Just to get an international perspective on this...I started skating with a US roller derby league. They expect x amount of 'service credits' (i.e. volunteer hours) a month. The events at which one can obtain said credits are always on weekends and spots get full quickly. Has anyone else ever heard of leagues doing this? My UK league was grateful if you had the time to help out but didn't demand this kind of commitment.
Also, i'm probably going to be heading to a gig on my own tomorrow night. Any tips for having as much fun as possible?
