Roller Skating Rink Pet Peeves

From hikkergurl: "When I first learned to skate, there were rules at roller skating rinks. If we didn't follow them we were pulled off the skate floor. What I observe at my local rink is kids skating in all directions. The rink does have skate guards but they do nothing to enforce any of the rules. Most of the guards don't even put their skates on..."

    From j nolesfan: "Any advice on feet falling asleep in skates? I've always felt I had poor circulation in my feet. Is there a recipe for tying speed boots that will help me out?

    Are Roller Rinks a Poor Man's Sport?

    From chunchmeow: "It might just be a regional thing, but rinks are closing in my area because they just can't afford the taxes and fees to keep open. The survivors seem to be in poor neighborhoods where security is an issue so they end up getting a bad rap.

The few remaining are in areas I would not frequent..."
