Dangerous Skating Rinks Another Threat to Society: Weston FL Bans Skating Rinks and Whistler BC Canada Wants You to Skate Free

Just a few miles from Florida's great tourist destination outdoor speedskating oval and cycling velodrome, a Florida town has banned skating rinks. Clearly skating rinks are more dangerous than everything else that's allowed down there in Florida. What happened to protecting small businesses? Where will the children go for the chicken dance fun? Greenlight. Redlight.

Let's remember not to spend any money there.

Meanwhile silly Canadians don't know how dangerous skating rinks can be. They seem to believe that skating rinks can be family fun, that they foster tourism and that the skating should even be free, sponsored by the government, no less...even for people who don't live there! 

You know you're out of any ability to deal with real problems when you need to legislate skating.

Be careful if you visit Canada. Lots of skaters up there. And you might have fun getting some exercise.

Eighty and Still Skatey! 80 Laps for the Lady

Just in case you want another reason to keep on skating, consider Agatha Van Der Starre's 80th birthday celebration on ice. She did 80 laps with friends to celebrate 80 years. Like many who love various forms of skating, she came to it late in terms of joining the speedskating club. Being from Holland and then Canada, it'd be crazy to think she never skated, but it seems her speedskating started some time around 1980 in a serious way. She medaled at the British Columbia games a couple of years later, and fifteen years after that, still going strong...
