*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***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 Skaters going to Burning Man?

Are there any skaters here going to Burning Man this year? I run the Black Rock Roller Disco Camp. We build a roller rink at BM every year. Words can't describe the experience although many people try. I have some video's for people who have never been at http://www.cora.org/Burning%20Man%20Video.html Also I have posted the first ever all girl roller derby game held at Black Rock City on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76G8sc-WZnM

I will be spending 14 days in the desert this year. There is the sense of community and radical self reliance that I think should be injected into the development of skating and the community of skaters.

If you're doing serious races in the fall, this is not for you. It will take you some time to recover. This is no skate in the park.

You, can check out the Black Rock Roller Disco at http://www.cora.org/BlackRockRollerDisco2007.html

Who's going to Burning Man?

Default Skating at Burning Man

Hi Skaters,

From Tuesday, Aug. 21 to Tuesday, Sept. 4, we will be packing up the skates, sound system and fuzzy costumes for the most fantastic time you'll ever have on and off wheels. We're heading for the Black Rock Desert where we will be involved in building a city in the middle of the desert and our part is to build the roller rink. I am talking about Burning Man 2007.

Our camp is the Black Rock Roller Disco. It is one of the more popular camps at Burning Man. We are open 24 hours a day. We build a skate floor about 120 ft by 60 ft. We have about 100 pairs of skates. Some are inline but most are quad roller skates. People skate all day and all night. We present skate lessons every day. One of my greatest feelings is watching the sun rise as we're skating to the music.

This year we have been placed at Center Camp on Esplanade and Evolution. It is one of the most active and visible spots at Burning Man. We have been put on the Center Camp electrical grid, meaning we will have free electricity for our camp. We will bring in a new boomin' sound system. There will be about 40,000 people there and most of them will skate at the rink at some point. This promises to be the best Burning Man experience ever.

If you are going or think about it, check out our camp info at http://www.cora.org/BlackRockRollerDisco2007.html There are videos at http://www.cora.org/Burning%20Man%20Video.html and at http://www.skatinplace.com/SKatinPlaceEpisode5.htm

Any burners out there?

Keep Rollin',

Sounds amazing. Wish I had the money to attend! I will put this on my calendar for next year and start saving now, sounds like something you have to do at least once in your life.
