Ryan Jahnke, the founder of MySkatingMall, contacted me a couple of days about an exciting project they are starting.  Here is a quote:

"I have started a new project for the skating community through MySkatingMall.com and I am hoping for your help!  When finished, it will be something we can all use to get more people to skate. We are putting together a video called "What's so great about figure skating?" and we are looking for skaters, parents, and fans to take short videos of each other answering the question, "What's so great about figure skating?".

This video will serve as a great encouragement to skaters and parents as well as telling potential new skaters what is so great about our sport! A short introductory video as well as directions for uploading videos to the MySkatingMall.com YouTube channel can be found at www.myskatingmallDOTcom/skating (replace DOT with a period.) Everyone who submits a video will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift certificate for any item on MySkatingMall.com or from our Partner Stores. Videos will be accepted until 12/31/10."


This sounds like a great project and fun to do.  Just grab your cellphone or Flip camera and ask some of your fellow skaters if they would like to tell why they like skating on video.  Since it seems everyone is making YouTube videos of themselves, they should love doing this.

Oops, we messed up! Our original directions for participating in the “What’s so great about figure skating?” Video were not very clear. A special “Thank you” to the couple people who brought this to our attention. The directions for uploading videos to the MySkatingMall.com YouTube page have recently been updated at www.myskatingmall.com/skating . They now include pictures of where to click in order to upload videos . Because of the poor directions,


we will now be accepting videos until Jan 31!
