This blog began as an account of my attempts to become a roller derby girl with the Adelaide Roller Derby League ADRD. Early posts were done under the pen name Em-Shazzam!
I first became aware of and interested in roller derby when I went to see Whip It at the cinemas in Canberra. Girls from the Canberra Roller Derby league were there handing out fliers to their Halloween 2009 bout. I attempted twice in Canberra to go to a bout but they sold out so quickly I never made it.
In 2010 I attended as many ADRD bouts as I could. It’s a great sport – an awesome blend of theatrics and athleticism. This blog was initially supposed to last for about three months. In late 2010 I tried out, unsuccessfully, for ADRD and so the blog continues. I also managed to pick up a co-author or two!
