                              Skating Suppliers

Many people have asked for a listing of Suppliers for Ice Skating. The
maintainer of the Recreational Skating FAQ has resisted incorporating such a
list in the main FAQ, as is might be taken as an endorsement of certain
suppliers. Thus I have jumped into the breach

The purpose of this document is to enable skaters to locate dealers and
manufacturers of needed supplies. The intent is to list resources no matter
where they may be located in the physical world. The author would like to
receive suggestions for new listings. If the document becomes too large, it
can be broken up into sections.

The author would also like to be informed of changes in phone numbers, and
other contact information of suppliers of skating products. If a suppler
does not wish to be listed, they should contact me. I would also appreciate
being informed if you are unable to connect to a listed site, or if the URL
has been switched to point at an site containing unrelated material. It has
happened that domains that have gone out of business have been purchased for
unrelated sites. If you have tried to connect to a site, and after a couple
of days it still is out, please let me know so that I can make inquiries.

I would be interested in hearing about European and Asian addresses. For
example do Asian skaters use British and American Blades, or do they have
local brands to use.

Retail Dealers

Most of the shops listed will cary a wide range of items ranging from skates
to costumes, cases, leather care and many other useful things. Most Good
shops will also be aware of the market for used skates in the area, Major
shops will often offer a trade in or a consignment sales program in areas
where the local skating clubs are unable to provide this kind of service, as
it is common for young skaters to outgrow their skates long before they are
worn-out.

The quality of individual reatilers does vary over a wide range, but the
best skate shops are staffed by Skaters and Coaches with experience in all
types of skating. A full service dealer will be prepared to mount your
blades and also offer skate repairs.

This list is by no means exhaustive. Listing or omission of a supplier is
not to be taken as any refection on a given supplier. This information is
provided as-is without warranty. If you manufacture a skating related
product or can suggest a  [NEW!] supplier that I have omitted and you would
like the information included in this FAQ. Please write to me with details
of your product and I will endeavor to add them to the list. Suppliers
should take care to send me mail in Plain Text, without HTML encoding.

The problem of HTML encoded mail has encouraged the nice folks who run the
Ham Radio satalite system to post instructions on turning HTML off on
Outlook Express mail at this address:
http://www.amsat.org/amsat/listserv/express.html They say that the details
may vary from version to version. They believe that they have selected
reasonable settings to use all the time for most people, but you may prefer
others. Feel free to use other settings for your other email, but please use
the settings suggested here when you send mail to me. I would prefer to
receive the information in the same format that it would appear in the
listing. Mail received in Microsoft Word Format will be deleted UNREAD.
Please do not use unmodifed Outlook or Internet Explorer to send mail, as
they tend to use encoding that is only readable on mail readers made by the
Microsoft Corporation. Please also provide your complete physical or mail
address even if it appears in your web site, as I often work on my updates
while not connected to the web. Since I normaly use cut and paste to ensure
that addresses are copied correctly, I prefer to receive your information as
text rather than as a graphic.
