Ok so Team Flamingo and Team Zebra has been long coming. Yes, that is SUPPOSED to say “2012”. Let’s just say I’m a little behind in my writing. I started putting things together for this article, and (quite honestly) I’ve been having a hard time getting some input on these lovely volunteers.
So this is my plan … I am going to name to those volunteers, those lovely NSOs that put up with skaters running into the box, acquiring multiple penalties at once and having to remember several penalties at a time for numbers like “0hn0” and “4LW”.
They are the people who we forget about too often, but without our army in pink – bouts would not happen. So thank you to the Non-Skating Officials. I have here the list of the top six NSOs that were voted on by YOU the viewers at home. There were 84 NSOs nominated Mid-Atlantic/New England area. Leagues as small as Beckley Area Derby Dames and as big as Gotham were represented. Flat track, bank track, MRDA, OSDA and WFTDA all made appearances on the list.
So now I need your help. Three of these people I just happen to know rather well. Three of them I have heard of their greatness in rumors and legends but I do not have any real awesome, concrete quotes about them. So I am looking to you: the readers!!
At the bottom of this article, you can post comments. Please post your comments as to why these folks deserve to be on TEAM FLAMINGO – ‘The Bestest Flamingos of 2012’. If you have photos of them, please post links too!! I was not able to find photos of two folks!
