Headline from the Norman Transcript, November 26th, 2007: "Police Disburse Mob at Skateland." A later story explained that "several Greek fraternities, no longer allowed to have parties on campus following the alcohol-related death of a fraternity pledge at the University of Oklahoma three years ago, approached the Skateland owners seeking a venue large enough to host college dance parties."

The sign is the original, except that carries a new name, Starskate.
