Title: Roller Derby anyone? Fri. 7pm, April 20th
Post by: WendyDarling on April 10, 2007, 03:58:45 PM
First off, thanks to Win and Jay for my repeated requests to change my password and/or re-register me.  I'm obviously not visiting over here as often as I should  :oops:  

So the topic at hand:  Anyone down for some roller derby action?  I mentioned it to Winston not too long ago, and he suggested I let you all know...maybe make an informal get together?!

The bouts are a great time, I'm sure you'd all have a blast!  Kids 12 and under are free and the bouts are very family friendly (despite some moderately risque skate names and uniforms) It's only $13 bucks and you can also sit RIGHT UP FRONT next to the track!

I started training with these ladies last month, by the way.  I'm officially a Denver Roller Doll, but am still on probation so I won't be skating at this bout.  Hopefully they'll have me whipped into shape soon, though  :thumbup:

It'd be great to see you all there!  If you'd like to get some tickets ahead of time and enjoy some ever-so-delicious BBQ, stop by Brothers BBQ at 1st and Wadsworth this Friday, also.  I'll be there slinging $1 PBRs and selling tickets with some of the other Dolls.

Hope you're all doing well...like I said, it'd be awesome to see some of you all there!  

~Wen

PS If nobody wants to come, no big whoop.  I'll still keep in touch with Win and try to make it to a GTG sometime to see ya'll!  

PPS You guys gotta see the Cabrio...she's hawt!  

PPPS Dr. Jon, Scott and I finally quit smoking for good!  It will be 6 months on the 23rd :)

Woot! I'm gonna do the After Party too :twisted:

I'm trying to see if we can make it out to Brothers to buy a PBR from you. :) Of course I would like to see the Roller Derby, but talking Renee into it might be a challenge. I better work on my salesman skills. ;)

If you need help talking her into it, let me know Jay!  Derby's so much better than it used to be in the 70's - there are no staged fights, winners, etc.  The gals work their asses off every week conditioning and training - it's definitely not ALL about the fishnets ;)

Hey Dave-it IS fun! :-)  The BBQ thing at Brothers is this Friday from 7pm-10pm at the 1st and Wads location.  The actual bout is NEXT Friday, the 20th, at 7pm at the Coliseum.  Tickets to the bout are available the night of the bout at the Coliseum, but it's easier to buy them from your friendly local roller girl or online ;)

I can't make the thingy...working.

PS....I moved to Parker, so if you are soon to be in Erie, we will be on the opposite sides of the state.

Hey, who's going? Can someone get me a ticket? I'm out of town this weekend.
Title: Re: Roller Derby anyone? Fri. 7pm, April 20th
Post by: 92UrS4 on April 12, 2007, 07:49:59 AM
I tried talking Renee into it last night and her response was: "Why do you want to go, is it so you can see women in skimpy clothes wrestling with each other?" I responded....Yes, doy!

I'm still working on it, I think it would be fun to at least go
Title: Re: Roller Derby anyone? Fri. 7pm, April 20th
Post by: ColoradoB5 on April 12, 2007, 09:05:37 AM
Jay, you can tell her you are going to support Wendy, who is one of the original RMCB5'ers and that much of the club is going too.  I have never seen a roller derby, so I think that would be cool to check out by itself, but with Wen being there, it's extra special.

Here's the teams:

Wendy, which one are you on?  What's your name?  Is that you in the back second from right of the Bad Apples?

Post by: WendyDarling on April 13, 2007, 09:00:20 AM
Not on a team yet, Win :)  There's a minimum 90 day probation period before you can even "test" to be eligible to be drafted to a team, and I have about 60 to go :-)  The Dolls try to ensure all of the gals that are going to bout are in great condition and have a minimum set of skills to make everything as safe as possible.

It's too bad that's Renee's perception of roller derby, Jay!  We need to work on that! :(  It would be nice if she came to a bout to see that it's much more than just "girls wrestling each other with skimpy clothes on..."  ;)  It's actually a full-contact race on roller skates (with skimpy clothes on, hahaha)!  The costumes really are incidental, and are just that-costumes.  Also, the wrestling/fighting days of yesteryear have gone.  Any fighting between skaters is now cause for ejection from a bout.  Fighting is a big, big no-no in our league, so alas, no wrestling.  

Of course if I don't see ya there, Jay, I'll see ya some other time I'm sure!  After we get settled in the new house and get used to our new routine, we'd like to make it to a GTG one of these days :-)  

And Jon-yeah I just saw you moved!  I guess I'll quit lookin' for the Mini when I'm in Westminster :-)  Parker's a nice town, one of our buddies in DCI used to live there and I loved going to hang out at his place.  Yes, it's really far south, but it's a beautiful area!  I'll miss you at the bout, but I'll hopefully see you sometime this summer :-D

Hopefully it works out and you can come, Jay...it'd be good to see you two!

Hey, the family and I stopped by Brothers BBQ on Staurday afternoon and we didn't see you.  I guess taking a chance, oh well.  I am looking forward to going.  What are your hours this week and I can stop by to pick up a couple of tickets?

Hey, anybody want to meet up somewhere before the match and roll down to the coliseum as a group? Winston, PM me if you still need a ride. Alan [velo] said he could give you a ride home earlier if I wanted to stay out late.

I need a ticket too. I was planning on getting one at the door, but if you grab a couple can you get an extra? I'll give you cash when we meet up.

Hey Dave I think she was just there to promote the event.  Kinda of a hazing, I'm sure.  Wendy doesn't work there normally.

Hey I bought my tickets.  I think JR, Velo and I are going to head on up about the same time.  I think we are going to shoot for 6:30 to get there and chill.  Anyone want to meet up with us?

Pick a spot in town and I'll meet up wherever...don't care. I am out by the airport for reference but again, don't care where we meet up. I'll just get my ticket at the door.

:oops:   I just now noticed all of the initial pics.  For some reason they were being blocked at work and it does not show a red "X".  

Wendy, I am sorry. I guess I will pic one up at the door then.

Hey guys,

Here is a link to the GoogleEarth view of the Coliseum and parking lot:

CLICK ME (http://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=Red+Rocks+Amphitheatre:+Event+Calendar&near=Denver,+CO&ie=UTF8&z=17&ll=39.779156,-104.969505&spn=0.004189,0.007049&t=h&om=1)

It looks like the parking lot is an upside-down triangle.  Try and park in the upper left side of it and we'll just try and meet there about 6:30.  

Dave, I still think you can buy tickets online and only pay the $13 for them...

I'll definately be there when Wendy hits the derby!

Thanks Alan, I'm working hard - hopefully it won't be tooooo long before I get to bout, too!  

Dave, I will remember to post more "text" info to go along with the pictures for peeps that have blocked pics at work :-(  AND I will try to check in more often in the future - this roller derby thing is turning out to be like a part-time job with all of the hours required!  Thank God for work, so I can surf the web and post stuff like this!  :lol:   :oops:

I'm so excited you guys are coming!

Also, forgot to mention you can pick up tickets at King Soopers as well as order online at  

http://ticketswest.rdln.com/Artist.aspx?contentID=9830

I will be looking for you guys, but I will also be on the Green Barrette's bench tonight serving as their Waterbitch for the bout so I have no idea how busy I will be.  I will DEFINITELY be ready to have a beer or two at the after party, though...I hope some of you can come to that too! (free admission to the Shelter with ticket stub.)

What a night this is going to be!!!  Woohoo!!!

Yes it was a good time, and except for it being loud, I would say it was family friendly.  Well, about as family friendly as a Broncos game.
