Last night, the Elemental Awareness Foundation put on a game of S.K.A.T.E. in Orange County. The annual event is part of the “Yorba Linda Old Town Holiday Festival” and through this activity it’s given the youth that are no longer lured by Santa’s firetruck a chance to join the rest of the community for an evening of holiday cheer.  The turnout was great and the level of skating even better. Two rounds were held at a time with judges at each game. The winner advanced in the bracket ultimately moving closer to a spot in finals.

In in the end, Zach Payton (left) faced off against last years winner and defending champion Marcel (right) in finals. After a heated and very exciting final round, it was Zach Payton who overcame and now holds the Yorba Linda game of S.K.A.T.E. crown. Congratulations Zach and a special thanks to everybody who came out last night. We had a blast and can’t wait till next year.
