FOLLOWING the success of the inaugural Totem Skateboarding-Scooter, BMX and Skate Competition late last year, Upper Hunter Community Services (UHCS) will host a couple of workshops at Muswellbrook and Denman this weekend.
The sessions include all equipment and focus on beginner skills, as well as those participants from intermediate to advanced.
The Muswellbrook clinic is scheduled for Saturday, April 13, at the skate park (Rutherford Road) between 10am and noon.
Afterwards, another one will take place at the Denman skate park (Virginia Street) from 2pm until 4pm.

A free Totem Skateboarding-Scooter, BMX and Skate Competition will then be conducted at Denman on Sunday, April 14, starting at 10am.
"The day was a huge hit [last September] with more than 40 competitors and 150 spectators at Muswellbrook," UHCS community and youth development officer Bec Eveleigh said.
"It was a pleasure to be a part of such a positive event.
"So, we're hoping to get a similar response this weekend.
"There'll be under-10, 11-14 years, 15-plus and girls' competitions - as well as a free barbecue lunch.
"On top of that, there are plenty of prizes up for grabs.
"We'll also have a return bus from Muswellbrook to Denman for anyone who is interested in attending.
"Registrations are essential for the workshops and comp, too."
