   group who are involved in some great local leagues. We skate a
   different area every weekend (some night skates), as well as host
   trips to Tampa and St. Pete. We are sponsered by Flamingo Coast
   (RollerBlade Sales and Rentals) on St. Armands Circle, who gives us
   discounts on equipment. We have our own instructor who hosts lessons
   for beginners and novices every two weeks as well as private lessons

   affiliated with USA Inline Hockey League, I think) will be starting
   this fall (1996), but the ranks of the usual folks were recently
   raided by FSU starting up a team, so they are trying to build
   membership for the fall.
   There is a $22 annual membership that provides insurance. It's
   optional, but it gives you a $2 discount off of the $7 pick-up game
   fee. You can also pay $45 at the beginning of each month (for the game
   fees). It is also co-ed and they do have some women playing.
   If you come play, make sure to bring a white and dark jersey or shirt.
       Teams are assigned from the sign-up list from each night, so you
       won't know which color you'll be until right before game time.

   novice to experienced skaters. The club provides guided skates through
   the city of London, Ontario and exposes skaters to sidewalk, roadway

   etiquette", and common sense approaches to skating, it also works
   toward promoting a healthy and positive skating environment
   The club skates various routes and covers approximately 12K on each
   outing. The club skates at a comfortable pace for all skaters and
   regroups regularly. We watch out for each other and adjust the route
   for any member that may have problems with any part (ie steep hills or
   an injured member). The club also provides an organized body to
   approach adminstration or politicians about issues involving inline
   skating and skaters' rights.
