Watch the Faster Pussycats take on the Bad Reputations (for reals this time)

Right, second time lucky... After the schedule change to the last roller derby meetup I tried to organise, I thought I'd have another go and try to catch one of the saturday morning pre-season bouts. 

For anyone whos not heard of it, Roller Derby is a faced-paced, sometimes brutal, but always good-natured sport, played on roller skates. Its one of the fastest growing sports on the planet and uniquely North American, with an inclusive, welcoming atmosphere and a DIY way of doing things. Its like an alternate universe where sports are the preserve of the geeks and weirdos instead of the jocks. Check out the 2009 Ellen Page film ‘Whip It’ which is a pretty good intro to derby. 

 I’ve got some friends who skate back in the UK, and going to see their bouts has turned me into a bit of a fanboy. Hopefully some of you’ll find it fun too. Might turn this into a regular trip this season if anyone else gets the bug. 

Tickets are $5 on the door. Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/226559297530867/?source=1

< I'll try to keep an eye on this to see if they move it again, but if anyone notices any updates, could they let the group know?

    Ok, how about we all meet at the Starbucks off King George Blvd (map: http://postimg.org/image/xu8y53iz5/ ) at around 10, then walk up to the arena (about 5 minutes away). I'll send my number round to everyone whos RSVP'd as well. Ivy, yeah, not sure what everyone fancies doing afterwards, but I'll never say no to a good Mexican place recommendation :) Thanks.

      Hey Ivy. Forgot to say, thanks for the recommendation. The food in that place was excellent.

    I was going to go to this and suggest that we go to the best Mexican restaurant in Surrey after the derby, located close to the rink but unfortunately I can't go anymore but if you guys want the address to go eat there and hang out after i'll let you know where it is.
