So I’m just waiting on some pretty bout photos to be uploaded before I do a recap of The Blocker Strikes Back that I played in over the weekend (PS: we totally WON! and it was FREAKIN’ AWESOME!!)… but, by the by… I’m getting coached by Jackie Daniels this coming weekend!!
And by Jackie Daniels, I mean, Windy City Rollers All Star team Captain. Previously of Grand Raggidy Roller Girls and she was also a skater in a little movie called ‘Whip It’ (you *may* of heard of it, yeah? ;)) Jackie is in the country as one of the coaches attending Roller Con Downunder to be held in Caloundra, QLD on NOV 30 – DEC 2nd, 2012.
My super Awesome league (notably Bliss Star who puts a bucket load of effort in to organising things like this for us!) is helping bring Jackie down to run a 2 day bootcamp this weekend. Saturday she will be looking after our 2 senior levels of skaters and on the Sunday she will be focusing on our 2 lower levels. She is flying down with another Roller Con coach, Demanda Riot of B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls (OMG!) and we’ll be taking them both to the VRDL Grand Final which is on the Saturday night.
What with the RDX on the Friday night, a full day bootcamp with Jackie on the Saturday then the double header Grand Final Saturday night… I may need a roller derby detox after this next weekend…
… then again… probably not! 🙂
