For the first time in about four years, a bowl jam will be held at Dubbo Skate Park.

The competition will be held this Saturday, starting at 12pm for BMX riders, skateboarders and those looking to show off their scooter tricks.

It’s a gold coin donation to take part and George Wilkinson said the money will go towards upgrading the lower section of the skate park.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we’ve got a world class bowl, we just need the lower section to match,” Mr Wilkinson said.

The section has suffered from wear and tear and Mr Wilkinson said Dubbo Regional Council and the skating community had been working together to design plan for its refurbishment.

It’ll also be a way to unite the skate park users, he said as they were no longer the tight-knit family like they were around 2010.

Each competition will be divided into under 15s, under 18s and opens, with a range of prizes up for grabs. More than 100 people are expected to participate.
