Brad Jordan, Amy Shepherd, Aleesha Frazee (rip) April Jordan they were all from South Shore, those are a few others I remember.I remember my cousin Joe Baker walking around all night asking girls for money and he would leave that place with like 50 bucks every night. not that it was right but you say things to these girls and they were willing to just give them money for a skate partner or whatever. Lol the one person talking about that they knew a Chuck tht could skate yea it was probably Chuck Stacy, him, Richie and a few others use to synchronize skate all the time, I remember all the girls would line up to watch them. It's sad my kids go there now, my 11 yr old thinks the world is going to end if he can't go to Skatelan every weekend. Just walking into that place, the smell, the music etc brings back so many memories.

It might be Chuck Stacey...does he fit my description? Tall, blonde curly hair & a wicked skater. Did he pass away? If so...when & how? I used to have the biggest crush on him. Everytime I hear that song by REO Speedwagon..."I'm gonna keep on loving you" I think of Chuck. Funny how a song can bring back memories/feelings from childhood.

he wasn't really tall but he was blond and a very good skater. he passed away like 10 yrs ago I think, I would rather not say on here what happened as I am sure it's a very personal matter for his family.

I just read about Aaron (RIP) in the New Boston forum...wow... It is absolutely unbelievable how far down hill Scioto County has gone. To Ryan and the rest of the Lodwick family, I am so sorry for your loss...

i know one of the smoke bomb boys was abby boemont's(spelling?) boyfriend. can't remember his name. hung out with the baker boys.
i forgot to mention scott jenkins, last i saw he was working at BW3's. then there was brandy keyser, richie's little sister.
the longer i think about it the more names will come back to me i'm sure. i dont remember mackie kingery being there until the last say 5 yrs or so. so i can't say for sure that he was a part of any of the "way back when" crews.

I can remember joe asking for money to GET INTO skatelan, before he would start to ask them for money for food, drinks, gas money for a ride, etc. i haven't seen him in years. wasn't he dating a friend's mom a few years ago? same cat that dated abby B.
my kids love going to skatelan too. altough not for the same reasons i did. i think they are more interested in hanging out and playing games. apparently i didn't pass my rhythm down to them....
i can't believe pat is still working there after all this time. i feel like he's been there since the place opened!

does anyone remember a grandpa doing crazy almost ice-skating like tricks in the practice rink? i think he came with some girl named Leah, but i'm not 100% on that.
