Finally Made it on to the Track



Well after 15 months of training, I finally made it on to team and we played a game.  I had a very inauspicious start being ejected from the stadium after only being on the track for less than two minutes.

This weekend was different.  I passed the practical test for being a referee and I stayed on track for a full game.  For those who don't know Roller Derby, it is a game on roller skates where one member of your team tries to get past the players of the other team - with the other team doing exactly the same thing.  It is game where both offense and defense are played at the same time.

All the people who gained Intermediate or above since the last Christmas game were invited to make up the two teams.  Each team also had two experienced skaters to provide advice.  Team White played Team Black.

After the game we had the team photo which included Team Zebra!

What did ya do to get ejected, Bob?

I fell over at the front of the pack and instead of waiting for all the other skaters to pass, I stood up again.  It was deemed to be "eggressious blocking when out of bounds"
