR Code.  you can lean more about the details of the event at theqrcode.ca and you can see a video below.

One of the ways that I was involved in the event as a sponsor was by setting up a photobooth, we had some fun individuals and groups come through and we e-mailled them their pictures so that they could tweet and share them during the event.

In the end, we did create the worlds largest scannable QR Code and are currently waiting on word from Guinness to see if they will accept the attempt.  Here are some shots from the day.

Birthday Party Photobooth

10 Jun

My good friend Scott who is the Area director of Youth Unlimited North York,  (you may have heard of the QR Code world record attempt coming up www.theqrcode.ca) contacted me last week asking if it would be possible to set up a photobooth at his wonderful wife’s 30th birthday party at Safari restaurant on Friday.

Scott brought a number of props and also had each person write a word that they associate with Kate and take a picture with her.  We also gave people the opportunity to take shots on their own and with their significant others.  It really was a lot of fun.

Youth Unlimited Revolutions BMX Park Revitalization

15 May

Last weekend, Youth Unlimited Revolutions gathered the support of around 100 volunteers and worked to revitalize a BMX park that has been left un maintained for quite some time.  The project got the attention of the local councillor and a couple of trail building groups as well and will see an even bigger project happening in July with additional elements being added to the park.  After a bit of work, it was necessary for some of the youth to get out and test their work.  Here are some images and a timelapse of the day.
