On the heels of last year’s Edgy Hockey, a feminist experiment with our favourite national sport, I wanted to invite everyone out to play in the game again this year! Our match, part of Edgy Women Festival in Montreal, will feature an invitation to buck the norms of our national sport in a late-night game of shinny with new rules, followed by a disco dance skating party.Watch! Bring your friends in costume. We’ll try to incorporate some new rules, and steal a few from roller derby. After the game, we’ll get down for a Derby Disco Skating Party — so, even if you don’t want to play in the game, be sure to bring your skates! If you want to watch, come in costume! DJs Lynne T and Wheelie Houdini (Patti Schmidt) will provide the soundtrack!
If you have any suggestions for new rules to incorporate in the ceremonies or game, send me an email or join the event on Facebook!
