    I skated for the first time at Palisade Gardens in 1956 at the beginning of 7th grade. When I went home I told my Mom about a style of skating called rexing and I just had to learn how to do it! I learned from other rexers who were kind enough to teach me. Someone mentioned the organist. His name was Hal Peterson and he was the best. Some of the people skating at that time were Dick Jones, Johnny Mac, Dennis and Don Boyle, Bob Berry, Dick Woods, Suzie Wright, Delma and Larry Parrott, Lynn and Becky Slayton, Lonora McFarland, the Sawyer brothers, Kenny Baetz, LIL Jeff McKiernan to name some of the old group. At that time my name was Bonnie Robinson and now it’s Baetz. Kenny and I were married in 1984 and Johnny Wright gave me away. I would love to re-connect with Suzie Wright. I lost track of her so would need help with that. It was a wonderful time to grow up in San Diego and the rink was where I was every Friday and Saturday night skating with my friends.
