Youth turn it on for visitors

BY ADRIAN MILLER

WHILE the adults were at the pubs, bowling clubs or RSL clubs celebrating Anzac Day, the youth of the Clarence Valley were being thrilled with a 'Totally Wickid' display.

The Totally Wickid event, which featured BMX riders, in-line skaters and skateboarders, provided a fun-filled afternoon of clinics and demonstrations.

More than 100 kids turned up at Wherrett Park, Maclean, to watch current Australian champions in all three disciplines strut their stuff and impart some of their vast knowledge and tips.

Aspiring competitors were also able to impress the touring crew with a competition held to high- light the skills of the locals.
