2011 in Review

-The Season-
RTR scheduled a challenging bouting season in preparation for becoming an official league of the WFTDA.  
We fought hard, learned a lot, and made a lot of great friends throughout the region during our 11 games.
In July, we were rewarded with official membership into the WFTDA.
Be on the look out for our 2012 season - to be released soon!

-The League-
Although RTR said goodbye to some wonderful players due to new careers and life events, we also picked up some wonderful new ones. 
New Skaters:  Rosie the Retaliator, Revenga d'Nerd, Smashley Wheel'ams, and Cheetah Chrome.  
Fresh Meat:  there are just too many to list!!!  But be on the look out, because they are learning fast and you will definitely see some new faces in 2012!
Officials:  our officiating crew is one of the best in the area!  Big thanks to our Referees Bishop (now with River City Rollergirls), Rocktimus Prime, Canadian Breakin', Art Vandalay, Starecrow, and our officials Sanity Claws and VanGO Berzerk.
EMTs: we love our EMTS Bobby and Christina from Staunton/Augusta Rescue Squad!

Want to join us as a skater?  Referree?  Non-skating official or volunteer?
Our next "Try it Out" Open House is Sunday, 1/15 6:30pm-8:30 pm at Funky's Skate Center in Harrisonburg.

-The Service-
RTR had a great time volunteering this year!  Highlights include:  cleaning Blacks Run River, Meals on Wheels, United Way's Stuff the Bus and helping at the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
Of course we are also grateful for the opportunity we had to raise money for the following charities:  Gus Bus Reading Road Show, Mercy House, Meals on Wheels, Wounded Warriors Project, Cat's Cradle, Shenandoah Spay/Neuter Clinic, Stuff the Bus and the Staunton/Augusta Rescue Squad.

-The Support-
We are incredibly grateful for the local businesses who offered their financial support to help us fund our practice space and travel expenses this year!

Lastly, but certainly not least, we had an amazing group of photographers who helped capture the moments of our bouts this year.  We can't thank you enough for donating your time and talent to our league!
