8pm Saturday 2/8/09 Cal Skate in Rohnert Park
A girlfriend of mine had her birthday party at Cal Skate in Rohnert Park on Saturday night. If you haven’t been there in years, you should check it out! Total blast from the past! I had completely forgotten how much power and energy it takes to motor your ass around the rink.
The background on this one is that I used to be a competitive artistic quad roller skater back in the day when Star Skate was still above ground. After I grew out of my old skates, I bought myself a sweet pair of LaBeda quad speed skates ’cause that’s what all the cool kids wore when I was young. They’ve been in the back of my closet for so long, the rubber cushions wore out after I was skating for only a little while.
Anyway, I’ve been hearing about Sonoma County Roller Derby for so long, I hear Tuesday’s is their newbie night. I think I’m going to wait until my new cushions are installed on my skates before I go. Last thing I want to do is get my butt over there to watch and not be able to skate!
