May the 4th be With You

The first Surly Griffin game of the season is fast approaching. Roller derby is exciting enough, but when CRDL go and come up with THIS poster for bout 2, you know it’s going to be epic.

Don’t believe me? I find your lack of faith disturbing.

You can get tickets here You really should. Seriously stop looking at the awesome poster and go get some tickets before they sell out.




Brindabelters V Red Bellied Black Hearts bout one 2013

Follow the link to the bout write up (by me) for CRDL’s season opener. It was a brilliant game and demonstrated the 2013 home season is set to be the best yet. 

Tickets are on sale now for game 2. It’s May 4th and will be a Star Wars theme bout. Hot tip – wear Griffin green. 


“you are obviously with the Irish tent”



If you have been out and about in Civic anytime this weekend you probably noticed a little Multicultural Festival a-happening. It’s pretty cool, as long as massive crowds of people in various stages of being drunk don’t freak you out. There are ample opportunities to overindulge but with dinner waiting for me at home I was happy to just take in the sights, sounds and smells of this city at its best. People are out, smiling, laughing and dancing. I wish I had taken more photos of the different styles and colours of the festival, but I was preoccupied with derby stuff. 

My amazing league put on a fantastic demo as part of the MultiFRINGE festival. As I was heading back to my car I was mistaken for an Irish lass.

Can’t possibly think why…


I told the guy I was with CRDL. I totally should have spoken with an accent. In fact I could have replied ‘to be sure to be sure to be sure’ THAT would have been tops!  I’m not sure what urgent matter he had to take up with the Irish, but I gave him a flyer and we spoke about the woman in his office who wants to skate. 

Are you partaking in the festival this weekend? What was your highlight?
