Success & Limericks! The First BRDG Pub Quiz...

A full house for the first BRDG Pub Quiz...
A huge thank you to everyone who turned up for the first BRDG Pub Quiz fundraiser - it was a massive success! We packed out our spiritual home, The Hobgoblin, and Quizmeistress Hell Cat (that's me!) put everyone through their paces; 6 rounds of questioning, picture rounds plus a creative challenge for a bonus!

The evening went so well that we're considering making it a regular event - so don't worry if you missed out, we'll be back soon.

We were raising money for our upcoming insurance renewal. Now that we're getting up to bouting level, we'd love to put on some live roller derby for the folks of Bath, and to do this, we'll need increased public liability insurance - which this quiz will help us afford!

One of the challenges facing the teams was to writing their own roller derby limericks - they were so awesome, I've been asked to post them here - enjoy!

Prizes! BRDG Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes & Babycham!
Bath Roller Derby Limericks...

A young derby player from Bath
Enjoyed the occasional half.
She put on her skates,
And rolled out the gate,
Then she feel in a heap on the path.

The was a young lassie from Fife,
And Roller Derby was her life.
She put on her skates
And made loads of mates,
And married her sweet Derby wife!

There was a team from Bath
Who didn't do skating by half.
They went hard or went home.
They'd broken some bone,
But they always had a good laugh.

Hell Cat leads the questioning...

There once was a young derby team,
Who had an elaborate scheme.
To raise lots of money,
They thought it was funny
To cover themselves in whipped cream.

(Next limerick to be read in a West Country accent!)

The thought of derby skating'
Gets my excitement inflatin'
You fall to the floor
And get hit 'til you're sore
Then ref calls "insubordinatin'!"

There once were some ladies from Bath,
Who fancied a jolly good laugh,
They upgraded their wheels
With yellows and teals
And kicked the other team's arse!

There once was a Bath Derby crew
Who made all the local boys coo
They lads would all stammer
To hip check their jammer,
But a leg whip would just have to do

A woman who came here from Stroud
Said "I don't see why you're all so proud!
It's just rugby on skates,
But you do look so great
Going round and around and around!"

Watch this space for details of the next BRDG pub quiz!
