Mandalore

“Once a glorious world, the surface of Mandalore was laid waste by war, leading Duchess Satine Kryze to renounce the planet’s violent history and declare neutrality in the Clone Wars. Satine’s pacifism was opposed by Death Watch, an underground movement of armored warriors that celebrated Mandalore’s martial past and sought to overthrow her. Late in the Clone Wars, Darth Maul took over Death Watch and led the conquest of Mandalore. He executed Satine and installed a puppet prime minister as the planet’s new ruler, sparking a new chapter in Mandalore’s violent history.”

Johnny Hancheck Switches It Up!

A few week’s ago, The People’s Court saw a lot of shade being thrown at one person in particular, Johnny Hancheck. For those of you that don’t know Johnny, he runs a little site called Check The Feed, and seems to have quite the following of haters. In Johnny’s follow up edit to his People’s Court entry, he mid-edit makes a BIG announcement, that he’s, “switching it up,” and leaving Stepchild for his new sponsor Niche. Hopefully Transworld Business will pick up the story, so we can get all the details on why Johnny made the switch.

Riders: Will Steller, Johnny Hancheck, Jay Kurz, Brody Jeffs, and Johnny Hancheck (Yes he is listed twice)

The Brighton Resort is truly a mountain community that takes care of its own. Sam Wittke is on the Brighton Park Staff and friend of the ThirtyTwo brand that has deep Brighton roots, and his mom, Mary Wittke, is in need so the community rallied to support her. Mary has worked for Brighton for 30 years and she is currently battling cancer. ThirtyTwo made a $5 donation for everyone that entered the ThirtyTwo Day event (plus a little), and this $1,032 donation will go to help cover her medical costs. The Brighton Resort sports desk is also accepting donations for anyone else that is interested helping Mary Wittke.
