The Bay Rollers

Bay-Rollers-01.14--#7-Jamaica-Me-Crazy-EJTF-9W6A4775Name Jamaica Me Crazy

Number 7

Age 31

Height 6 foot in roller skates!

Birthday Leo

Position Blocker and occasional Jammer

Years in the sport I’m starting my fourth year with The Bay Rollers. Before that I did freshmeat with Adelaide Roller Derby and also helped start the Darwin Rollergirls.

Favourite food Really? Just one? It has to be when someone else cooks…

Favourite colour The sea on a crystal clear day

Career Highlight I’ve certainly had a few memorable moments with The Bay Rollers. I think resoundingly beating Toowoomba at Tropicarnage (a SE QLD & Northern NSW Roller Derby tournament) after they had beaten us a year before. It was pretty sweet. And our roll-out for our home game as the Twisted Sisters was all my roll-out dreams coming true at once!

Motto If you’re not having fun, it’s not worth doing.

 

The Bay Rollers are looking for new players, referees and non-skating officials. They are holding an information session and skate on Friday 21 February 6–9pm at the Byron Sport Complex, Ewingsdale Rd.
