SKATING magazine Archive launched To commemorate the 90th anniversary of SKATING magazine, U.S. Figure Skating has

launched the SKATING magazine Archive, a fully searchable digital database that allows users to access every story and photo published in the magazine since the inaugural December 1923 edition. SKATING magazine Archive is free to U.S. Figure Skating members and SKATING subscrib-

ers through the “Members Only” site at www.usfi The Archive allows users to read text-only versions or view pages as they originally appeared in the magazine. Articles may be downloaded as PDFs and printed to share or display, and photos have been arranged in galleries associated with their original story. “The SKATING magazine Archive is a tremendous asset for our membership,” U.S. Figure

Skating Executive Director David Raith said. “From personal searches of tests passed to the greatest moments in our sport, the Archive provides access to U.S. Figure Skating’s history like never before.” The Pioneer Fund, a private family foundation of the late Helen M. McLoraine, provided

a grant to underwrite the SKATING magazine Archive project. The Pioneer Fund, established in 1960, has supported the sport of fi gure skating for many years through several scholarship programs and by providing grants for special projects. “Because of the continued patronage of The Pioneer Fund, our members now have U.S.

Figure Skating’s storied history at their fi ngertips,” Raith said. Wisconsin-based Quad/Graphics, which prints SKATING magazine and previously devel-

oped the U.S. Figure Skating Publication Application for mobile devices, began building the SKATING magazine Archive during the summer of 2012. “We are proud of our relationship with U.S. Figure Skating,” Michael Bloomfi eld, Quad/

Graphics Vice President Sales, Media Solutions, said. “The organization is dedicated to serving its membership with unique and visionary projects. The SKATING magazine Archive is the next big step, unlocking more than 40,000 pages of the sport’s history and making it available to future generations of skaters and fans.”


Red Sox honor Haydenettes The Boston Red Sox saluted the 21-time

U.S. champion Haydenettes at Fenway Park on May 9. Daylong downpours lifted in time for the ceremony before the game against the Minnesota Twins. The team was brought out onto the fi eld and lined up while the an- nouncer detailed the many accomplishments of the Lexington, Mass., dynasty, most recent- ly their fourth World bronze medal. “It was raining, but we were all so excited

it didn’t matter,” team member River Kynoch said. “It was so cool to be able to stand on the fi eld. People in the audience were talking to us and asking about being on Team USA. The [Red Sox mascot] Green Monster came and stood next to us.” “I’ve never got-

ten to go out on the fi eld even though I’ve lived in Boston my whole life,” team member Kelly Ot- taviano said. “It was amazing.” A video screen

showed clips of the team’s free skate

from the World Championships in Boston. “It was really cool, because the whole

audience got to see what synchronized skat- ing was all about,” Ottaviano said. After the ceremony, the Haydenettes

sat together to watch the game; the Sox lost 5 to 3.

“Unfortunately they didn’t win, but it

was still intense and thrilling,” Ottaviano said. — Sarah S. Brannen

Members of the Haydenettes receive the thrill of a lifetime as they stand on the fi eld at Fenway Park in Boston.
