Belchie McBruiser

Portside Pirates

I went to watch my first roller derby bout all by myself. I knew a few girls who skated and I was curious and wanted to see them in action. It was the last bout of the season, and a few minutes in I was addicted. From there I found out about the upcoming Skate and Greet and went there by myself too.

I tried on some gear and bought some used gear right on the spot, signing up for Learn to Skate on the way out the door.

I started my first day of Learn to Skate in October 2013. I could barely stand and I was terrified. I had never had a lot of friends or had anywhere I felt like I belonged until I started roller derby.

This upcoming season will be my second and I am very much looking forward to it, as our team has bonded and grown over the last year. fcr mar2

It’s going to be a great season!
