Big Apple Roll が８月２４日から２６日に開催されましたが、指定ホテルの SKYLINE HOTEL で参加者に配布する為のＴシャツ１５０枚余りが盗難にあったそうで、ネットで捜索願が出されています。それでもイベントは無事終了したようで、写真・ビデオがアップされています。今年のニューヨークは異常に寒かったりして、ちょっと気候が変です。まー、それは日本も同様ですが・・・。
T-shirts Go Missing at Big Apple Roll
T-shirts emblazoned with Lady Liberty on skates apparently looked pretty good to thieves in New York City on Sunday.
They helped themselves to more than 150 of them. The T-shirts were the property of the Empire Skate Club, which organized the weekend's Big Apple Roll.
Organizers had hoped to sell the T-shirts to defray the cost of putting on the annual weekend skate party, which was free of charge this year. But during one of the group skates, someone stole several boxes of medium, large and extra large T-shirts.
Organizers had left the T-shirts at the concierge area of the Skyline Hotel, which was headquarters for the Big Apple Roll. Empire Skate president Rob Henkle estimated the loss at more than $1000. So far, authorities have no suspects.
Henkle asks skaters to keep their eyes open at events and online for the missing tees. They won't be hard to spot: just look for the Empire Skate web address (www.empireskate.org) and Lady Liberty (as in Statue of Liberty) going for a roll.
