To reach out to residents, organizations, and businesses in Middletown and surrounding towns, in aiding our fundraising campaign for the Middletown Skateboard Spot.
To provide a safe place to skate in Middletown, so skateboarders can Ollie, Lipslide, and Kickflip to their heart’s content closer to home. Skateboarding is a popular, healthy form of recreation for our youth. In providing the Skateboard Spot for our youth, we believe we will give them a positive diversion, raise self esteem, and keep them off the streets where skateboarding is illegal. We hope the Skateboard Spot Campaign effort will be an inspiration to any person or group in Middletown for creating other needed recreational sites for our youth, through community support.
A contribution from everyone is sure to get the project done!

So What is the Knuckler Program All About?
While the Frederick County Knucklers, a Middletown Rec Council program, is based out of Middletown, Maryland where our marble shooting rings are located, the program reaches out to boys and girls ages 7 to 14 throughout Frederick County including Frederick City. During the year, we reach out to over 600 kids with clinics held at scouting, educational and other activities to introduce the fun of both playing and collecting marbles. At those clinics, we show kids how to play the game of Ringer on portable marble rings and then send them home with a free bag of marbles along with an invitation to pursue the sport of competitive marbles as a member of the Frederick County Knucklers. As a member of the Knucklers, the kids learn the art of shooting a marble and then proving their skill in several tournaments throughout the spring and early summer months with the top players competing in a four day national competition on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey. All this, from the free bag of marbles to the local tournaments and the trip to Wildwood are provided at no cost to the children or their families.
Let us know if you would like for us to present a demonstration on how to play competitive marbles for your group. Please know that there is no cost to you for demos or for any other activities within the Middletown Recreation Council Marbles Program.
