Hello Everybody! I had a really great time at the Inline Speed Skating World Championships in Venezuela this month. It was an exciting event this year with plenty of drama and controversy. I'm still editing and organizing my photos but they will be posted on my Web site soon, along with links to reports and photos on Web sites all over the world. I'm also working on some interesting (and in some cases unusual) articles I think you will enjoy.

I had a big disappointment this month: I was not able to attend the Aggressive Skating World Championships in Pomona, California because I could not get a press pass! Next year I will be more aggressive (in a nice way) about getting a press pass, and start the process earlier, so I will have more time to convince them that I REALLY AM press.

    A Note from Kathie
    Welcome to the new all dressed up version of the SkateLog Newsletter. Do you like this fancy new format with photos and colors or do you prefer a plain text newsletter? Let me know! Also, a few people have commented that my newsletters tend to be a bit long, so watch for more frequent but shorter newsletters in the future. At least I will really try...

    MY EMAIL (UGH): I am receiving a huge avalanche of email every day, and between hundreds of legitimate messages and thousands of spam messages, I have had a big problem staying on top of my email. I am working on several things that will help resolve that problem, so I can stay in touch with my Web site visitors. That is *very* important to me so I will fix the problem for sure, one way or another. I don't want to lose any of my friends in the skating world.

    NEXT CHAT: I have to miss the chat this Sunday but starting December 7, I will be in my chat room every week, waiting breathlessly for you to visit.
