Mardi Gras Massacre Scrimmage

On February 25, some of our team went up to Midland to play in the Chemical City Derby Girls’ Mardi Gras Massacre Scrimmage. Motor City Kitty, Aitch Bomb, Salty DeMeanher, and Hell’s Bellez worked together on team green and Sinister Storm and DestroyHer worked on team purple in a friendly battle.  We were happy to play with many of our friends from other teams, such as the Flint City Derby Girls and Lansing Derby Vixens. It was a close game, with many a derby kiss given along the way. But in the end team green won. We all had a ton of fun and learned a great deal. Bellez even got MVP Jammer (much to her surprise)!  We can’t wait for another chance to play with CCDG soon.

Anyone Can Do It

Tech

I laced up my skates for the first time just a short seven months ago, and yes, I still have an unbelievable amount to learn, but at the same time I have come so very far already. One aspect of roller derby that I’ve really enjoyed is simply telling people that I play roller derby and trying to recruit people. Everyone seems to have one of two reactions; they’re either shocked that I play derby, or they think that they could never play. They think they can’t play because they’re a mom, or they’re too old, or they work full time, or this, or that, and so on. And so I would like to show people that roller derby is for everyone (even those who don’t want to play can learn to ref or NSO).
