I need wrist guards, my own are falling to pieces. And would love that skate tool that has the 'pipe' (the one in the photo nearer the blue toe guards). Maybe you could give these to one of the other skaters who are buying stuff and they could give them to me at practice :-) ?

I know you said you have retire but is always nice to have another source of information maybe a training session with us as a coach?

I doubt I'd be much use as a coach, but am still friends with those who you'd actually want to coach you, so let me know if you want me to be a go-between! I was always more useful with the organisational side of things like bout production and events and was one of the league directors for 3 years, so would probably be more helpful on that side of things. I've done NSOing, announcing and line-ups so if you need people for those sorts of things I could fill in!

Yes, we do (which league doesn't need help help with all the non-skating stuff :) )!
In fact I personally would LOVE it if we had a dedicated permanent line-up and/or bench manager!

hey,

Nice to meet you today first of all fez!

Everyone i have collected it all and is in my car, i will bring to practice friday and monday (away sunday).

Skates - they are a US 5.5 so a UK 4.5. (i checked as noticed they looked smaller than mine which are the UK 5.5!) Please can i buy them if Mush or Bicha dont want them? Its just i tried them on and they fit perfect and are completely worn in. Mine still are not worn in yet and im now worried they will be too big when they do stretch :( dam ordering from US! cant try shit on!

Thanks

Goldie xx

Thanks. Mine are definitely too big, I'm gonna have to order new boots otherwise and if u guys don't want them then this would save me lots of money and hassle! If not no worries I'll make do until march when I have some money to buy some. X

Yes, definitely, Goldie, it's cool with me. I'd say go ahead if Mush doesn't want them, but I'm still on my crappy R3s and there comes a time in a rollergirl's life when she should graduate to better gear ;) (these are the only ones I can only just afford - don't want to be mean, though!!) :?

If neither of you two can have them because they're too small, it means one of you can probably buy Goldie's off her. :)

hahaha, I thought that, but that'd be thinking too far ahead for what my coconut can do.

yeah i said only if you 2 dont want them.

its just im currently wearing 2 pairs of socks, ankles protectors and 2 x insoles just to keep them on and they are stretching more each time.

If your closer to a 5.5 or uk6 normally then mine would fit you. i just got bad advice on sizing :(

i've already started making enquiries with everglides and the shop in bridgend for new boots just in case but im looking at £250 for just the boot i think! :(

:shock:

Can't believe they've gone from killing your feet to not even hugging them. That's pants, really - I can only imagine the pain at the start if you'd got a size smaller!!! :o

i know, thats why i dont want to go through it ideally! :( gutted. although kinda my fault, i thought they felt big when they arrived but after waiting 5 weeks for them to arrive and 6 months of saving i kidded myself they were fine. i shoulda just sent them back straight away for an exchange.....ah well. see how they fit you two 1st. x
