Over a weekend ago (28th July is you want to be precise), the Pirate’s very own All Scars team went on a little pilgrimage to Whakatane for a friendly WFTDA strength factor game. This would be the last game for the All Scars before they head of to the US and A for Division 2 Playoffs (Pittsburgh). .
Thank you to the Whakatane Roller Derby League for hosting the event. We would also like to thank all the volunteers, NSOs, referees and audience members who came along to this event. Special shout out to our own Purple Parfait for being an NSO ninja.
If you are still reading this article, you have the patience of a saint. I have just one last message for you all and that is follow our Facebook page! You’ll see all our pirating antics (not the illegal kind), updates about events and we sometimes give away or sell our wares and treasures online. It’s worth a peek :)Two 30mins halves, a short half-time and some timeouts in between, the final score was 97 points to WRDL and 235 points to our All Scars. But don’t let the score fool you, those points weren’t easy. Have you ever tried to push a WRDL wall? Neither. It made me nervous just watching.
It wasn’t all work and no play for our Pirates though. Between the driving, bantering, snoozing and wailing to every great song ever recorded, we managed a couple of video recordings for our social media and givealittle followers. One involved a rainbow bikini and another with a couple of litres of milk. No idea what I’m on about? Cruise on over to our Facebook page and have a look for yourself or check out our givealittle page.
We have more hilarious antics to come but only if we reach our fundraising goals. I heard laughter is a great way to develop core so donating is probably easier and cheaper than that gym membership.
