The end to a perfectly good year …
So Christmas is looming and we all hope over Christmas, that without training, it’s only the goose that’s getting fat!! This year has certainly had its up’s and downs, but am glad to say that S.W.A.T are ending the year on a high.
Starting out the year as fresh meat it was a hope that not only would I learn a new and exciting sport, but that a new group of friends would follow. How wrong was I!! And when I say this, I think we can all agree that we have all gained more than just a new friends group. Yes yes, this is pure cheddar at its finest. But I can honestly say that each and everyone on the team has made my Derby experience what it is. Team mates both on and off the track, each person bringing a memory that makes a training session what it is. From bullet proof tit plates, to rolling boot camps, to awkward falls that end in every one wincing and holding their girl bits in sympathy pain. But we are all there to help them dust off the hot pants and get back up again.
I would also like to say a massive thank you to everyone that has helped with the success of our league. I would like to say thank you to our head coaches Insane Bolt and Dot Slash for their relentless effort and hard work. Going over tactics to teach us and make us smarts!! To the assistant coaches Nurse A. Grudge and Ramona Devours for helping with training and putting a smile back on the coaches faces! To Marty McFlyer, for his extreme patience (mainly with me) and his help on the logo and Website. To the Mums and Dads who cheered us on and support us day in and day out, even when we bring our rancid smelling pads home after they’ve been left in the car for 3 days (sorry mum) To our friends who come with banners and cheered us on, your support means more to all of us and made our winning day even more perfect.
I hope everyone has a brilliant Christmas, stay safe when the snow comes (we’re all wishing it to come … who doesn’t want snow days?!) Eat plenty of turkey … (not too many sprouts) and look forward to seeing you all bright eyed and bushy tailed (I’d better catch me a squirrel if that’s what I’m hoping for!) Have a great time with family and friends. And look forward to seeing you all in 2012 … which I take this opportunity to say I feel will be an even better year for S.W.A.T
Much love folks
