Roller Derby action

At the rollerskating rink for one of Jesiah's reading outings, I met some Roller Derby chicks. They informed me that there are bouts all over Melbourne so we decided we should go check it out.  It was a bit like hockey without the puck and stick and on skates; well, or maybe more like swimming just not in the water and with lots of physical interaction; or maybe more like football but with hilarious nicknames on the helmets...  So obviously, it was awesome.  Our friends Hannah and Emiline came with another of their friends.  If the leagues weren't done for the season, we would definitely go to another bout!
