*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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 About the Palm Beach Inline Challenge

The Palm Beach Inline Challenge is an indoor and outdoor inline speed skating competition held every January in South Florida. The event is an invitation-only meet that is sanctioned by USA Rollersports and organized by the Stardust Speed Club. The Palm Beach Challenge includes an indoor competition at the Atlantis Skateway Roller Skating Rink near West Palm Beach and outdoor banked and flat track events at the Brian Piccolo Velodrome, in Brian Piccolo Park, just north of Miami.
