Derby Demo for my Class - Please Help!

Post  Laura on Mon Sep 10, 2012 10:03 pm

It's that time of year again - time for me to teach my Sport History students at Lincoln College (the Normal campus) about the fabulous sport of Roller Derby!!!

I would love to have some of my fellow 'Fits help me out on Thursday, September 20th, with a little derby demo for the class (and whoever else happens to come by and watch). Class runs 4:00 - 5:15, and we can schedule something for the beginning or the end of that time period; whichever will work best for people.

There's an outdoor basketball court (concrete) where we can skate. I'd like to be able to show them What Roller Derby Is All About - and if we manage to mention a few times that there's a bout coming up, that's really good, too.

Thanks!

I'm very sorry you won't be there to intimidate students, Dinah :-(

Laursony, we could go with the end of the class period - if that works for JMFK? Start around 4:40 and go for about half an hour? I can be really flexible on the time - and I know the students will be happy to be outside, since that will mean they're not in class getting a quiz :-)

Where - Lincoln College (the Normal campus!) - 715 Raab Road. If you haven't been out there before, it's easier to see the sign for the Midwest College of Cosmetology - that's where you turn in. There's only one classroom building. I'm in Room 115, at the end of the building closest to the dorms - so we could meet there, or at the basketball court outside (just to the right of the building - there aren't any permanent hoops, just a concrete court) - whichever you think is easier.

My phone # is 317-372-0836 - so you can call or text me if you need to!

When - does 4:40 or so work? That should give some time to talk & do stuff.....

What - Be your awesome selves! Seriously - anything to show off derby - some hitting, some whips, some skating around - general This Is How We Do Stuff. I'll bring my gear, and can put it on or not, depending on whether we need a talker or a skater. If we get any others to join in we can do some pack stuff. (Come on - you know you want to!) I'll have spent the first half of class talking about the history of various sports, and the Great Depression, and women's liberation, and how that all led to roller derby. So they'll probably have a lot of questions about the modern sport - I hope. So the idea is to just be awesome - and mention that we have a bout coming up :-)

[Oh - I should add the bad part - that I'm up to my eyeballs in work and only sneaking away right now, so I don't know if I'm going to get out to practice tonight. But call me if you need me!]

Yes, that all works. I will just be outside, and you can come out when you are ready.
