"It was so much fun to gather for skating and visiting friends that I hadn’t seen since early last fall. It almost felt like a family reunion. And the skating! Well, one would be hard-pressed to find a better surface to skate on. The Coliseum provides just such a floor, and the music selection was terrific! I can’t wait until our next skate. Rock and ROLL on!"

Teddie Matteson

"Wow, this is so great to have it back! Thanks Penny, Nancy and Kim for all your hard work to get this going. Let's spread the word. Owww, I was sore, but a good sore, like every time I feel the pain, I remember the fun. And no, not from falling, just from using muscles that had gotten lazy. (Not that there's anything wrong with falling, that's a part of the sport, to be expected. But with all that protective gear, it would be like landing on pillows)"

"It was wonderful to see familiar and new faces.  My heart soared with joy feeling the smooth concourse underfoot.  The grins of the crowd said it all.  Don't even think about missing the next one...these events are hard to come by!"

Kim Ensley


"Re-opening the Coliseum puts Portland in the map of "skate-friendly-places".
I wish for every Portlander to come and enjoy the smooth ride. Bravo SK84KIX!!"
