We ended our regular season with a bang! Hosting Lapeer’s Demolitia Derby Queens. Final official score of 303 to 84, wow! As we head into summer we wanted more derby, so watch on our schedule page for our up coming summer scrimmages. We are not only selling tickets, but derby gals and guys are welcome to sign up to play, ref, or volunteer! We are looking forward to derby all summer long! The final boutdown also saw the end of an era as the newest WFTDA rule set changed our “bouts” to “games”. So moving forward, we hope to see you at all our games! and of course we are currently recruiting, so if you got bit by that derby bug, come drop in on us, we will hook ya up.
What a blast!! This double header will go down in history!! What amazing talent! Love supporting the Mens Roller derby. BIG BIG thanks to everyone who came out tonight to watch or participate in one way or another!! Be sure to check out Facebook for the pictures, lots of fun costumes 🙂 If you were o so unfortunate as to miss this amazing event you have ONE LAST CHANCE! EDG will have their season closer on June 7th and tickets are available now from BPT (see link on main page) or from your favorite Derby Girl! Hope to see you there!
We had such a huge skater response to March 15th that we decided to to take all the skaters that signed up. This made some big teams, so why not play MORE derby? The girls played an awesome game consisting of 40 minute halves instead of the normal 30 minutes. More Derby, woohoo!! A great time was had by all and there sure were a lot of smiles, in the crowd and on the bench. We at Eastside try our best to host some amazing scrimmages 🙂 Check out or May 4th scrimmages! We will be having not one, but 2 bouts! One for the ladies and one for the guys! If you haven’t seen men’s derby yet you will want to check this out! And why May the 4th? Why, because that is Star Wars day!! The Skaters, refs, and NSOs all get in on the theme, and we welcome the crowd to do the same!
Some fun from last year
