Join Members of San Diego Roller Derby for a "Roller Rally" in Support of Skateworld, the Last Remaining Roller Rink in the City of San Diego

San Diegans continue to rally to save the city’s last remaining roller rink.

San Diego, CA, August 24, 2010 --( They had such a great turn out last time that they're doing it again. Come to the second Support Skateworld Roller Rally. Skateworld, the last remaining roller rink in the City of San Diego, is in danger of losing its lease. The San Diego Redevelopment Agency has an exclusive negotiation agreement with a private development company (M.R.W.) for the property on which Skateworld is located. This company has indicated that they plan to redevelop the property and the future of Skateworld is uncertain.

Show your support by coming to the Support Skateworld Roller Rally on Wednesday, August 25th, 2010 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is $2 and skate rental is free. All ages are welcome. Bring your signs and banners and skate outside the rink during the rally from 6 - 7 pm, then move inside the rink for open skating until 9 pm. Let the City Council know that skating is alive and going strong in San Diego at the city’s only remaining roller rink. “Skateworld is one of the few economical, family-friendly attractions in the area,” said Shannon Albinio. “It provides a safe place for children where they can meet new friends, have fun, and get great exercise at the same time. Childhood obesity continues to be a big problem in today's society. It would be a shame to lose a venue like this where kids don't even realize they are exercising because they are having so much fun.” Skateworld is located at 6907 Linda Vista Rd., San Diego, CA 92111.
