Ahoy!

Post by Sarah Leonie » Sun Sep 12, 2010 8:06 pm

AHOY THERE! My names SarahLeone,

I just saw the Dundee Destroyers vs Granite City in the Jurassic Skate park!!!
IT WAS INCREDIBLE! My first ever live derby bout and I am officially in Love.

My cousin Unprotected Bex took me along to one of the DDs training sessions and I had an absolute blast! Loved the atmosphere, loved the encouragement of individuality (which is refreshing coming from the dance world!!), and got such a rush from skating!

Im originally a Londoner but am currently at Edinburgh University and would LOVE to be part of the AARG team!!! So am definately planning to be at the next Fresh Meat in October!

Im so excited to practice in my new skates...anyone got any ideas about reasonably flat skating grounds other than the meadows??

Cant wait to get my teeth into this insane world!

Any advice very welcome!

Cheers ARRG! :D :heart:

Hi Sarah,



Your friend Bex has a great Derby name :lol: If you check through the forum there is a thread about skating at Crammond on a Monday night. I.P Freely organised it- weather dependant. I haven't been as I don't have outdoor wheels but it's a good place to practice.

Good luck at Fresh Meat in October :gbanana:

Hi,
There is a waiting list for Fresh Meat - have you sent a message to everyone@newskaters.arrg.co.uk? You got your own skates? If not, just send us your shoe size and we'll let you know what to do next!
Awesome :gbanana:

edit: just re-read your post and see you said you have your own skates. Ace. Still, send an email so we can make sure we've got a buddy for you and can send you all the info!
Ref and Roll!

i love it when someone wants to join because the bout was so fun! and you already have derby connections!! if you live near a carpark that could be a quite good place to practice. wear protection though!!
