Boston Skate 2003
September 12-14 in Massachusetts USA

Skate Boston 2003 - September 12-14

Come to Boston for an exciting, fun-filled weekend of skating!

Whether it is cruising the historic waterfront, crossing Downtown, or skating through beautiful suburbs, you will have an awesome time on wheels.

The weekend begins on Friday Night with a great night skate through the City, touring local landmarks, the waterfront and the harbor. We finish with a late night dinner at one of the happening places in the Back Bay.

On Saturday, we feature two skates! Go "Back to School" to check out many of the great colleges in and around Boston. After lunch, it's time to ride the train out to the suburbs for a great skate tour back to the city. Dinner is planned Downtown, followed by a night of partying around town.

On Sunday, we join the Sunday Morning City Skate, and will tour beautiful areas along the Charles River.

Skate Boston 2003 is sponsored by the In-Line Club of Boston and the Boston Chapter of the National Skate Patrol. The skating events are FREE - We look forward to showing you around our fair city! We provide the skating - you provide everything else. If you're an NSP patroller and want to help out, please bring your NSP Shirt.

Skate Boston 2003 Poem in the spirit of "Paul Revere's Ride" by Longfellow.

Listen all skaters and you will hear the rolling of wheels from both far and near on the 12th of September in 2003 They came to Massachusetts happily and skated the Boston streets that year A cry arose if Boston should hold a skate event to view historical sites Send an email to the skaters network And we'll arrive with all of our might We will come by land and come by sea And the Boston club at the Hatch Shell will be Ready to skate and show us some sweet moves (Even though 200 years ago it was the clatter of hooves That shook the town's rafters and roofs)

We look forward to seeing you at Skate Boston 2003!
