First Roller Derby Bout EVER!

Well folks, it was AWESOME!

I must say that our first ever bout against the Jaded Misfits in Bluefield WV was a great experience!

We skated against several well seasoned skaters, and in the choas and excitment we made a few mistakes here and there.

The final result, JM 162 to RTR 58.

Personally, I feel this is a win for the girls! To see them skate the way they did in thier first bout against seasoned skaters, they did one heck if a great job!

Practice has geared up, we have 4 new ladies that we are working on training as well!

We have our first HOME bout on April 26th against the Charlottesville Derby Dames. Both teams are new and fresh and it will be a great event to see some derby action!

Keep posted to see photos of the JM vs RTR bout, once they are all in we'll have them on the site and a few here as well!
