Roller Derby Interest?

I know it's been a while since the last post in this comm, but I didn't know of its existence until just today when a friend clued me in. While I'm a guy, I've really been taken in by the concept of the roller derby universe and think it's rather lame that Madison can have two entire teams, while down here in Shampoo-Banana we can't even organize a single one, and preferably, I'd like to be part of a co-ed league, but could settle for helping organize/manage in some fashion or another.

Now, I'd like to get this ball rolling again. What's the hand count for people watching this comm or just visiting who'd be interested in a) being part of a team and/or b) helping start a team from the ground up and keeping it organized? I'm harassing my friends about this, too.

Of course, I'm not the most knowledgeable about the sport still, but definitely willing to learn whatever I can to help with getting this rolling (two drums and a cymbal...), including how we'd organize and get working with other teams and leagues.

Let me know!

Greetings?

So, this community hasn't seen much traffic in a while. Is this idea dead, or just resting?

I will be in C-U over Thanksgiving weekend, and will probably skate at Savoy while I am there sometime (Saturday afternoon is when I have done that the last few years (I am in C-U every Thanksgiving)). Is there any interest in getting together, meeting, etc?
My best friend's team's first bout - http://www.rollersport.tv/ - she's the Atomic City Roller Girl that blows a kiss to the camera at the very end.

Wendesday Open Skate!

Don't forget Wednesday open skate. 6:30-8:30 at Skateland. I'll be there as will at least one other person. Come out and skate with us!

Skate Lessons?

Hi gang!

So I went skating tonight and talked to Bob some more. He is the owner of Skateland in Savoy. He is super excited to see derby come to CU and willing to help us out.

One thing I asked him about was skate lessons. He doesn't normally do them in the summer, but if a group of us wanted to do it he would set something up. We'd need 4 or 5 people to sign up. I believe he charges $30 for a 4 week course, held on Saturday morning for an hour. And you get to stay for the Saturday open skate for free!

My hope is that since we're all interested in derby they will teach us that style of skating. I'll confirm this with him, but for now, who would be interested in doing something like this? I would love to have enough people to do this as *I* need the lessons! LOL So including me, we only need 3 or 4 more.

Anyone?

Also, I'm going to the Saturday afternoon open skate. Mark your calendars, I'd love to see some of you out there!

Skating!

Anyone up for skating tomorrow? 6:30-8:30 at Skateland. I'll be there by 7:00

I talked to the rink owner and he is really excited about bringing Derby to CU. He knows some ex-speed skaters who would love to be involved.

So let's get skating!
Can we make this happen in CU? meinterrupted has stepped down as maintainer of this group due to lack of time. Hopefully she will be able to join us when life calms down. I am willing to step in as an organizer if there is still interest.

So, step one is still "Learn to skate"
Who is with me?

Ok, skating tomorow?

So I don't seem to have anyone up for skating tonight.

Tomorrow, I'm going for sure as I have at least one person who can make it.

Anyone else want to skate tomorrow?

I'm open as to time. We could do the 1-4 or the 7-11 open skate. If one works better for folks we'll go with that.

Any takers?

C'mon! You know you want to! I suck too, its ok! ;)
