This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

What about signing up before the online sign up ends and only pay $55???

The price is for marathon or half marathon - the Time Trials and Skate in the Dark are free if you participate in the marathon.


Where else than at Squiggy do you get 3 great skates in warm sunny Florida for $55 if you sign up online and $65 if you come last minute and sign up at site?????


Hope to see you there, it will be great and as it looks now - Jorge Botero will race!!!

IT'S HERE - FINALLY FRIDAY 13th MARCH - Squiggy 2009 - let's begin!!!!

It seems that we will have a splendid day - at least splendid weather.

Do me a favor - remember that sunscreen Yes its only the beginning of March, but that means almost summer here in Florida and the Florida sun burns!

It was a warm skate - but Alex Fedek nevertheless cut almost a minute of the previous course record.

If you´re still sitting on the fence, then get down :-) and come skate with us tomorrow - Sunday 15 March.

On site registration starts at 7am at the Ranger Station see driving directions here: http://www.squiggyclassicinline.com/...directions.php

All results from Squiggy Classic Inline 2009 - see above link

Thanks to all skaters and to all the volunteers that came and helped us make this the best Squiggy ever!!!

Looking forward to read the race stories, being a meet director, so many things are just lost in making sure that everything gets done.

See you in just short of a year at Squiggy Classic Inline 2010 - second weekend of March!!

Finally someone gets it. Nobody wants to pay 50-75 bucks for photos. $5 is about right.

I have already an agreement with Jorge that he will skate it in less than 1hr. - you wanna bet with me that it will happen??

Awesome job, Hong! You've moved past me and can no longer even see me in your rear view mirror. You've come a long way in the past couple years!

What a fantastic Squiggy Classic! Thanks to Jess, Birget and all the volunteers for make it the best ever. I don't know how it can be improved, but knowing you Gals, I'm sure it will be. Thanks you for everything.

Seeing so many of my Skate Buds again and making new one's is so much fun. Thanks to all of you who spoke to ole' LezSk8. You made my day!

I enjoyed rolling to the start line with you Mom Beb and congratulations on finishing the marathon. You can do it, Gal!

Tom, good to see you posting again. We missed seeing you and hope everything works out for you to skate the Squiggy in 2010. As you always say, "...It's going to be great!"

That's my wish as well for all you SLFer's too, so ...

LezSk8!
