When Morley Rollerdrome started, proficiency tests did not exist, so the rink started its own - called "Achievement Tests", which they felt expressed better what the skaters were achieving.

The girl in rhe pink skirt at the front is Melissa Jetten, who went on to skate dance at gold level, then moved to inline hockey at world level, then to ice hockey at national level.


Showskates for the public were an early feature - notice the audience seated on the rink floor, at the right. The space around the outside of the rink wasn't enough.

Believe it or not, the girl in the centre is Melissa George, the first time WA hosted the artistic national championships.
