Day 06 — Whatever tickles my fancy

I tried out for the local Women’s Ice Hockey League last night. It wasn’t really a ‘tryout’ so much as a drill session to make sure I could actually skate well enough to stand upright with a stick and pads. The Women’s league is really small – only four teams. What this means is that novices like me are playing alongside Canterbury and New Zealand reps. It’s a little daunting, but also a really great opportunity to learn from the best.

Hopefully by the end of the season I won’t be skating up and down the ice yelping “Holy shit!” any time the pack whizz by me.

Trying on the gear

    Good for you! But, expect that pack to be whizzing!

    You will end up a whiz kid as you have the determination to do it and do it well. You had improved so much by the end of the night so in 3 weeks when we see you, you will probably be tearing from one end to the other getting in there!!!! Go Bebe Mowgli!!!
