Origin of derby name:
Is it Devil Spawn or Devil’s Pawn? Doesn’t matter, the Devil made me do it!
Sweaty hugs from all of the boys, all at the same time… eeeuwwww
All of the NSO jobs, but Jam Timing has gotten boring without that double whistle. Looking forward to on-skate officiating soon!
I have too many, but Body BagHer (freelance NSO from Queensland) is my favourite right now.
Where you will find me at the after party:
You won’t, I’ll have a cider shandy then head home before it gets rowdy.
Severely strained/slightly torn Medial Cruciate and Mediscus tendons in April 2012. 6 weeks off skates, 6 weeks gentle skating then 4 weeks no contact equalled an investment in knee gaskets and learning to control my falls. Various other minor injuries, including a strained ankle, bruised coccyx and pulled groin muscle. My physio has learned to dodge knees and elbows and accept my cursing with good grace.
October 2011, when I signed up for ADRD Raw Meat about a month after I first put on skates.
Interstate Derby Mistress:
What derby means to me:
Everything. Derby has given me the determination to get and stay healthy, as well as giving me something to focus on when I really needed it, and has become my passion.
Greatest derby moment:
Having Refs at RollerCon Down Under being relieved when I was on their crew as an NSO and disappointed when I wasn’t. Apparently I NSO good.
Favourite Roller skating memory:
Barrelhouse Bessy telling me I have the makings of a good blocker in a very special 4 on 4 training session, then teaching me how to stand back up after I fell over.
Sure Grip Rebel Invaders on 89a/92a push combo, and a random collection of safety gear.
