Are you enjoying reading Skate Guard? Would like to contribute to the blog's efforts to preserve, study and document figure skating history? Although financial donations have never and will never be solicited, there are two ways in which you can donate towards the blog's efforts.
Do you have old skating magazines, scrapbooks, show or competition programs, video tapes, photographs or books sitting around in a box in your attic? I'd be happy to take them off your hands. If you'd prefer to keep the original primary sources, I'd also be appreciative of digital scans of these items as they can be valuable research materials.
An obvious challenge when researching skating history is translation of materials. If you speak a language other than English and would be willing to donate your time to translate some lengthy documents of historical interest, I'd love to hear from you!
If you feel that you can assist in either of these ways, feel free to contact me to discuss how you can help.
