Skating with Big Easy Rollergirls

Earlier this week I was fortunate enough to travel to New Orleans for a work conference. Ever obsessed with skating as much as possible, I contacted the Big Easy Rollergirls before I left. The hope was to join in on one of their practices.

I was afraid I wouldn't be able to carry on my entire skate bag, so I was prepared to check that and carry on just my skates in a backpack. One of the few things that went better than expected—the trip was full of craziness—was that I was able to carry it all on after all.

I also took my usual practice gear. The evening turned out to be a clinic for prospective Fresh Meat, so I felt a little out of place as neither a skater or a new girl. However, that's how I've been in my home league for a while now, so it wasn't that unusual.

These girls were too super-sweet. I'd love to skate with them again.

The clinic was a welcome chance to skate while out of town, but I don't have anything too noteworthy to report. As a parting thought, I do need to share this sticker found in the rink's bathroom.
