Rocktown Rollers Have Been Busy!

It has been a while since I had a chance to post. Me and the team have been busy with Derby! On the 4th of July we marched in the parade and won best marchers (even with a few girls on skates!)

July12th we had a bout with the Mason Dixon Roller Vixens in Hagerstown MD. The Vixens were a great group girls! We unfortunately lost to them 64 to 167. It was a good bout over all and not matter what we all had a great time!

On July 25th we hosted the Punk Rock Prom at the Artful Dodger! We were able to raise $300 for the Valley AIDS network!

And finally, this past Sunday, we traveled again to the north to bout the Harrisburg Area Roller Derby (H.A.R.D) Fallout Femmes. Talk about hard core roller derby action! Every single girl from both teams played as hard as they could! The energy was non-stop! Speed was amazing! Hits were brutal! At the end of the first period the score was neck and neck RTR 60 and FF 68!

During the second half the action got even more intense! Our jammers committed a few major penalties and were sitted in the box, costing chances for points while the Fallout Femmes's jammer snuck by our blockers. But our girls never gave up and kept giving thier all! It was no easy task for the Femmes. But in the end the Femmes won it, 168 to 115. Truly an exciting bout.

Our next bout will be at home! Aug 22nd against the New River Valley Jaded Misfists! This will be round two for the us Rocktown Rollers playing against the Misfits! we last bouted them in March, and the girls are pumped to play them again!
