The July 30, 2002 Meeting of the Sacramento Skate Patrol:

The July 30, 2002 Sacramento Branch of the National Skate Patrol Board Meeting was at the home of Julie Kaye.

Pressent: Bernie, Daedre, Don, Gordon, Julie, Mari, Natalie, Steve.

First we enjoyed the hospitality of Julie and Lorne. Then most of us enjoyed a pleasant dip in the pool.

Next came a delicious barbequed beef potluck dinner.

Feeling like royalty, we started our business meeting, discussing the following items:

  • Gordon and Steve gave us some of the main points of the Freedom Skate and the Philadelphia NSP (National Skate Patrol) meeting.
    • Since Explore Wheels is having financial problems, free wheels for the Skate Patrol will be limited.
    • The NSP will probably be switching to a different insurance vendor; the rates are high. Otherwise participation in the NSP will cost individuals more.
    • The next major conference for the NSP will be in Miami Beach, Florida in February 2003. NSP members should plan to attend.
    • NSP participation has been growing, even if our Monday Night Skate has not.
  • Monday Night Skate.
    • At the July 29, 2002 Monday Night Skate many of the skaters did not have helmets. We can only recommend helmets and set a helmet-wearing example.
    • How to balance the needs of the experienced skaters, who want to skate at least an hour and half, with the needs of beginning skaters. Sometimes having 2 skates (1 longer) is good.
  • We discussed the land-fill near 28th Street and the railroad tracks could be used by the City. A skate park is one option. Someday this area will be connected to the American River Parkway. The trail is already started.
  • We reviewed and improved the new promotional flyer for the Monday Night Skate. To use this flyer:
    1. You can search for or come directly to "Sacramento Skating" :http://www.fortunecity.com/marina/anchor/288/
    2. Click on "Monday Night Skate".
    3. Click on "Flyer to help promote the Monday Night Skate".
    4. Print and distribute as many flyers as you want.
      a. Refreshing the screen before printing will usually get rid of the banner ad.
      b. You can fold these 1 page flyers, if you want.
