Rollercon will be interesting this year (well, it always is)l
I will be heading a seminar on ways to make your league more profitable and of course require help from those who have and those who haven’t.
And there are those who are trying to differentiate the way the game is played.
USARS has announced a national tournament, with regionals and a championship.
Donna “the hotflash” Kay is proceeding with her one world Derby in Seattle area, after having successful breast cancer surgery.
Great Lakes Roller Derby has been started with a very interesting concept: form a state-wide league with the teams competing against each other on a regular basis, with standings, rivalries and all the benefits of league play. you can join if you want.
And there are big doings with battles on the bank (“we don’t want banked track” oh yeah?).
And something is going on in Mobile.
And MADE and MRDA are expanding their worlds.
And of course WFTDA is adding leagues around the world, and everyone is getting excited about the regionals.
Derby Lite is gaining ground for recreational Roller Derby.
I had always assumed that the game and those within it would seek its own level depending upon what the players want. Obviously, this is upsetting to those who feel there should be one set of rules, one game, and one way of doing it.
Don’t forget, this is a do it yourself enterprise. And frankly, I don’t care how they do it as long as it is Roller Derby and those playing it and watching it are satisfied.
