In 2011, We will be celebrating 32 years of skating in Golden Gate Park. Here you will find a collection of the newspaper and magazine articles that our group has accumulated over the years.  We began with the mainstream press. There are a few gaps, but this is going to be under construction for quite a while as we gather more information.
