Roller Derby Overview


Last weekend we attended the local roller derby team’s first home bout.  It was a great opportunity for me to see the rules of play in action, since I had seen and read about the game, but not seen it live.  Before the bout began the announcer and teams ran through a demo ‘jam’ to show spectators what the game is about.  I got it on film, with my shaky camera hand and all.  A better video is the one that was put together by a local website, Tahoeticker.  They had music and interviewed Sister Slayer, the president of the team.   It’s a good group of women who have really welcomed this (tattoo-less) noob, and I’m looking forward to actually playing a bout sometime soon.
