Boom. State. Clash.
Three words that loomed in our minds, I’m sure, for months. We’ve all heard of TGSS and Rollercon, these fantastic tournaments and workshops, with derby idols zooming past you on and off the track. We’d been given tips and tricks from those lucky few who got to rub shoulders with the derby-elite in far off places. But to have our very own? Here? In WA? THIS year? It seemed an unreal possibility, something we dared not dream of, in case we jinxed it. Yet, thanks to THE ORGANISERS* who dared to speak its name, skaters refs and NSOs from all over the boom state had the opportunity to gather to play, learn and watch some actual real-life roller derby with skaters from over ten different leagues!
