Roller Derby – Low Cost Fun!

21 04 2010

We had quite an experience last weekend!  We were to go to a friend’s house for dinner, but one of the guests found out about Roller Derby!  Her partner is a huge fan so we decided to move the location of our dinner to the Convention Centre where the Roller Derby was being held.  The fun part of this adventure was that we were giving the “Roller Derby Fan” a surprise, so they set off, assuming that they were heading to dinner, but instead drove south to the convention centre.

There were so many people there;  we were, to say the least, totally surprised!  People of all ages were there!  They catered to those new to the sport by holding a Roller Derby 101 session before the “race” (I’m not sure if that’s what they call it), so we understood the rules, then they were off and racing.  These are seriously fit and resilient women who participate in this sport and it was quite exciting to watch.

Who knew these events happened in Brisbane?   Look around you and see what events are happening in your local area, the ticket to this event was just $16.50, so not free but certainly affordable and a whole lot of fun!

Have a fabulous week!

Note from Michelle – Another wonderful idea.  Surprises for friends and family members are really a wonderful treat and there are loads of things you can do for minimal cost or for free.  You can post your tips to the Secret Stash and go in to the monthly draw for a Personal Budget Organiser valued at over $50!
