Wheelchair Skating went well last night, 1-19-2021.

We had Bailey, Alana, Abby, Jeremy, and Skyler out skating along with volunteers from the YMSL Pacesetter Chapter.

The weather was perfect and the park was not too busy so we were able to get lots of practice in.

Skyler was out in her loaner chair and moving well throughout the park when she suddenly realized one of her wheels was not securing to the frame of the chair properly so she had to call it a night early. She was her usual positive self and said she would work on fixing it before coming out again next time.

Jeremey was in good form and pushing all over the park with lots of energy. Over the past few skate nights his friendship with the older skaters appears to have grown a lot more as he has seemed to enjoy joking and playing pranks on them more than usual. When it comes down to skating he is still good at showing how things should be done and giving good demonstrations.

Abby was out skating for the first time in a few months and she showed few signs of rustiness. She was willing to give everything a try, she pushed hard and had a smile on her face that we have been missing. Her energy is non stop and she is ready to pick up where she left of from in terms of growing her skills.

Bailey has been practicing her wheelies and she has as good as mastered them when stationary, and she is really good at completing them when moving, she is now working on completing them down steps and ramps. Depending on the steepness of the ramp she is successful independently. When completing steps she is still needing some help but less in comparison to past weeks.

Alana has come on a long way since she started in the sport. Her ability level impresses me each week and she is constantly looking more and more comfortable in her chair. She is really good at completing wheelies of all kinds now. She can independently wheelie down stairs and we are now starting to work on drop ins. Her fearless attitude is great to have and am excited to see how far she can push herself.

Overall wheelchair skating was a success and we are looking forward to out next night out!

Monday had a large group out for a major project that was delayed. Dock held up to 50 mph winds so only minor work. Still moving sand. Two newbies, Don & Mark, plus Randy, Zach, Marlene, Peanut, Old Man, and visitors Randy & Morgan with Albert Pruitt taking photos. Volunteer Work shouldn't be this fun! 1-18-2021 ...
