*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

Default Skating rink traps: Skittles

It's Black Friday today and everybody is out shopping. I decided to avoid the rat race this year and enjoy a relaxing morning at my local skating rink. I arrived at 10 AM this morning and they just opened their doors. I was the only one there. A few laps and I start collecting gum on the bottom of my wheels with a thump, thump, thump getting louder with each lap of gum build up. I asked the lady at the counter for a spatula so that I can clean up the black gum spots on the floor. She handed me a steak knife and napkin. I skated around and scraped up a few bad gum spots from my favorite turn areas and returned the knife.

Now it's 10:20 AM and a few people have arrived, 2 adults and 2 children behind the PVC on wheels darting like asteroids. By 11:00 AM it peaked to about 12 skaters until closing session at noon. During that time there were Skittles on the rink floor at the SW turn. I collected a couple and took them to the lady at the counter. Next lap, 5 more skittles in that same corner. I collected them and informed the lady at the counter. Next lap, a half dozen more scattered on the floor. I noticed 4 kids sitting on the bench where the candies were located.

I speed skate with crossovers and I think that somebody wanted to see this old man hit their Skittles and fly into the corner wall and eat crap to catch all the action on their cell phone to upload the footage for Youtube. Somebody wasted a whole bag of skittles on this wise, agile and observant old man.

On the way out I picked up some coupons on the front counter for free admission Dec. 26th. - Jan. 4th. at 12:30 - 4:00 pm Matinee Weekday sessions for the Christmas holiday.
