Reminder: upcoming skating workshops in NC

These were both announced a few months ago, but for those that don't know -- we have two skating workshops that are coming up soon.

The first workshop is in Raleigh, on March 29th...  I'm actually teaching this one.  Information about it can be found at:


Basically, I'm doing this as a fundraiser for MS Society.  I taught two workshops last year, and they went pretty well.  (Anyone that attended, please feel free to post any comments...)  Inline and quad skaters are welcome, although there may be one or two drills that are specific to inline skating.  Don't worry though -- I'll point out the differences between inline and quad technique.

The second workshop is just 3 weeks later, April 18-20.  That workshop is being taught in Greensboro by the one and only Eddy Matzger.  If you've never attended one of his workshops, you don't know what you're missing!  Eddy is a phenomenal instructor and one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.  I'll be there, and you should be too...


If you can only attend one workshop, I'd definitely recommend Eddy's.  If you can attend two workshops, then mine will be a great introduction to many of the things Eddy will be teaching. 

Hope to see you all there!

would love to make the workshop but just can't

Unfortunately that's my dtr's b-day party,  looks like an all day affair and I hate to miss your workshop - could use the tips and meet the area skaters...I went to Umstead and Blue Jay Point today to scope 'em out but didn't look to promising.....MikeB

Any new Skatey-Mark workshop dates announced??

Turns out the 3/29 and 3/30 weather was terrible. Any new dates on the horizon?

Kudos to Skatey-Mark Regardless

Thanks, Mark, for all you do for skating and for the Tour to Tanglewood for MS. Hopefully warmer but not too warm days are ahead and there's still tons of time to get ready for T2T and A2A. Don't give up on SkateStrong, Mark, and everyone else, this is another great chance to focus on skating for a whole day with someone else watching and advising. Thanks again, Mark.

YES - there will be a SkateStrong workshop

I am trying to determine which weekend will work best for the rescheduled workshop... At this point, it doesn't make any sense to have it before Eddy's workshop, so it will be some time after that.


All my weekends in April & May are basically booked now. I'm thinking either June 7th or June 14th would be the most convenient for me. That's 7 (or 8) weeks after the Eddy workshop, so it might be a good time for a refresher since people will have had plenty of practice time by then.


I'll make an official announcement soon... If anyone has thoughts on why one weekend may be better than another, please let me know!
