Get Marko to Big O - USA - 2018!

"Hi mom, friends, and the amazing derby community! Being a derby photographer is probably the best thing to do. Unfortunately this all this awesomeness comes with a hefty price tag - focusing on getting good photos means a lot of games and tournaments around the year, and the equipment itself is pretty expensive too.  (I mean, I live in Finland where saying hi to your neighbour costs about 20 dollars. OK that was a joke, but flying from Finland to anywhere really isn't cheap). 
So, dish in what you can and want. Every cent and dollar and euro counts and I will highly appreciate it all. Naturally I will do my best to give back to the derby community in the form of photos, but! Wait! There's more! I'll try to come up with a personal poem to everyone who donated and in higher donations I'll throw in some fine prints too! Thank you. ♥️ "

Let's talk about roller derby (but in a cool/respectful way)

Daily theme threads, moderated admission and post approval, and discussion of big topics!

No more dumpster fire groups, no more 500 posts about knee pads.

Join today and share a post about what's on your mind lately! 

Thanks so much for checking out the Weekly Roundup! You can find the archive of Roundups here, if you want to catch up!

I'm always looking for more derby news to share each week so if you have anything you'd like to be included, let me know!
