The Oregon Trifecta has spots open to all skaters (sponsored, non-sponsored and women). However, the contest is tough - make sure you really know what you are doing in a skatepark before you enter as a non-sponsored skater. The Oregon Trifecta is a great way to get into and compete in a pro event without having a sponsor.
