There is some Roller Derby coming up over the next two weekends - in fact there's quite a lot coming up as it's now the right season for it all, but I have a stake in two bouts over the next few weeks.

Firstly: tomorrow (Sat 15 May) - London Rockin' Rollers vs the Manchester Motley Crew (the travel team of the Rainy City Roller Girls), at York Hall, Bethnal Green. Tickets from the LRR website, or if you are lucky, on the door. RCRG are my local team, and this bout against LRR should be very well matched for some excellent Derby action.

Secondly: Next Saturday (Sat 22 May) - London Roller Girls intra-league bout, The Steam Rollers vs The SuffraJets - The LRG are a phenomenal team, the winners of last years European tournament, and have just been to the USA on tour - they're now all back safely (despite the best efforts of a Volcano), and this is a chance to see them at their most competitive - against themselves! Tickets are available on the website, and are VERY likely to sell out so book now!

I'll be at both of them - as an NSO (non-skating-official) for the LRR/RCRG bout, and watching (and helping with the PA) with [ profile] freddiefraggles, who's celebrating her birthday that weekend as well.

There's plenty more Derby coming up as well, The Rainys have just confirmed their bout dates for the rest of the year, and there's plenty of them.

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?
