If anyone is interested travelling a bit further, there is a 2-day May Day in Hell event in Helsinki 30/4-1/5/2011. Impressive selection of guest coaches from the States. I may go...


Have a look: http://www.helsinkirollerderby.com/mayday-in-hell-2011/


MayDay in Hell includes two days of International roller derby.


Day 1 (30.4.2011) will include training and a double-header bout

Day 2 (1.5.2011) is all about the full-day bootcamp for skaters and referees.


We have 5 great coaches confirmed for the skaters’ bootcamp. We are working hard to get some great referees to help us give Europe’s referees a great bootcamp, too! Stay tuned for more info about the referee coaches!


You can choose to participate on Saturday, Sunday or both days.


Note: All our participants are expected to have passed their WFTDA minimum skills requirements.



ADD 7/12/10 - I got some more info about this. You'll get to bout with/against international teams! Spaces are strictly limited and as they are trying to get a real international event together, only a few *skaters* per team are accepted. They would like more NSOs and refs! They can take 56 skaters on Sat and 60 on Sun (they *may* take extra non-skaters). Sat bout takes ~300 audience. Sat will be free for NSOs and refs, Sun you have to pay as it's a boot camp. Skaters pay for both days. Participation costs are Saturday: 25€, Sunday: 60€, Saturday & Sunday –package: 75€


IMPORTANT

If you're interested you will need to fill in an application form by 13/12/2010. YES, THAT'S BY 13th DECEMBER! The organising league will pick the skaters. To apply, fill in the form on the webpage and they will send you an invite, click the link (one for skater and one for refs) and it will take you to a form to fill in.

i don't think i'd be able to do this but just wanted to point people at a very good website for finding cheap flight deals - http://www.skyscanner.net/


is great if you're flexible about which days to fly on as you can view the flights in month mode and then just choose the cheapest flights that you see

Just checked: seems like the best way to do it would be to fly from Gatwick to Helsinki on the 29th (Friday) and to return Sunday evening. The flight is with easyjet and currently costs £68, or £88 if you want to take checked baggage - might be a bit tricky to fit all your skating gear into your handluggage.


There are direct flights from Bristol to Finland but only to places in the north so no good.


Coach to Gatwick costs £38 so it's possible to do it for £126. Doable, I would say.

Would anyone be up for sharing a room in a hostel if we went, to keep costs down? If tere were a few of us we might be alone in a room anyway...


Just an idea x

Ok, I have applied for this and I will definatley be going if they accept me. I guess it is down to numbers at the end of the day.


Top apply, fill in the form on the webpage and they will send you an invite, click the link (one for skater and one for refs) and it will take you to a form to fill in. I have applied for both days.


I will probably be be driving to my parents house near Gatwick first and leaving my car there, they will take me to Gatwick. I will not be coming back on the Sunday, I am going to stay in Finland for a while, but there will be a lift there for 3 other people in the car ^_^
