Blood Sweat and Bruises – Issue #351

SWSR were excited last year to be asked to participate in a story and photo-shoot for Australian “OzBike” magazine, with the amazing talent of Chris Nilsson, the photo-shoot would not have turned out as great as it did.

The feature which we were so excited to be a part of is

The amazing 5-page spread of the South West Sydney Rockets featured some lovely ladies from SWSR past and present, whom without the support of all SWSR could not have grown into the strong league it is today; so thank you to all the Rockettes who came out on the day and featured in the awesome photo-shoot and league / bike article.

As part of the Eastern Region Roller Derby Smack Down (the first ever being held in September 2010, between leagues in NSW WIRD, WSR, SRDL & CRDL battling it out for glory).

More leagues have now joined forces and The Ladies of the ERRD have come together for the first “Booty Boot Camp” hosted by WSR, with the support of WIRD, SRDL, NRDL, and participation of SWSR, CRDL & MARD

the organising leagues brought together some of the finest ladies and men from around Oz the teach the New South Welsh ladies some new skills, tricks and strategies to take back home to our leagues

With the likes of the amazing Vaderella from ADRD,

Kitty DeCapitate, Bezerker and Rocky Rouge from VRDL

Mick and Mark from SSRG

Along with the help of many Refs and NSO’s the booty camp and Flood Relief Bout was a huge success;

As part of the booty camp, the special guest’s where invited to select a bunch of girls from the various leagues to skate in the Saturday night bout “Flood Relief on the Flat Track”

With proceeds of the ticket sales going to the unfortunate victims of the floods.

SWSR would like to send a heart felt hug to all those who have been effected by the floods, in QLD, VIC and TAS, we hope you all get back on your feet really soon x

There are many benefit and flood relief fundraisers happening all over country, be sure to check our facebook for updates on Skate related flood relief fund raising events, and be sure to help out any way you can xox
