Hiya! Thanks for adding me.

My name is Sarah and I'm hoping to join you guys (as an absolute beginner, sorry :cry: ) in October. My only skating knowledge comes from a former colleague who skates for the Liverpool Rollerbirds and Youtube videos :p I'm sure I'll learn quickly!

I'm just now looking at buying all of my gear and have no clue what to look for particularly for skates. Any advice would be a big help! Does the helmet need to be of a specific material? So much choice!

Thanks again. Can't wait to meet everyone! :D

Hi Sarah - welcome!!

Here's a good thread with loads of kit advice: http://arrg.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=970

Also try Facebook groups for second hand gear. There's always stuff people are selling when they upgrade their kit.

Excited to meet you and all the new fresh meat in October!

Hey Sarah - welcome!

The facebook group I'd recommend is UK Roller Derby recyclables.

If you're buying some stuff new, check out 5th blocker in Glasgow: www.5thblockerskates.co.uk

Also, we've got a bunch of home season games coming up, first one next Saturday 26 September. Volunteering at the games is a great way to meet everyone (and you get free entry). Let me know if you're interested - we've still got a few places going :)

Looking forward to meeting you!

Thanks for the info! Going to have a nice evening eating chocolate and browsing gear (actually super excited).

Noooo! I'm working on Saturday sadly. It's overtime too so I could have been free but it's too late to change it now. Gutted. Unless it's after 5pm which I'm sure isn't likely :(

I'd definitely be up for helping out in the future. I'll be less charitable with my days off from now on ;)
