Skate & Create


It’s been a crazy few weeks.

I finished teaching my MICA classes last week. I taught a 7 week seminar on WordPress, a weekend long seminar on HTML/CSS and a weekend long seminar on HTML5/JavaScript (which required quite a lot of preparation).   I enjoyed them all, and had great people in the classes.

I learned this week that our rink is changing management. We had to cancel our Season’s Beatings game and a scrimmage with our friends the Freedom Belles, which is unfortunate (and could have been avoided). I’m extremely optimistic about the new management and the future of the rink. We all have our fingers crossed. It’s been such a huge year for this league, with so many changes, that I’m grateful we’ve stuck together and kept it going. The stresses of these past few weeks have highlighted just how important derby is to me right now, and how important these folks are in my life.

Our last game (11/18/2102) was the annual “Pirates vs. Pilgrims” game, which was my very first scrimmage a year ago.  Here are some pics for posterity. Better late than never. The really good ones are from Gary Bell, Jr (Sir Pix-a-lot) with Dreams in Focus photography.
