We just received an email from the RSA about an attempt to get roller skating in the Olympics. It’s certainly worth a try, and even if it doesn’t work, it might create some publicity and excitement around roller skating. Here is the message we received. . . .
Fellow RSA Members, Jim and Judy Link, suggested that, riding on the coat tails of the Olympics, RSA members, particularly Kids Skate Free members and those who send out newsletters, should encourage their customers to write the Olympic committee to try to get roller skating sports included in the Olympics.

This email goes out to a lot of different addresses. Many of you have customer email lists, facebook pages, twitter accounts, etc. So if the people that see this pass this on to their friends and/or customers, we would have a huge amount of people thinking about roller skating while the Olympics are going on. It’s worth a try and wouldn’t cost you anything. Take a minute to post this on your facebook page, twitter feed, email list, etc and see what kind of excitement we can generate. Use #olympicrollerskating to generate some extra traction.
