*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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

Tyngsboro, like Hudson, are both Roller Kingdom rinks. The owners of these rinks are only concerned about lining their pockets and not maintaining the bread and butter, which is the rink floor itself.

A great example of their lackluster attitude is their former 3rd rink, located less than 3 miles from my home. It was in Woonsocket, RI. The floor was severely damaged by water seepage and their answer to swelling floor boards was to remove some to allow for swelling.

I used to speed skate out of the Hudson rink and everyone in the league absolutely hated that floor. It was a wood floor that was painted or coated or something. (who knows what...) It was slippery as hell and only a hard outdoor inline wheel would grip it.

Tyngsboro's floor is like a roller coaster in some spots. How can a company post "skate at your own risk" signs when they don't maintain their floors?
