    A NOTE FROM KATHIE

    This week and next will be busy for me because I'm visiting one of my 3 sisters in Santa Cruz California this weekend and I'm off to Venezuela for the Speed Worlds next weekend. That means I'll have to miss my Sunday chats for the next 3 weeks (unless I can figure out how to log on from Venezuela) but don't let that stop you from chatting away without me on Sunday nights.

    I will be in Santa Cruz October 24-26 and I'll be in Venezuela October 31 through November 11. Before I leave for South America I'll post a some links on my home page to Web sites where Speed Worlds daily updates will be posted, and I will also post a link to a thread on my message board where I will post trip reports as often as I can.

    Hugs from Venice Beach!

    - Kathie

    PS:
    I have some cool articles coming up in the next few weeks, including a profile of a Canadian artist who has created a beautiful new line of skating T-shirts, plus profiles of skating book authors Liz Miller ("Get Rolling") and Barry Publow ("Speed on Skates"). I'm also working on quite a few other articles and a huge number of skater profiles so stay tuned!
