SKINNY MINNIE - GWEN MILLER / by Molly Schiot

Gwen's skating talent and agility along with her longtime loyalty to the T-Birds endeared her to the fans. She was the unofficial Queen of RollerGames during this period. The very special connection that Skinny Minnie had with the fans was often overlooked and underplayed by management as the team began to focus attention on "model type" women skaters whose ability was often in question. Throughout the 1970's, Roller Games was the only league operating and kept banked track skating alive.
