Looky here, I found some buried treasure! My ticket stubs from Skate America 1995! Detroit was the host city for Skate America three times in the 1990s, and I was there all three times.
Detroit is also the host city for Skate America 1986 in my upcoming novel Red Flags. I’m not sure where it was held in real life that year. When I write skating fiction, competitions happen wherever the plot calls for it. I take many artistic liberties on that front.
