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.


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

I wish I could but I work on Saturday mornings. There's no way in hell they'd let me take off 4 Saturdays for lessons.

Stupid broken toe...
My toe's still gotta heal for a while for sure (I'm going to the podiatrist today) but I'm going to do my darnedest to stay in good shape and even get in better shape (as soon as I'm told I'm allowed to swim this will happen) so that I will have all the muscles ready for skating right away. Provided nothing goes wrong I should be able to skate again by August 15 (long time from now, I know).

In other news I'm so bummed about the toe keeping me from doing that triathlon next week. The odds of it working out seem like they're about zero. I'd need a miracle.

Re: Stupid broken toe...
Do what your Dr tells you so you will be 100%. Better to take the time to heal now than reinjure yourself later!

And like you said, you're already a pretty good skater. I need time to catch up! ;)
We can see about holding the skate class after you're back on wheels if you want to join.

Urbana Derby

I'm interested in joining/starting a derby here in Champaign/Urbana and after spending the majority of my afternoon on google trying to track down any existing teams/leagues, the only lead I had was this LJ group (I started an account only to leave you this message.)

If you could send me an email passing along any information, I would greatly appreciate it!
