Harrisonburg? Rocktown? Which is it?

Talking with some derby girls in our travels, and even locals in town, they have asked "Why are you the RockTownRollers? You live in Harrisonburg?"

Well, Harrisonburg, use to be called Rocktown. A few years back the Daily News Record, our local paper, started a weekly publication that targeted the downtown area and the youth culture of the city, they call it The Rocktown Weekly.

So, when the time came to get a Derby name, RockTownRollers just had a ring to it. Simple.

Here is a link to the City's page with a little more history for those that want to know!
