Slide Quest Poster.  Illustration: Mark Short Slide Quest will be a two day event, headed by a day of sliding, and followed by a day of skating at some of the infamous parks and hills that Bristol has to offer.

The event is suported by Lush and organised by slide legends Mark Short, Piet Weikens and Will Edgecombe who will also be giving slide tutorials. 

Camping is available for those wishing to attend both days, but be warned, the camping is on hard concrete, so there is no soft ground to secure tent pegs. Alternate accomodation can be found in BnBs or hostels in Bristol. Its a fairly civilized city, get on google and see what you can find.

Entry fee to the competition is £8 if you pre book a space, £10 if you pay on the day. Spaces are limited, so pre book to avoid disapointment!

You may wish to only attend the freeskating on sunday, there is no charge if you only attend the freeskating.

Please note: All skaters must wear a helmet! We also recommend slide gloves and knee/elbow pads.

All entrants to the competition are required to fill out an indemnity waiver, you can do this at the inscription desk on the day.
