Give Thanks for Roller Derby

As we near the end of our roller derby season, we’d like to reflect on how grateful we are for roller derby. We come together a few days each week to practice, have bouts, have meetings and just to hang out. 

This is what we look like on any given Sunday... we're thankful we get to play rough and have fun

We’ve made some really amazing friendships and been to some very cool places...
let's not forget the fun we had getting there!!!

Not to mention all the other very awesome teams we've played, even one from Norway!

For mothers and daughters that play derby together...
and here, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree with both of them in the box! Bad girls!

For our sponsors and vendors

For the pets that frequently come to the warehouse so we can give some fur baby lovin’

And for all the little people who are part of this roller derby family. On any given day, they can bring a smile to our faces even if we’ve been hit on the track one too many times. Got a busted lip, swollen knee, rink rash? Just look at this guy, and he’ll put a smile on your face! He may even play Roll the Skate with you.

And for teamwork, whether it's on the track, off the track, or setting up and breaking down the track!

And last but not least, we are thankful for our talent... I mean, who else can do a rainbow split besides Rainbow Blight? Right?

I hope you are thankful for derby, because we sure are! Come to the last bout of the season at 1pm on November 14th and be thankful with us!
