Part of my extracurricular adult activities is as a skating official with the local roller derby league, the Quad-City Rollers. Last night I was the Head Ref, a position that requires coordinating all the skating officials but the non-skating officials, as well as setting up the track.
We had a few hiccups, but for the most part it went OK.
The bout was a double-header, a B-level bout and an A-level bout.
Skating for 100-plus minutes is grueling and reminds my body of what it was like when I first started doing this.
But in the end if all came together relatively smoothly and you get to see everyone's hard work pay off.
