#36 Roller Derby!

On my 36 things to do when i am 36 – i included attending a roller derby. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while but never quite gotten around to it.

So a few weeks ago we headed out. It was a night of intrigue, drama and good outfits! Dockyard Derby Dames had the championship bout and it was awesome. Having never been before I was not quite sure what to expect – but knew to get there early as it was open seating in one of the old warehouse buildings along the Tacoma waterfront.

One whole side was roped off as part of the beer garden – the other side “family friendly” but none under 13 allowed ringside. We kept ourselves busy with 3-Dollar Rolling Rock Tall Boys.

At one point the sun was streaming in through the top windows illuminating all of the rafters.

We stayed for the Femme Fiana and Marauding Mollys bout, but left 1/2 way through the Trampires and Hellbound Homewreckers.

I loved it and will be back to cheer those tough ass ladies on!
