Great story on Chris! So did you start out in Mo yourself? What club did you skate for when you competed in FS?

I started out in New Jersey. Actually in Keasburg, then Lakewood ...like i said i remeber those wed after sessions practice at lackwood around 1964 or so..before that i would go to Riverside for the late night Fri practice..i skated Singles and speed. In 1970 i moved to Greeley, co to skate for Jay Norcross...i coached speed there while i skated...had a few good skaters.Boddy Tedder use practice with us, Doug James {fastest guy i ever met who never won anythilng big} Everett Cox out of Kansas use to skate for us..Kathey Lee, she got 2 0r 3rd one year in a sr relay, 2 lady i think, mayb e 76 or so...everyone loved to practice at our rink i would like to think it was cause i such a great coach and ran a great practice...but probabaly had more to do with our floor, fastest floor i ever skated on..the boards were curved, so skated with grain all the way round the track

Chris skated out of our region until 75 or 76 then he went to Texas..every now and then he enter a singles contest, great talent in anything he wanted to do. just like must great champs

Did you ever have the opportunity to skate at the original Riverdale Rink in RI, before they built the New Riverdale?? Now that was a fast floor, the corners were all steam bent, so there also you never left the grain., and boy was it a tight bare wood surface......I think the first meet I skated at theer was probably in 1960 or there abouts.....

I refereed Regionals at the new rink, some time in the 70's...

i skated both riverdale rinks, warwick and w bridgewater but not until the 70s to 90s and w bridge closed i think in the 80s? bridgewaters floor was awful but the rink was nice. warwick had the best floor in the region, too bad they didnt have meets there in the 90s and the place wasnt still open.

Some tips on restoration. You could use "Neverdull" metal polishing wads to remove some of tthe grime and rust spots on the steel base plates.
The product is freely available at your neighborhood hardware store.

The wheels could easily be touched up on a rink wheel grinder. The Looseball cones and bearings and d washer and nuts as well as axles could all be replaced with new parts, if needed. The wheel LB Cups can also be hand polished.

For the leather, I like Lexol, both the conditioner and cleaning products, to put some new life back into the dried out material, in and outside the boot. If the tongues are dryrotted, any bootmaker can replace that for you. Lexol is also available at area Tack shops anywhere fine leather goods are sold.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for this info. I have an old pair of my dads, (George Moore 1938 & 1940 speed skating champion) speed skates that I would like to restore. Thats all that I have from his era of skating so if anyone out there has any photos or articles about him, I would love to hear from you and possibly arrange to get copies. My email is billdazey@sbcglobal.net. I'm new to skatelog forum and this is my first post. Barbara

Great picture of the 1966 Eastern Region Mens Relay Champions.

It was a privlege to skate with Calvano on several Relay Championship teams in earlier years....

We won both NY Sates and the North Eastern Regionals in 1961, 62 & 64 in the 4 man event, and also in 1961 the Mixed 4 Relay as well. Details and a pic of the mixed relay are eslewhere on this thread. By '65- I was serving in the US Marine Corps, and missing my skating buds big time..

How nice to hear from the daughter of a champion of yesteryear! The real historian of the sport of speed skating is Tony Kissing from Cinci, Oh..he does copy the mail on this forum and I am sure will be posting back to you before too long. Do you have any photos of your dad racing you could post on this thread??

Tony does have some old skate magazines from that time frame....

