    It is really fabulous – but get a helmet already!!!! Major skating corportations in the US won’t allow their youngsters to skate without helmets – and neither should we – we should be promoting good practice!

      I agree with you on that one, Head gear should. Be worn, and also knee and elbow pads as well.

        Great event and two thumbs up to the organizers and C.O.H. but please make these youngsters wear helmets before one of them gets seriously hurt. Safety, safety, safety!!!

    #Gabbs I agree! All safety equipment is a requirement to register! Nice event for the guys who skate around Hamilton looking for an event just like this.
