On Monday, March 4th George Powell and Stacy Peralta gave a factory tour to Warren Currie and his family. During the launch of the film, two factory tours were offered. Warren purchased one of the tours from the Bones Brigade site. Warren owns the skateshop Easy Rider in Edmonton, AB Canada, and also hosted a screening of the film.
Starting the tour off with a meeting in the conference room. From left to right: Trey, Griffin, Angela, Warren, George and Stacy.

The best way to cool down wheels that are fresh out of the oven is by placing them on the ground. Remember, heat rises!
