Kemistry Suavis 84mm x 80A Yellow

New Inline Skates
Roller Derby has two new inline skates that have just arrived, the Beta and the Delta. Both skates have aluminum frames, Bevo Gold 7 bearings, and a buckle and lace system. The Beta has four 80mm wheels and is solid black. The Delta has three 110mm wheels and is black with teal accents.
Our annual tradeshow is coming up on October 4 and 5, here at our Roanoke warehouse. THIS SHOW IS FOR CUSTOMERS ONLY AND IS NOT OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC.
Here are some notes as we get ready.
The host hotel is the Courtyard Marriot. Call them at 540-563-5002 for reservations and to get in on the group rate of $99.
So far on the vendor list we’ve got confirmations from Roces, RSA, Sure-Grip, and Powell-Bones. They’ll have product samples, details on product releases and dates, and more.
The RSA is working on a meeting for Monday night at the host hotel. They’ll have roundtable discussions, updates from their national office, and plans for their spring meeting.
They will also have a presentation from a gentleman named Richard Houston who is working on a tv gameshow program called “Skate Your Case”. We met him briefly in Florida and it seems like a real interesting idea, with the possibility of some serious publicity for roller skating.
On Tuesday afternoon, as the show winds down, there will be a trip to the FunQuest rink in Lynchburg (now owned by Mason and Matt).
Please be sure to register if you plan to come so we’ll know how much food the caterer should prepare.
