This weekend was the second in a three bout run, and we had a great game in Taos on Saturday. It was a home game, Disco Brawlers v/s my team, the Doomsdames, but both teams had a little help. We were lucky to have Carson b. Demented, Botulism, and star jammer Brutalataur. We also had some brand new skaters playing thier very first bout on our team. Doomsdames fell behind quickly, but we also had a HUGE comeback in the second period. The game came down to the LAST JAM. With brutalataur in for the doomsdames and a major penalty on the Disco Brawlers' jammer the game ended with a two point spread! 105 Disco Brawlers to 103 Doomsdames. It was good, because when you lose by such a small margin it doesnt really feel like a loss, but it also makes you really think hard about your mistakes. That two points could have been from whenI didn't get on the track in time. It could have been made up anywhere!
There were some Rose City Rollers folks at the game- I should say the rose city rollers president was at the bout. I never really met her when I was skating in portland so I didn't say anything to her.
After the bout we went to an amazing farm and camped in the orchard.
IT was a great weekend.
Two bouts down, and one to go. Off to portland on Friday!
