Mixed Scrimmage Filmed by National TVFebruary 6th, 2012 by TnTina
We’ve had another great mixed scrimmage last Saturday – a huge THANK YOU to all refs, NSOs and derby girls that travelled to Amsterdam despite the adverse weather conditions.
We had some special guests present, too. A BNN film crew was filming an item for the Dutch national television programme ‘De Week van Filemon’. The host of the show, Filemon Wesselink, watched us scrimmage while the game was explained to him. After our own Dirty Job and Furrrocious gave him a crash-course on the basic skills, he even joined us on the track for a couple of jams. We were impressed with his courage to participate and to take some hits in his very first few laps as a jammer. He did well, and we cannot wait for it to be broadcast. Obviously, we will announce it as soon as we have been notified.
For those anxious to see some Roller Derby action on telly, please tune in to RTL5 on Wednesday 8 February 20.30 to watch Whip It!
