knitdevil reminded me that I haven't filled you all in on the AWESOMENESS (it's a word, prove it ain't) of roller derby.
The photos were not great, too fast and lighting too low for my little point-and-shoot camera, but you get the idea.
The black-and-white's are the Ref's, the pinks were one of the teams.
My two favourite skaters?
Betty Bambalam and Cherry Rockette.
and another good thing? Beers, in a can, unopened, three-fifty. Doesn't get better than that outside of an RSL or bowling club, these days!
Next round in November 8 "Queen of the Slammed", with Dead Ringer Rosies vs Toxic Avengers - check out Roller Derby Victoria for details, and all the info on the next Fresh Meat intake.
and let me know if you're coming!
