So, it’s official Bangor… You have Roller Derby!
Even with the decision to expand our first newbie class to 40, all the slots were filled by the end of our meeting last Saturday! We even had some ref hopefuls and others show up, and it was a great meeting. We are set with a full class to start training on the 25th, and if the excitement at the meeting is any real judge, we will have a solid cast of graduates mid-December.
Remember, if you were hoping to get into our first group, you aren’t shut out of Derby. There are a lot of opportunities to participate while you’re waiting for the next newbie class. We need refs, non-skating officials, an announcer, and a lot of other volunteers to bring this together. Who knows, if you’re around a lot before the next newbie class, we might not call you “Meat,” all the time when you do get in.
If you’re just excited about Derby, but don’t really want to get your hands dirty, don’t worry – We need fans too!
You might not get quite the blast of chatter that’s been going around the last couple of weeks – we’re training after all – but we’ll be around, and it is never to early to start showing your support. You never know where we’ll show up – unless you come back and check the calendar here – but, we’ll be making the rounds.

Why not meet us there? Show your support for Roller Derby wherever it is in our great state, get a taste of what will be coming your way in 2012, and meet your Derby girls to boot!
