Red White and Bruise RollersIn 2014 and Ely we snapped a Red White and Bruise Rollers scrimmage with Suffolk RD and we're pretty certain we snapped a RWB skater with a mixed league team in Bletchley.  Like the Seaside Sirens very regrettably RWB are pulling up their track tape for the last time.  As a league that pretty much could only draw on military and their families at RAF Lakenheath it was likely to struggle.  The brilliant bit is they are giving away their t-shirts for just the postage.  Ours arrived this morning and it fits!

Rehearsal of The Little Mermaid on off ice skatesThe skaters at the rehearsal of The Little Mermaid in the Tommy Mills Framlingham's sports hall today were wearing off ice skates, they look like inline skates but the four wheels are mounted in a curve so only two wheels touch the floor making spins and turns easier.  At the rehearsals nobody fell ... more here

Dolly Rockits 225-063 Killa HurtzLast Sunday we asked a Killa Hurtz coach if there would be a skateout for their bout with hosts the Leicester Dolly Rockits, Don't know she said But everyone hates skateouts ... so just us then.  It seemed a fairly even bout but then we stepped out to see the score and the Rockits were easily pulling away so don't trust us on anything.  A comfortable 225-063 Rockits win despite early on losing a skater with an ankle injury, it's always ankles.

The Dolly Rockits are full WFTDA members and two Rockits told us the league wouldn't be competing in the British Championships next year as they want to concentrate on tournaments.

Jem 143-195 Sindy (mixed rookies bout)When we arrived at Loughborough Leisure Centre this afternoon it was pouring with rain and the car park completely full, we had to circle until a leaver made a space but the Leicester Dolly Rockits were very welcoming.  The mixed league support bout of rookies and second bouters was very impressive; Bambi jumped the apex, there was organised blocker offence on a power jam and a pivot shouting To me! To me! when play had broken down (she's officer material).  Very good stuff indeed.

Norfolk Brawd Grimbolina at the Seaside SirensVery regrettably Southend's Seaside Sirens have pulled up their track tape for the last time.  Back in the days before roller derby got a bit up itself they produced some enjoyably witty skate outs and we snapped what was their and the Norfolk Brawds' first public bout.  Some good has come from it as the Sirens have donated £1,000 of their remaining funds to GB Junior Derby.

Swiss national road race champion Nicole Hanselmann In the manner of a roller derby programme that so relentlessly refuses to identify mixed league team skaters' home league the Women's Tour web site fails to identify national champions and the web generally is surprisingly reticent ... and what's more nowhere like the predicted 5,000 in Framlingham yesterday.  But still the riders tended to be friendly if ... more here

Norfolk Brawds 193-207 Rebellion Roller DerbyNo skate outs (when the skaters are introduced to the spectators) at Sunday's Norfolk Brawds' hosted British Championship bout in Norwich.  Skate outs are a rewarding photo op and heightens the pleasurable anticipation before play starts and may have helped our bemusement before we found out the Savage Lilies are Wirral RD's B team (get a programme and read it).  Committed roller derby from all four teams and well choreographed offence from a Rebellion Roller Derby packed with new to us faces.
