Back on track

Due to a busy time with Fierce Valley Roller Girls, with Fresh Meat, mins, try-outs and two bouts coming up, the Cubs has taken a bit of a back seat, but we got back on track this weekend.  Skaters representing FVRG and FVRC took part on Saturday in a launch event for The Helix in Falkirk (, signing up potential Cubs, skating, meeting Mark Beaumont and generally spreading the FVRG word.

From there, it was straight to Grangemouth to take part in the nationwide Roller Derby Torch Relay, a sponsored skate in aid of SportsAid.  Collectively, skaters from FVRG managed almost 12,000 laps (or 434 miles), the first 10 of which were skated by one of our Cubs, Cam Cam Thank You Ma'am.  He did a great job in getting the night started and we loved having him along.

On Sunday, a couple of us headed to the Scribbler's Picnic in Stirling with a stall to promote all of our activities.  Depsite the weather (we were plagued with rain all weekend), we spoke to lots of people and drummed up interest in the Cubs and our big sister.

All in all, a great weekend taking part in community activities and spreading the word.  Hopefully we're a huge step closer to getting started with the Cubs and we look forward to taking part in many more events like these.
