Location Changed to Stoner Skate Plaza

Due to gub'ment permitting issues at Sheldon, the new site for The Boardr Am Los Angeles is Stoner Skatepark. The date and full schedule have not changed at all!

The Boardr Bus RV needs serious parking room, so we have to get a hotel pretty far out, but here are some nearby Stoner that would work.
