Eddy Matzger Workshop
San Diego, CA - April 23-25, 1999
San Diego Street Elite

Dear Prospective San Diego, CA Workshop Member,

What is a WORKSHOP ?
        The "Eddy Matzger Workshop" is an intensely participatory, interactive skating experience. Taught by Eddy himself in small groups over the course of a weekend, the workshop is geared for all ages and abilities, and covers inline skating and racing from A to Z. The workshop is a whooping weekend affair, including over 20 hours of Eddy's personal instruction. Whether you're a new skater or a seasoned racer, Eddy spends quality time with each participant every day. The workshop emphasizes having fun while committing the fundamentals of technique to muscular memory. Hipwork, teamwork, and the principle of least work are some core ideas around which the workshop is structured.

        Workshops are held wherever there are enough skaters to fly Eddy out for instruction. Eddy is coming to San Diego on April 23, 24, 25, 1999 and will be hosted by Sandra Young, Ph: 760-471-9528 or E mail her at, sandra@harborpackaging.com for any local information. The workshop relies on a host for coordination of certain specifics. If you would like to see what's involved with being a host, please ask for a copy of the prospective host letter.

        Cost of a workshop is $175.00 per person. If you belong to a Inline Skate Team and there will be 5 or more members who wish to attend or if there are 3 or more members of your immediate family attending, please contact the workshop. The only other cost is the sharing of Eddy's airfare. All attending the workshop chip in to cover his fare which can run anywhere from $20 to $40 extra per person depending on how many attend.Since this number can vary up to the day of the workshop, I'll have the exact amount on Friday night. If I have a good idea prior to Friday night, I'll either E mail or call you with the estimate.

Support Materials and Sponsor participation:
        Each participant receives a complementary workshop T-shirt designed by Raymond Verdaguer of New York City, a packet with detailed information about the workshop, written notes, articles and diagrams by Eddy. As a added bonus, sponsors such as TWINCAM, SALOMON, EXPLORE WHEELS, WIGWAM SOCKS, POWERBAR and TRANSPACK provide participants with tremendous party favors.

        Thanks again for your interest in attending the Eddy Matzger Workshop. Eddy and I always look forward to meeting new skater friends and catching-up with old ones.
