I would love to see some pics from there! used to go all the time in the late 70's early 80's. there are still songs that when I hear them on the radio, I can remember skating to them. Like Double dutch bus,Our lips are sealed,Ladies night by Kool and the gang,and there was this song by KC and the Sunshine band-Please dont go-that the couples used to skate to. I was just a little kid and would get mad when I had to leave the floor for all those couples!

I used to go there in the late 70s early 80s, everytime I hear that song "Oh what a night" I get this strong urge to put on a pair of skates.LOL I graduated KHS in 81, just a few short years ago, it seems like kids now can't get together and have fun without violence.

didn't the skating rink start going down hill when the rumor was that a girl got drugged out there? someone put something in her drink? i was young but i remember my mom wouldn't let me go after that. It was probably just a rumor, it was when the Grasse lady had it.

I went to the skating rink in Campbell...it just wasn't the same. I'm not sure they want adults skating though.

Gee......you all make me feel so old! I was there in the mid fifties, on the west side of town. It was a great time to be a teenager. Had lots of good clean fun.

I also loved that skating rink...There was just something about those years in high school. I graduated in 1979...Occasionally I still drive to Poplar Bluff to skate..A middle aged skater...imagine ha I remember going on Friday night out on the bypass and when there was a 30, 40 or 50 something on the floor, I thought are you lost, or are you chaperoning your kids? Now I am that middle aged person on a pair of roller skates..
Sorry honey!!! If you graduated in 79 you're on the backside of a middleAger!!! Lol! I'm right with you! And I probably skated with you. I was in high school when you graduated and went to school with you:) I have many many memories at the skating rink. Best times of my life! I don't come to topics much. Just stop by to see if anyone was talking about the devastating incident that occurred last night.:( Well no since in leaving me any comments because more than likely I won't be back for a while. I'm not a fan of topix!!!!!!! Actually hate it!! To much drama here!!

Ohhh yeah plenty of gooood memories, I used 2 go every fri & sat nite, & some x's on Sunday evenings. And the all nite skate parties. I never will 4get I had my white roller skates wit pink wheels.. There were 3 of us girls me & my sisters.. We would try our hardest 2 do the limbo. There was 1 guy that could get really low wit out knocking the pole down I think his name was Johnny Barnes. After a few bumps & bruises I finally learned 2 skate frontwards, backwards, sideways.. I remember dale Gibson , & a few other referees out there, Jackie gattis, there was a woman I can't remember her name but she's the 1 that taught me how 2 skate. Her first name was sheila. & I remember Barry I think was his name & jimmy... Sooo many memories. Now it a church...

I remember the couples skate. Find someone and hold hands while skating to a slow song. The songs that take me back there are: Mr. Roboto, Just a swinging, and Africa(ToTo) Good times. I think it just got to rough out there to last.

I went there in the early 80's when The Grasses ran it.Loved everything about it. From the hair, the clothes, pompoms on my skates, the music, hanging out with friends, the video games---PACMAN & Astroids were big then. Those were good times! good times!
