Sunday was a closed scrimmage against Lawton. They were scheduled to play the Lightning Broads, but Storm Chasers could make the roster. Soooo I got to play - yay! We also had 4 girls who had never played a bout (3 SC, 1 LB) and another SC who's been around a little longer than I have. It was a closed scrimmage, which is a shame because not nearly enough people got to see me take some bitches out!!! Wow I had some good hits in that game. A quote received via text:
The first thing [coach] said when he walked in the door was "I'll tell ya who did good today... Suzy. She had some amazing blocks."
We went out to McNellie's afterwards and they are some really cool girls even though we beat them like 240 to 30. I really really wish I could be on the roster on the 30th when we go to them for a public bout. *sigh*
Last night was scrimmaging at the market to prep for the double-header bout on Saturday. It didn't seem like there were many people there for scrimmage - maybe 20? And I know 5 of those were storm chasers who aren't allowed to play. (I'm a little disappointed by this - my view is if you have the attendance points and there is a spot on the LB roster, SC should get to fill it. But I'm not a coach.) Josey gave me a good pointer - stay UP after I hit someone. Get closer before starting the hit, push through it, and skater stance to keep balance. I jammed a couple times, but for some reason was slipping all over the floor all night! Eh, that's what practice is for, to get used to these things.
