Merby Recruitment Roller Disco

Postby MatLOVIN » 04 Jul 2012, 17:12

The Men's team would like to host a Roller Disco at some point in August with an emphasis on bringing new guys along for some no commitment fun, which will hopefully leave to an increase in recruitment. I know there are some derby widows who are getting quite tempted... (extra peer pressure).

So who'd be interested? and which day of the week would be best for you / your relatives / your partners etc...?

What would we do about the main off putter, lack of boots?

Yeah, I reckon I could persuade Mr Bald NotQuiteSoEvil to maybe have a shot, but where would he get skates? It's a hell of an investment for one night - I've been offered lends of skates for me to have a shot but you couldn't really do that for enough men to make a roller disco worthwhile. Could you?

I don't know the fine print, but I *think Let's Sk8 hire out boots.

You could have it at an existing roller disco venue and work on promotion only rather than setting it all up yourselves maybe?

Or maybe contact Lyndsey who does Bump roller disco and has all the hire skates. She's also involved with Unit 15 (and possibly the Kings of Ping) and is very approachable. We were going to borrow some off her for something (cant remember what now) and she said that as long as we replaced anything that was damaged we could just borrow them.

But I don't know how that affects insurance

Like Bo says - maybe just try let's sk8 http://www.letssk8.co.uk/Parties---Private-Hire.html

Thanks for all the advice, looks like I'd not considered a few vital aspects. I'll get my organising hat on.

It would be worth documenting somewhere (if its not already) what there is available in the spares bin, and what people could lend if need be.

Do you mean the hire kit? I would hope people aren't using it for spares, we used to hire it out to fresh meat and money was invested in it so I would hope people are just borrowing things occasionally and definitely not calling it a bin :shock:

Saying that it does need a tidy and an inventory check...

Judging by the smell of it, maybe even a wash... ;)

That's exactly what I was saying. Any misunderstanding is down to terminology. Spares = hire kit, Bin = large container ;)

You guys should have a social at the bath roller disco. I don't know about the ones in Bristol but there are so many awesome male skaters there they might be up for joining merby.
Also I friend from work would be interested in coming to see what it's all about, he has just bought skates too, a disco environment would be cool, nice and informal. Maybe add some 'manly' games of British bulldog though.

Are we girls allowed to come too, or is it just pure 100% sausage-fest?
