Jim started skating in college, McKenzie was 13, and Karen was 52. Some of us (Karen) are really bad
and others are OK, but we're all pretty low level as these things go. However, it's a wonderful
hobby, a great way to stay more-or-less fit, and a lot of fun.

We weren't in it, but many people we know skated in the 2005 show.
