Hey fellow derby lovers.I just found this comm and got a wee bit excited.
My name is Trish, derby name is HorrorBelle. I live in townsville and am the Presi of the Towns Villains Roller Derby League. I am currently not playing though as I broke my ankle in Oct 09 :( Still recovering but hope to be back on skates again soon.
Primarily I love to be a blocker, not fast or fit enough yet to be a jammer but I'm working on it.
ummm that is all I guess.
Look foreward to talking derby with you all!!!!

i've been looking at derby from afar and i think i am going to take the step up and give it a go.
I'm really lucky i actually live with a derby girl, so through her i think i am going to take my first baby steps into derby.

i was just wondering about info about gear, general expense etc. anyone who can inform and lay down some crazy knowledge would be great. plus any derby reference stuff.

i make zines so if anyone knows about derby zines too that would be fab.

cheers ladies
p.s. how awesome are derby names? when do you get to choose one.. god i'm a nerd..

Derby Promos and such
Howdy there! Highlander of Newcastle Roller Derby League here...

The thing is, I have been suckered into heading up the promotions and fundraiser committee, and I have no idea what to do! Completely lost.

I had a word with our secretary today and she said I have been doing okay so far, looking into costs for such things as badges, stickers and fliers, thinking about simple merchandise and welcome packs... So I do feel a tad better.

I would like to know what has worked for your league/team? Are you on a promo/fundraiser committee and if so what do you do on that committee? If not what do you expect of your promo people? What do they do for your team/league?

Sydney Derby
Hi guys,

Just found you guys the other day so a huge hello :)

I've been looking at trying to get into a team in Sydney or start one up, however I am having a few troubles finding interested girls - or so it seems.

ARDA pointed me towards the Sydney Derby Dolls League myspace, however haven't heard anything back from then in ages so have no idea what is going on there.

Also wanted to ask, am in the market for skates and having some issues finding the non-boot variety. Any pointers? What's better? What works? Are there any good deals anywhere (since I'm a broke student!)

Current Mood: busy

Don't be shy!
Ok girls, don't be shy about posting. Breathe some life into this new community!

Post about events in your area, or link to other websites for derby teams or associations. Also, link to your favourite websites for equipment, especially skates, and talk about what skates you like and don't like etc.

Roller Derby on Rove Live!
Except it won't exactly be live ...

Filming for the segment will be this Sunday evening at Sportsmotion Skate Arena. Hamish (of Hamish & Andy) will be appearing to film (and take part in) the segment which will go to air on the first episode of Rove Live for the year - Sunday 1st April 8:30pm.
The girls of the Australian Roller Derby Association will be having a demonstration bout - Hospital Honies versus Deadly Doses. We want as many people there as possible to cheer the girls on and really launch the sport to a nationwide television audience!

So, the details ...

Sportsmotion Skate Arena
Centenary Rd, Slacks Creek (off Nujooloo Rd)
Sunday 25th March

**EDIT** Apparently Hamish has been double-booked this weekend so filming has been postponed for approximately 6 weeks. Too bad, so sad! Stay tuned, roller babes!
