For those of you I have frothed about Roller Derby to:

The Rainy City Roller Girls have an intra-league bout this weekend, in Bury.

This is a good way to start watching the sport - the Rainys are a relatively new league, and some of the girls bouting this weekend will be doing so for the first time - which keeps the overall speed of the pack down and makes it easier to watch. That said - they won their last bout, and have been doing very well against other leagues recently. Some of their key players were recently seen at the training camp run by the Texas Hustlers (the godmothers of roller derby), and are sure to have picked up some very interesting new things.

[ profile] ephrael, [ profile] freddiefraggles and Dave (WINOLJ) will also be there - and will be happy to sit with you and explain what's going on, it's a very simple sport to get the basics of.

Oh, and it's got a pirate theme.

See you there?

I'd really love to go, but due to uni, I wouldn't get to Bury until well after the bout was over (even with the early finish). Damn shame, but I'd definitely be interested another time.
