Carnival of the Strange Round-Up

Saturday 21st November 2009 saw Lincolnshire Bombers host the Carnival of the Strange! 

Doors opened at 1pm, and Newark Show Ground looked like you had just fallen down the rabbit hole and ended up in Wonderland. The children’s area was filled with all the retro kiddie treats we loved from our own childhoods - face painting, hook a dook, hoopla and giant size confectionary. This was a true Roller Derby celebration with acts, performers, burlesque, bands and stalls with allsorts of skating goodies plus the highlight of the day live Roller Derby Action!

The two teams were made up with skaters from across the country -
Lincolnshire Bombers, Auld Reekie Roller Girls, Central City Roller Girls, Glasgow Roller Girls, Leeds Roller Dolls, Middlesbrough Milk Rollers, Sheffield Steel Rollergirls, Rainy City Roller Girls, Rebellion Roller Girls and Royal Windsor Rollergirls!

Considering these player had little time to practice together, they kept their eyes on the prize and pushed forward in unity. Jammers took off from the line like they were shot from a cannon, and there was some spectacular blocking going on, which cleared the way for Jammers to skip through the pack time and time again. The girls gave 100% and were unyielding in there task to become “Queen of the Carnival”. 

 “The Children of the Damned” were triumphant, managing to improve dramatically on their first half lead with final scores of

Children of the Damned 196 : Las Ninas Muertas 63
