Short and to the point: You don't know what you missed. It was epic!

The girls will be posting pics over at Facebook anytime. 

[ profile] hdsqrl and her hubby were there as well as several others Nick and myself know from faire.  Crowd total was over 550. Thats over 100 people more than the biggest matches last season. 

Dead Girl Derby expands in second season

Epic I tell ya, Epic!

Next match up is March 13th, I will have pre-sale tickets available. $14 at the door or save $2 by buying from me in advance.

And in other news: I rocked my ankle screwing around before we even got started last night. It was fine until this morning. It's sore and tender but no sharp pains. I also have a large knot on my left butt cheek from when I landed on said skate. It's tender too.

Hmmm... I'll actually be up there for Spring Break that night. Might have to see if Brian and Eileen are up for some roller derby action. Would you say it is kid friendly, or not so much?

It's totally kid friendly, with one exception - the place was PACKED, and the only place we could find to sit and still see anything was on the floor in front of the chairs. About halfway through the first game, one of the staff ppl came up and told my two (ages 14 and 17) that no one under the age of 18 was allowed to sit on the floor. I'm sure it's got something to do with insurance, should one of the girls come flying over the barrier we were sitting behind, but still - that left the kids without any options at all, seating-wise. It turns out that my two were totally uninterested in seeing the games anyway, so they went and sat in the hallway area until they finally came back and asked if they could go wait for us in the car. :(

There's nothing at all, content-wise, that's bad for kids to see - it's just a matter of where on earth can you sit so they CAN see. :\

(okay, so I typed this before I read [ profile] hdsqrl response but I'm going to leave it anyway.)

Yes and No. We took Claire and a friend. They didn't understand enough to enjoy it. Plus it was hard because we got settled on the floor behind the bumper only to be told no one under 18 could be there. We happily backed up against the wall--for a short time until they decided no one under 18 could be sitting on the floor. Unfortunately it was oversold and there was NOWHERE for the kids to go where they could see.

Now, that said, a) it was the first bout, b) they're having a meeting as I type this and I know [ profile] pastmagic is bringing this up for discussion so it may very well be a non-issue for the next match.

The general atmosphere was definitely kid-friendly. Only heard questionable language in one of the songs playing (forgot to mention that to [ profile] pastmagic). It's fast-paced and a little tough to follow but a cool thing for them to experience.
