Roxy Rockett

Vacation

Sorry for not posting in awhile, family comes first sometimes. I took a ‘derby break’ and I still have a couple of days until I dive back into this here sport!

Some of our girls are heading North to Charm City (Baltimore) this weekend to bout these WFTDA newbies. We sent a few girls that have never interleague’d before in hopes to get them up to speed with our seasoned grannies! I know they will make us proud!

Going to be doing some derby training this weekend with the Atlanta Rollergirls. We will be on the rink 2 days/4 hours. I think this should be enough time.
I remember these girls coming up for our first public bout in 2005 (side note: a year after our league formed; and holding 2 private expo bouts) and having some of them sit in on a team meeting/dinner the night before our ‘coming out bout’. They have been great friends of ours during the past 2 years! I feel really honored that they asked me to come and teach the important skills that make up the foundation of skating and derby. They can take and leave whatever they see fit. I will try and have some feedback from them so everyone can get an idea of what I do on private training weekends.

In the midst of all this derby crap, I’m getting married in September and I have been frantically searching for bridesmaid dresses. I have found my dress, I just have to find the right color of wheels for my skates and what type of socks (if any) to match my dress. Not to mention a venue and all that crap. Perhaps I’ll write some posts on how to plan a wedding and do derby at the same time. Better yet, perhaps some of you can chime in and help my sorry ass out!!

I hope everyone had a great New Year and I hope to be spying on you West coast bitches at Dust Devil II (if I can muster up enough money for a plane ticket).

Thanks for reading!
Roxy
