Apologies ...

Before I get started posting all the latest goss from the UK Roller Derby world, firstly a quick apology for the past month of silence, I've been on a rather remote island in Honduras ... but the Round Up Bout is back, and wants to hear all your news, as ever
Thanks for all your support,
