I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Santas vs. Elves

I had an amazing weekend!
We went to the groves to get our citrus, attended the Christmas Parade, and watched Shae's first scrimmage as an Ocala Cannibal... but she was skating as an elf due to it being a Christmas scrimmage.

The scrimmage was to collect for Toys for Tots, and I saw several boxes of toys. Another option was paying $5 to go towards buying toys for the kids. Gals from around the state were skating in this bout, and it was a close one.

Most of my pictures looked like this...
I need a new camera if I'm going to photo speeding skaters!
There's my Shae...I mean Militant Bulstrode....in the silver shorts. Number 9 3/4
In the end the score was 188 to 190 with the elves in the lead!
I did get a pic of the OCRD afterwards....minus 2 skaters who were taken to the hospital for injuries. We wish Foxy and Lil Looney a speedy recovery! Broken bones take time to heal. As the MC pointed out...Roller Derby IS a contact sport, and injuries do happen.
and just in case I didn't get a good shot, or didn't get everyone in it....
Kyle took some great pics with Militant's camera. Every time he pressed the button one of the girls went flying....and he captured it on film.
You must be aware of flying skaters at all times!

It was awesome, and we can hardly wait for the season to begin next year!

I took a few pics of the girls during the parade, too.
I'll be back this week with parade, and orange grove pics!
It was a really fun weekend, and I spent yesterday napping, but it was so worth it!!! I had a blast this weekend!

Hi Della ~ Enjoyed the story about your daughter and roller derby...wow...we don't have that around here. Do you get nervous when she's out there? Has she ever been injured? She must be quite the girl! I hope to see more photos of the action when the season starts.

So if a soccer mom drives a mini van - I wonder what a roller derby mom would drive :D

I read your last post first. Looks like some fun roller derby. Yep, I think you are going to have to treat yourself to a camera that will stop that action for a good shot! My camera is not good for action shots at all. I love the Santa vs Elves. Too cute!
