The early days of the rink (1908-1934) there was a lot of ice skaing and professional hockey.
Once the ice was gone there was no looking back as roller skating became the thing to do.
Andre Atkinson takes over from Bob Beach and does a great job changing the look and the feel of the rink.
Bob Beach returns to help Andre save the rink and the name changes again.
The first and longest lasting rink of the Saints chain.
Not a Saints very long this rink located on McPhillips soon became a franchise rink called Wheelies
Located on Regent in Winnipegs East side was a great rink to skate at.
Built last and closed first, Saints Portage was a victim of high rent and the decline of the trend of roller skating.
Wheelies was a great rink to skate and work at. Lots of great memories there.
Still rolling today Wheelies is not like it used to be but it's still a great place to skate.
