Rules

In preparation for the new season of derby, the team got together at Calamity Jam's house on Sunday for a cram session in WFTDA rules.

Holy shit there are a LOT of rules!

There are rules for when you can hit someone. There are rules for where you can hit someone. There are rules for how hard you can hit someone. There are rules for how big your numbers can be, where you stand, and tons of other things. We had been emailed 8 different mini quizzes to help us study, and tonight was where we got together to check our work and get things clarified.

OK. Put 15 women in a room to discuss something and see how long it takes!

We were there 4 hours! Basically, what you need to know is Clockwise=Bad, Counter-Clockwise=Good! Don't hit someone in the head or below the knees. And most important, don't call the refs a bunch of lousy, paid-off, blind, no good f*%kers! You WILL get thrown out.

Wish me luck for when I take my test!
