OK, that last part should be easy. I'm driving myself to the bout, so I can pick one outfit, and just pack all my other derby clothes in the car, in case I change my mind. I'm also packing every spare wheel I own, and have lost track of how many extra laces are crammed into my skate bag. I have two backup mouthguards - one fitted, one new - and I'm probably going to throw all my extra pads into the car. Just in case. And duct tape. There's no such thing as too much duct tape.
Yeah, I have the pre-bout jitters. But I'm also really looking forward to it. I think I had an epiphany of sorts regarding hip checks on Wednesday night, thanks to help from my friend Sick, and memories of Bonnie D. Stroir's summer camp. Get low, stay low, hit hard, watch my elbows. I probably can't bout with sponges tucked under my arms, but maybe I'll drive down there with them.

I've been collecting ideas, though, in another place, and sharing them. I have a Squidoo lens called "Roller Derby Crafts." If you visit it, you can see a huge - and growing - collection of craft project links that could be useful for the Roller Derby skater or fan. It's going to grow as I find more stuff to do - or as I do more stuff, so I recommend visiting frequently!

What's Squidoo? It's an open, free platform that lets you create tightly focused pages - called "lenses" - to organize and share information about whatever interests you. You can check out Squidoo here.
