FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
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
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default Floor Marks

We play Rollerhoc our own recreational version of roller hockey for the less skilled skater. We play indoors on a timber floor and have difficulty preventing marks on the floor. What wheels are best to avoid this problem?

I would think white or clear wheels would leave less of a mark.
Are lighter colored wheels leaving marks as well?

No, I think it is just black wheels. We tape heel-brakes for the few that still use them. Our next concern is whether sticks are scraping the timber floor when striking the puck.
