Brisbane Roller Derby for Men and Women - Brisbane City Rollers Fresh Meat day Sun Jan 24

On Sunday January 24th 2010, Brisbane City Rollers are holding a Fresh Meat day - a day for people (ages 18+ only, sorry) new to roller derby to come and try the sport out and see if they'd like to join a serious league. Brisbane City Rollers is unique in Queensland as they have a league for men and women - most roller derby leagues are women-only.

Brisbane City Rollers is Brisbane's newest Roller Derby League (the other two leagues are the Northern Brisbane Rollers and Sun State Roller Girls). Brisbane City Rollers train at Bundamba in Brisbane's western suburbs, on the outskirts of Ipswich.

The Fresh Meat day is from 4.45 pm - 6.45 pm, and it's $12 for the session. If you don't have skates or protective gear you can hire them for an extra $10. (You have to wear the protective gear to train).

If you're thinking of going, BCR has a heap of info on this page about what to expect at your Fresh Meat session. For more info you can also email brisbanecityrollers@gmail.com, or have a look at the Brisbane City Rollers fan page on Facebook. You can also RSVP on the Facebook event page for the Fresh Meat intake if you like using Facebook to keep track of what you're doing.

This video shows off what happened at the Fresh Meat session last September:

The Fresh Meat session is at the Bundamba Skateaway, 21 Agnes St, Bundamba, about a 200m walk from the Bundama train station - click here for a Google Map. If you need to find train timetables, click here to use Translink's public transport journey planner

(Oh, and apparently you say "Derby" to rhyme with "Herbie", not "Darby". This means you can make jokes like saying "Talk derby to me")
