Roller disco... gotta love it!
To celebrate my birthday late last year I travelled to Gawler to skate at the Recreation Centre with a dear friend on a Friday night.
I had memories of going to Modbury Skateline in my teens, skating to Top 40 music and having a great time.
I wanted to see if this activity would still delight at, ahem, 35 years old.
It didn't disappoint.
We hired our skates and did a lap or two. Unfortunately, my first pair of skates were straight out of the eighties and they reminded me of a wonky shopping trolley so I swapped them for another pair.
It didn't take long to remember what to do and we were soon chatting and laughing, singing to the music and exercising under the lights of the disco ball :-)
One of our concerns prior to arrival was whether we would be the only adults present. Yep, we were worried about looking out place and a bit gooby amongst the children and teenagers.
Thankfully, our concerns were unfounded. There was plenty of adults there on a Friday night...many of them highly skilled (and fast!) doing their thing during the "Experienced Skaters Only!" session. There were others adults just having fun, many with their kids.
If you love roller skating or roller disco, I highly recommend a trip to the Gawler Rec Centre. You can read about the cost and different skating sessions on the council website.
I'll be back!
