There's some cool shots in that gallery Chris.  Looks like a fun time.

Thanks Keith. It's a lot of fun. Here are some from last night against the Salina Sirens.

By the way, I tried something different this time. Slow shutter with rear curtain sync. some of them turned out ok but I need more practice, and maybe a tripod next time. :)

#10 is my favorite.   Please take me along some time.  This looks like fun.

Thanks Dave. I like that one too. #7 was kind of neat but not exactly what I was hoping for. How could I have made it more like a speeding bullet and less ghostly? The Gazette printed one of my derby photos in today's sports section too.

The next bout is Saturday the 5th doors open at 6pm derby starts at 7. Tickets are $10 in advance $13 at the door, if they don't sell out again.

Here's everything you need to know:

They haven't asked me to photograph this event yet but I plan to be there anyway. Come on out. Bring a lawn chair.
