Skate & Eat - and Help Save San Diego's Last Roller Rink!

Did you know that San Diego has only ONE roller rink in the entire city? Skateworld has been keepin' the good times rollin' since 1975 and now they are in danger of being forced to close their rink in Linda Vista. We can't let that happen. The Friends of Skateworld (FOSW) is a nonprofit group that is working diligently to see that San Diego keeps this rink. Please visit their website and read about what has been going on with the city council. The FOSW is also organizing some fun fundraising events to help get the public involved. ALL proceeds from these events goes to the fund to help save Skateworld! Don't forget to sign the online petition and send letters of support to the city council!
