Derby Night In Canada

Last night four teammates and I went to Saskatoon to play in the rookie scrimmage.  It was so much fun!!  We played the Saskatoon Roller Derby rookie team, the Rockettes.  It was a great game, wonderful experience and I learned a lot.

I have more photos that I will post/link to later.  We had an incredibly busy week.  Yesterday we had another street fair booth that we attended from 8:30 until we had to leave to drive to Saskatoon at 2:45.  We had to be at the venue at 4, equipment check at 5, then the whistle  blow at 5:30.  We stayed after to watch the “main event” bout, which was also incredibly good!

Tomorrow we have a float in the local exhibition parade.  We will skate alongside.  The weather looks good for tomorrow, no rain storms!

  1. Roller Derby looks such fun! We dont really have it over here in the UK, in fact I dont think we have any! I love the idea of speeding round the track and scoring points! 🙂

    • Actually, there are quite a few leagues in the UK! If there’s one near you, you should go check it out! It’s also an amazing spectator sport.

  2. I just recently discovered there is a roller derby league here (Dieppe, NB). I was checking out their web site and laughing at their names. I didn’t realize when you were picking your name out that there was a list of names so you didn’t use someone else’s.
