On Sunday, July 30, CCS held a best trick contest for the grand opening of their first-ever retail store. The store is located in Portland, Oregon and the contest was a jam session with $2,000 in cash prizes.

But that’s not all. The jam went down on a mini replica of the world famous El Toro High. In this case, it was referred to as El Torrito High.

All in all, the interactive event served as a successful launch to the newly rebranded retail space, and it’s cool to see CCS taking a creative approach to their operations.
