Say,I was wondering if we have any record in history to what happened to the Origanal Members of the Broadmoor Skating Club as well as what the Roster looked like by skater name and Discipline (before the 1961 Nationals). We know some of them died in the Plane Crash. But since not all Skaters from a Club qualify for Competition. There had to be some Members that didn't go to Nationals. Were would THEY be now? Also,do anyone have a link to the Origanal Roster of Skaters that belong to that club? By name and Discipline.

There's a wealth of information, including results for all members who medaled in qualifying competitions, in this book published by the Broadmoor World Arena:

"The Broadmoor World Arena, Pictorial History Book 1938-1988"
(c) 1988
Broadmoor World Arena

To obtain a copy, contact:

I bought a copy at the Broadmoor Open competition, which is held every 3rd week of June. I think it cost around $12.
