Our rink has uncoated maple wood floor. Do you want me to talk to our rink owner?

It wouldnt even have to be a meet. Just a day of skating on wood and powder. An open invitation to anyone that wants to come skate and see what it used to be like. I know where we can aquire wheels in bulk at $20.00 a set.
An open practice with races, relays and fun. I would love to do it but I already have the wheels.

Generally, do you think rink owners frown on the powder messing up their carpet etc.?

Lets put it thisaway, for 50 years or so prior to plastic wheels, EVERY rink used rosin in one form or another to cut down on slippage on their bare uncoated wood floors, more during speed practice of course but they used it during public sessions as well. Standard Vacume cleaners and eventually larger Clarke Industrial Vacumes were usually run over the aisles and carpets at days end to prepare the rink for the next days activities....it was simply part of every day rink maintainence, I never once heard any one complain about it....it was a way of life...

Default Floor Powder

Again "powder" Had To Go!
There Are Many Pictures Around Of The Old Tomer Racers From Back In The Teens Of Rollin Cioni And Fred Martin And Many Others And Powder Was Used. So It Had Been Around A Long Time - As Was Wooden Wheels.
When Plastic Coated Floors Came Around And Plastic Wheels Back In
1977 It Seemed The Racing Track Was Constantly Being Moved Because The Plastic Coating Was Taken Up By The Wheels.
What Happen To That Plastic?

Tony, you answered your own question in part as to what happened to the plastic that was once on the track...some of it adhered to the wheels, some of it due to abrasion went airborne, some of it went into the floor scrubbers when the floor was swept and cleaned...no different than your car tires, where does it go when your tires wear down??

By the way the first plastic coated floor I ever saw was in 1960, Park Circle Roller Rink in Brooklyn, NY....the 60's and more so the 70's saw an explosion of coatings over prior barewood floors....the beginning of the end of the sport as we knew it unfortunately...

We are just now taking over the station on the 15th, so I haven't been up there to go through the inventory yet. In the mean, I have a buddy who's gonna try to fine a machine he had a few years back.

Tony:

Your efforts to help preserve the history of the sport in the form of Film, Tape and Dvd are admirable. As far as the comment that it is time some other person does something besides you, to my way of thinking alls you have to do is go back on this forum as an example and see the work that others provided before you ever discovered it, to see you are not alone....
Tracy comes ot mind fairly quickly!

Others include those that:

1. Ran a meet at their own expense and never recovered fincancially and came back for more.

2. Officiated at their own expense.

3. Developed product and barely recovered.

4. Coached as you did at no income to speak of.

5. Paid for skaters entry fees and lodging and transport to meets.

6. Represented their State and Region at various meetings at their own costs.

7. The parents that footed the bills for the kids when they needed skates and money to try and make it happen...

The list goes on but I can think of more than a few dozen folks that fit that category, and I bet you can as well..

It may be your "Powder can" but it was not the ONLY Powder Can out there if you get my drift...

Just my take on the subject...

Hey guys, the films are safely in my office (temp controlled ).
I'm still waiting for the TV station take over, it starts in the morning, so hopefully we're getting closer!

Don't give up on me.

Things are a little tougher since the college sold their gear.

P.S. If you haven't seen me in a while shoot me a PM.

Yes, I can. There is someone locally that can transfer them to imovie's digital file format for me and I can do as many DVDs as needed myself on my Mac with iMovie. I can even have my 13 year old put them on you tube. It's that easy.

Keri

And Tony....I know of your problems with people not returning them in the past. I'm not asking you for your copies.

What I'm Talking About Is There Has To Be Many People That Have Films Tapes Dvds Of Past Nationals - Going Back To Maybe The Beginning (1937).
Of All People You Again Spiltwoods. How Many People Do You Know Thats Has Films Tapes Dvds??? Why Don't They Put Theirs On This Web Site.
I've Been Asking Since I Got On This Web Site To Who Placed 2nd And 3rd In 1937 - 38 - 40 - 41 - 42 - 43 - 44 And 1949 & 50.
No Answe Yet.
Yet As Soon As Someone Ask S A Question If I Know Or Have Old Skate Magazines To Find The Answer I Do It.
Can't You People Understand Why We Are A Do Nothing Sport???
Check Any Other Sport And I'm Sure You'll Find All The Data You Need.
Again Someone Else Besides Myself Has To Help Out.
As For Doing Things For Racers. My Home Was A Open Hotel For Roller Speed Skaters From Around The Usa For Years.
I Was The Coach - Travel Agent - Baby Sitter - I Too Ran Speed Meets For Years And With Marcia Yager And Tim Small At The Meets They For Sure One Of Best In The Country The Other Being Anniston, Ala Meet Put On By Uncle Hank Werner.
Spiltwoods Again Wise Up.
