Monthly Diary of a League: Nasty Nessies in December: Black Death

The winter holidays don’t get in the way of our team diaries: while you’re recovering from over-indulgence, why not catch up on the Nasty Nessies’ happenings with this month’s interviewee: Black Death!

What first attracted you to Roller Derby?

Um………….Skating & Violence of course.

Derby names are an important aspect of the sport, especially when you’re starting out. How did you choose your name, and how does it reflect your personality on track?

Choosing my name was real easy for me coz Black is my surname & I love Death Metal……Simples.

What was your biggest initial difficulty?

Getting a babysitter for my wee girl on a regular basis coz missing practice is a right Bitch!!

Lots of roller girls find it hard not to spread the word about their new sport. How have you been spreading the word?

I wear the NNRG badge with pride and talk about the sport to whoever will listen.

What’s the most important thing you’ve learnt/done this month?

I’ve learnt that Smoking, Drinking & too much Partying does affect your stamina.

What were the most difficult and best things you’ve done?

Difficult: Doing this daft move our coach calls the ‘Duck-Walk’, it’s like a jump start move which I can do but if i think about it too much i’m screwed.

Best Things: The best thing without a doubt is joining NNRG & meeting all the girls in the team.
We all have such different lives and probably wouldn’t have met if it wasn’t for the great sport of roller derby!

And, finally: what’s new in NNRG?

Well, we’ve got a lot of new girls starting in the team all with keen interest.  We also have an interview & photo shoot coming out in the Inverness Courier.  But my favourite thing is that we are just about to decide on what uniforms the team will wear. Woohoo. x
