Tickets for next Hellions roller derby bout

hellions bout poster 2011-01-12Speaking of roller derby... we have five pairs of tickets to give away to the Hellions of Troy bout this weekend. The Nickel City Knockouts will be in from Buffalo for a cross-state throwdown to determine who's queen of the rink.

So, if you'd like to go to the bout, submit a comment answering this question:

How much snow did you get today?

Of course, we'll take answers such as "10 inches." But "too much," "not enough" and "we got snow?" are also acceptable. Extra points (not redeemable for anything) for creativity.

The Hellions bout is this Saturday at the Rollarama in Schenectady. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of ($3 for kids). Doors at 7 pm, action at 8 pm.

Important: Five winners, drawn at random, will get a pair of tickets. You must answer the question to be entered in the drawing. You must submit your comment by noon on Thursday January 13, 2011. One entry per person, please. You must include a working email address (that you check regularly) with your comment. Winners will be notified by 5 pm on Thursday and must respond by 9 am on Friday.

8 inches of snow!

Not enough! Because I didn't get a snow day from work. *sigh*

Hopefully enough to make a step stool so I can see something this time. i can't believe it costs the same to see a roller derby game at rollarama and the armory. they layout at rollarama sucks and you can barley see anything.

Too much! (to drive in, but I did) and Not enough! to get the day off work, sigh.

Almost 9 inches so far, and its still coming down :)

Enough to bring me back to more youthful days -- found an empty parking lot for a few fishtails and donuts on my way to work.

Nearly 8 inches I have heard. Which is enough to make me pray that my plow guy has come so I don't get stuck shoveling my super long driveway.

Not enough either! Feels like something way under a foot of snow - I can't wait for the storm that knocks out the internet but keeps my power on, then I can have a true snow day!

Enough to stay home from work and snowblow the driveway twice!

A ridiculous amount and it's still coming down. The backyard is pretty but I need to get the driveway dug out and I don't wanta.

Just the right amount for those living in the great north east!

I don't know... It won't stop!

Enough, until I had to go out and shovel, and then it was too much!

Enough to get a snow day from work! 10 inches or so here.

Enough snow to play with my new 8 ft wide snow blower behind the tractor after being stuck in the house for a few weeks from surgery. Most fun I've had in awhile, let me have some more fun at roller derby Saturday!

so much snow my friend lost her min pin.

i was gonna say verne troyer got lost, but i wasn't sure if little people jokes were acceptable...

Didn't measure, but must be well over a foot.

never enough! how about a blizzard?

Enough snow to make unlimited snow cones for the entire state of New York!

Today, according to the weatherman, I got 29.54 inches of snow.

((14 x 3)+18)/4= how many inches of snow i got :)

So much that Tim Drawbridge stopped prancing. For a second. Maybe.

enough to make me sore from shoveling

Looks like between 10" and a foot on my porch.

we got about 9 inches...too much in my opinion!

Not enough to close my office, but enough for it to take me an hour to get there when my usual commute is 23 minutes. I guess it didn't help that my car weighs about 12 pounds.

Any amount is too much....

Had enough to make a massive hill of snow in the yard for my daughter to ride her sled on.

Enough to get me excited about hitting the slopes!

enough to work from home for the day... but also enough to slip on while shoveling and sprain my ankle.

I've found that anecdotes from neighbors, friends, or internet "strangers" can only take you so far. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend you get out there and visit these schools during the school year, during the school day to get a feel for things. In the last few months, my wife and I have made a series of visits to our local elementary, middle + high-school. During those visits, we had the chance to talk to multiple teachers and see the kids "in action". It was very VERY telling in a lot of ways - both good and bad.
