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?

I'm still with ya! I can't go skating this week. I'm busy tonight and I'll be out of town this weekend. I did really well last week though and considering it had been almost 10 years since I'd been on skates, not hanging on to the wall and being able to avoid any accidents is a big plus.

I'm still interested, I just don't have mch time with 2 kids and other commitments already in my life. Besides, I have the "learn to skate" thing pretty well down since I've been skating since I was 6.

UIUC soon to be derby land?
I just applied to grad school at UIUC, rad program,
but was looking around to find out if there was a derby league anywhere near.I found a lot about windy city. They're great. I saw them in Nationals, but that's a long drive!

I play here in Eugene, OR and wanna keep doing skating and playing. I found this site (Live Journal) where you people posted who were
interested in starting a league in Central Illinois?

What's the stat on roller derby in or near Champaign-Urbana?

Re: UIUC soon to be derby land?
An early welcome to you. The CU derby never really got off the ground. We had some interest but no one really stepped up with the knowledge to spearhead it. I had hoped to be an organizer but I just don't have the time to give it what it would really need to thrive.

Bloomington IN and Indianapolis IN also have derby leagues. Both also about 2 hours from here. I don't know of any closer than that.

Good luck in with your studies!
