Also in attendance: non-skater retiree Joel Jackson, 72, who designed the skate bowl in the 1970s while working as an urban planner at Tampa City Hall. In an email, Jackson said skaters “wanted to have one last go at it.” “I was seriously moved to hear so many express how much bowl meant to them,” he said.
