A huge thank you to everyone who turned up for the first BRDG Pub Quiz fundraiser - it was a massive success! We packed out our spiritual home, The Hobgoblin, and Quizmeistress Hell Cat (that's me!) put everyone through their paces; 6 rounds of questioning, picture rounds plus a creative challenge for a bonus!
The evening went so well that we're considering making it a regular event - so don't worry if you missed out, we'll be back soon.
We were raising money for our upcoming insurance renewal. Now that we're getting up to bouting level, we'd love to put on some live roller derby for the folks of Bath, and to do this, we'll need increased public liability insurance - which this quiz will help us afford!
One of the challenges facing the teams was to writing their own roller derby limericks - they were so awesome, I've been asked to post them here - enjoy!
Bath Roller Derby Limericks...
A young derby player from Bath
Enjoyed the occasional half.
She put on her skates,
And rolled out the gate,
Then she feel in a heap on the path.
The was a young lassie from Fife,
And Roller Derby was her life.
She put on her skates
And made loads of mates,
And married her sweet Derby wife!
There was a team from Bath
Who didn't do skating by half.
They went hard or went home.
They'd broken some bone,
But they always had a good laugh.
All the historic goings on of Bath Roller Derby!
