I created a Facebook group called 80's Skaties. My friend and I loved skating when we were young and started back up again. We wanted to meet with other people interested in skating on a Friday night where we could have free family fun.
The polished concrete runway next to the big park at Speers Point is the perfect spot. Its open to all wheels - scooters, skateboards etc and is wheelchair friendly.
We listen to 80 s music on a music box and skate from between 7pm and 9.30 pm every Friday night. Some of us have light up wheels so its fun for the children as well. We started with 2 members and now have over 900.
