A list… reasons why you should watch a derby bout in Lethbridge

Whenever I get a chance to talk about derby with the lovely Lethbridge locals, I always get asked, “Where do you play?” Then I always have to answer, “Well, we haven’t played a game locally yet, but some practices are open to the public, blah blah blah.”

Now, I can give them a date!

Lethbians! Mark your calendar! Saturday, October 23!

Details of the event are still being finalized, so stay tuned. But in the mean time, I would like to pay homage to my fellow blogger and cyber-friend The Active Stick with a list on why you should come.

  • It’s going to be zombie themed. (Our team name is DEATHbridge. Kind of a no-brainer… mmmmm brains)
  • There’s beer.
  • You can bring your kids AND drink beer. (Please have a safe ride home)
  • You can bring your grandma AND drink beer. (Have your grandma drive you home)
  • Since it’s the week before Halloween, there’s a good chance the weather will be crap. So you may as well spend your Saturday night indoors watching girls bash the crap out of each other.
  • You get to watch the Deathbridge Derby Dames play together as a team for the first time EVER! (We’re most excited about that)
  • You can drink more beer at the after party.
  • The likelihood of derby girls showing off bruises on their thighs at the after party is mid to high.
  • You can become our biggest fan. (Then you can come watch us play in Medicine Hat on Nov. 27. More fans = more derby!)

So you’ll come, yes?

    • Thanks so much! And YES! We’d love for you to come out and give us a hand! We’re in the process of training 3 refs right now. Do you have any advice you’d like to pass on to them?

  1. My brain isn’t nearly big enough to be a ref – I’m a mere announcer. What I would tell yours is read, read, read, since you will always come across a situation you think the rules don’t cover (but they do). There’s also an off-skate drill you can do to help the refs by running the track and freezing on a whistle. You can then quiz them (and yourselves) on who is in the pack, who is not, and why.

    Have fun!
