First of all, we would like to thank everybody for showing up last Sunday to make our Friends & Family Day a great success!
The day started off with a demo by our Fresh Meat. They showed the audience what they have been working on in the past weeks. This batch of new skaters certainly has some talent to watch out for!
Many league members spent the Saturday before baking to present some wonderful pieces of art at the bake sale, and that definitely didn’t go unnoticed: loads of people managed to find their way to the bar upstairs where the cakes were sold for the good cause.
To earn money for the league as well, we sold some of our clothes, organised a raffle and walked around with a box for donations, which many visitors put coins in. We even got a few notes! Thank you so much for your generosity, it will be spent wisely. In return, we tried to present to you a nice day. We hope everybody enjoyed it as much as we did, and if you are new to this sport, we hope we have given you a good impression of what roller derby is all about.
Thumbs up to those of you brave enough to put on some skates at the mini-roller disco. You never know, we might welcome you as a fresh meat skater, referee or non-skating official (NSO) one day.
A very special thanks goes out to Branko Collin our photographer, Bureau Feestbeest: the official derby DJs, 123Zeefdruk, Sharon Feigal, Just Like Your Mom Tour Support and Korsakoff for their sponsorship.