Thanks for replying. Tony has a T-Shirt of my Dad and Vivian Bell that I have asked for a photocopy of. His skate magazines go back to 1946. My Dad did have some neat photos. My step mom should have them. I'm hoping she will donate them to the Roller Skating Museum someday. After my dad's death she moved out of the house and I'm not sure where she is now. She did live in Roswell NM and then moved to El Paso for awhile. She was unhappy that Dad had left me the house which she always knew he was going to do that. I offered to let her live in it rent free for the rest of her life but that wasn't good enough for her. She does have a daughter in Houston and I have her addrress somewhere on an old Christmas card. So I don't have any photos but because I am working on researching my family history I am looking for any articles and photos. I know there were some articles in the Cincinnati paper at the time and someday I plan to visit Cincinnati to see relatives that still live there. All of my past relatives lived there and are buried there. So if you happen to come across any, please email me a copy. My email is billdazey@sbcglobal.net. Thanks. Barbara Dazey

Hi Tracy
Thanks for the note. Tony said he had a Tshirt of my Dad and Vivian Bell. I'm hoping he will photocopy or scan it and email it to me. He said his skate magazines go back to 1946. I'm hoping to visit Cincinnati some time as I still have relatives there. I am researching my family history and all of my relatives lived in Cincinnati and some are buried there. So one day I plan to go there. But if you find anything you have my email. Barbara/bdazey

Thanks again for doing this. Dad enlisted in the Air Force. He became a pilot and mainly flew the KC-135, a refueller tanker. He served in the Air Force for 22 years before retiring at the rank of Major. If he had been seerving in the military today, he would have been able to continue training and persuing his sport! He enjoyed roller skating all his life. Even in his 50s he could still do spins and jumps. He was definitely very talented and very atheletic.

Post George Moore - reply to Tony

Hi Tony
My Dad, George Moore, was born in 2-14-1917 so he was 21 in 1938. He grew up in Hamilton Ohio. In the 60s we lived in Roswell NM and there was only one rink in town. I can remember celebrating my birthdays at that rink but I don't recall the name at the time. Dad was good at picking up the kids that didn't know how to skate and he would skate backwards and help them learn. There was an ice skating rink in Ruidosa NM that we went to a couple of times in the 1960s. And we always watched the ice skating competitions on TV as a family. Was Mr Sefferino the coach for that rink or just the owner or do you know who the coach was for that era. I can't remember Dad ever mentioning he had a coach. I do remember that he volunteered at the rink and taught lessons in exchange for skating time. He was never paid. Barbara/bdazey

barbara:
i would say that BILL SEFFERINO OR CAP SEFFERINO OR BOTH WERE THE COACHES 0R COACH.
CAP (CLIFFORD) WAS A NICKNAME FOR CAPTAIN. CAP WAS CAPTAIN OF THE SKATE BOYS AT THE OLD MUSIC HALL ROLLER RINK HERE IN CINCY.
THE ALSO RAN A RINK AT THE OLD CHESTER PARK AN AMUSEMENT PARK HERE IN CINCY BOTH MUSIC HALL RINK AND THE CHESTER PARK RINK ARE LONG CLOSED.
AS FOR YOUR DAD NOT MAKING MONEY HE WAS A AMATEUR RACER AND COULDN'T MAKE ANY MONEY BACK THEN. THE RULES WERE TOUGH.
AND IF HE WAS DONE COMPETING IT WAS STILL VERY HARD TO MAKE ANY MONEY ESPECIALLY TEACHING SPEED SKATING BACK THEN.
I STARTED COACHING IN THE LATE 50S (BECAUSE SOMEONE HAD TO BE IN CHARGE NOT BECAUSE I KNEW SPEED SKATING THAT WELL BUT I DID LEARN AS THEY SAY IN THE ARMY "OJT" "ON THE JOB TRAINING"!!!)
I NEVER MADE ANY MONEY UNTIL THE LAST COUPLES OF YEARS I COACHED
AND THAT ONLY COVERED THE EXPENSES TO GO TO STATE MEET. THERE WAS STILL REGIONALS AND NATIONALS.
IT'S NOT LIKE COACHING LITTLE LEAGUE - BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL SO MUCH AND YOU COACH BOTH BOYS AND GIRLS FROM AGES 5 YEARS OLD UP.
I MAILED YOU THE PICTURE OF YOUR DAD AND VIVAN BELL THIS MORNING
YOU SHOULD GET THE ENVELOPE MONDAY OR TUESDAY. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK??? -
