The goal is to try different activities and classes in Birmingham and rank them in Brum Nuggets. (In reference to my excitement about Chicken Nugget Burgers :O WICKED!!!!!!!!)
Rankings will be out of 5
Fun – How enjoyable was it.
Value for money – I am poor and cheap which is a bad combination.
Join-ability – How hard is it for a new person to join.
Spam-ability – I would go again or spam people about it.
So a total of 20 Brum Nuggets up for grabs.
Fun – Awesome fun. As well as the sport side there is always an after party to win. I made life long friends that are still inviting me to win the after party even though I am not skating any more.
Value for Money – £5 for a 2 hour session, which includes all equipment, coaching, venue and parking. First session is free.
Join-ability – For new skaters their are 2 sessions per week where you can join which increases to 3 once you get membership and all equipment is provided. However you do need to email firstname.lastname@example.org a few days before to reserve your skates and pads so you cant just turn up on the day.
Spam-ability – I have spent the past 6 years spamming people about how good roller derby is and even though I quit i am still at it. Not sure whether this can ever be beaten.
So Roller Derby gets a score of 16/20 I have left room to see if something can beat it. It is epic fun so I would recommend you try it if you can.
If you want to try then information can be found here:
Central City Rollergirls (CCR) – http://centralcityrollergirls.co.uk/f-a-qs/
CCR teach both men and women to skate however if you want to play Mens Roller Derby you can contact:
Crash Test Brummies – http://crashtestbrummies.co.uk/join-us/
So the score to beat is 16/20
Have you got a suggestion of what I should try? If so complete this form with details.
