The Northern Brisbane Rollers (NBR) began in January 2008 and based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia are working towards their debut season starting in April 2009. With 15 regular derby skaters who have passed the first minimum skills test, it’s looking good. “We hope to have at least 30 regular derby skaters by February 2009”, says Chyna Rhino one of the founding members of NBR. “Interest in the beginner derby nights held at Albany Creek Skateaway is increasing, with many eager girls attending regularly”.
NBR has also recently been approved by the ‘Queensland Government Office of Fair Trading’ as an incorporated, not-for-profit Co-op. Being an incorporated co-op provides a flat structure that the founding members of NBR were interested in pursuing, while still enabling NBR to provide insurance for it’s members under Skate Australia.

So I’ve been doing my usual ‘lets browse youtube for kick ass derby clips’ and though I’d share some International vids with you all.
First a fairly old (late 2007) video on 20/20 with the Pirate City Rollergirls. Now I love the PCR mostly because I love pirates, but also because even here they totally kick ass, I can’t imagine how good they are a year later!
Next I have a little video of my own league, also from last year, playing the Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz, who we’re back to play in just a couple weeks (eek!). This video is unique because I think we may be the only leagues outside america who play TXRD-ish penalty games, the bout was also played in a nightclub on possibly the most dangerous track in the world. Very rock and roll.
The Hour did a great piece last year on the Toronto Roller Derby ladies championship bout (Gore Gore Rollergirls vs Chicks Ahoy), not only do I love this video, but those same two leagues are about to face each other AGAIN for this years championship!
And last but not least, I have a video from our fellow London league the London Rollergirls, of their last bout Summer Shovin. Not only do I love the music in this video, but the best intro ever is done by Raw Heidi (LOVE YA RAW). Just watch.

I got sent a link today to another international blog (please, send them my way!), which was unique to other blogs I’ve seen. An anonymous fresh meat skater from New Zealand is recounting her experiences from day one of joining derby. It’s been a couple of years now since I’ve been fresh meat, and it’s great to go back to the day where getting my first set of pads was an electric experience. And of course its 100% international, hey hey!
So check it out! Pads ‘n’ All – The Confessions of a Skater Girl

Inter Derby is back, huzzah! I’m still in the process of setting up new bloggers and such, but we’re back for the sake of saying so.
That being said, I’m still looking for bloggers and contributors.
Gimmie an email interderby at yahoo.com if you want to write full time, or just would like to submit an event, bout recap, press release, news coverage, ANYTHING.
So what’s been going on while I was away?
Rollercon took place, the ultimate getaway and meet and greet for international rollergirls. Leagues from all over the world came and there is no longer a Team World vs USA, oh no, with all the leagues springing up everywhere there was actually enough attendees to do Team UK vs Team Australia or the Farkin’ ‘Elles vs Cor Blimeys as they named themselves, with Team UK coming out on top 43-28!
Canada fielded two teams, East vs West, with East skating their way to victory.
London Rollergirls are hosting the first European tournament July 18-19th 2009. Open to all European teams, but all roller fans are welcome to come watch and/or help out! Stay tuned for details on that!
They also have their first intraleague bout with their BRAND NEW teams coming up Sept 27th. It’s gonna be the Ultraviolent Femmes giving some lashes to the fearless SuffraJets for the first one. The other team, yet to debut, is the Steam Rollers!
And my own team London Rockin Rollers are set for another border crossing adventure to take on the Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz in Stuttgart, Germany, also on Sept 27th. A year after our first game and defeat, we are back in a bout aptly named Time For Revenge!

Hi there, Toxic Judy from the Victorian Roller Derby League (Melbourne, VIC, Australia) signing in to introduce myself.
I’m here to keep you up to date with not only what’s going on in our neck of the woods but touching base with our sister leagues in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and all around Australia.
Unfortunately, I’m heading off to Cambodia tomorrow so I won’t be blogging for the next 4 weeks but when I return, look for our Valentine’s Day ‘Love Hurts’ bout recap to be held on Saturday, 16th February, as well as news from the forefront as the VRDL takes on the fine Adeladies at the Inaugural Skate of Origin on 23rd February (see previous post).
So until then, peace, love and bearings…
