End of Season Thankfulness

What a year we have had and how quickly it has gone by!  Our last home bout is this Saturday and this brings about lots of mixed emotions within people.  This has been a tough and trying year for the ladies and gents of Rocktown, we have had new friends join us and old friends roll away.  We have had heart-breaking losses, joyful wins and even a nail biting win by one point in overtime!  Through all of the trials and tribulations of Rocktown over the past year we have grown into a tight knit family and have many things to be thankful for.

We are thankful for our friends and families that support us through all of this.  They get left home alone or with children to care for, feed and put to bed so we can practice.  They get left home again or sit on the sidelines screaming and yelling at our bouts {because really, who knows better than your significant other how you should cream the opposing jammer!}
We are thankful to all of our sponsors and supporters who make it possible for us to do what we do.  You all help pay for our practice spaces, fund our travels, make it possible for us to give a large portion of all proceeds to charities and so many many more things.
And we are thankful for one another.  Without the bond that derby has given us many of us would have never known one another.  Instead we have found a common interest and made new extended family.  We rejoice in the happy times of one another, lend a shoulder to cry on in the tough and work through it all together.

So as this season draws to a close come help us celebrate YOU the fan, all that this year has had to offer, pick up some new RTR swag, and let's take this season out in Rocktown style!
