RECAPPING summer 2016 and ROLLING on to great fun fall events:
We were triumphant in our rematch against the honorable Battle Cats of Southshire Roller Derby in our second bout with them on August 20. Our junior teams also had a terrific expo. We are so proud of them! Many thanks to all our fans!
We loved meeting new fans and celebrating community at the Francestown Labor Day festival and parade on September 3. Thanks to everyone for coming out! Click HERE for some of the photos!
And the fun kept coming… We had a fantastic Home & Harvest weekend in Antrim, loving the friendly faces in the crowd at the parade as well as the fantastic skaters from teams across New England who came to play at our Black & White Scrimmage on September 17. If you have photos from either of these events, we’d love you to share them! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re back to offering monthly community roller skating nights at Antrim Town Gym! Our September skating night was great fun. The next one is coming up quick on Saturday, October 8 and it’s a Halloween theme! Click HERE to RSVP and invite your friends. There’s always hot concessions, beverages, snacks, cool merchandise, and a 50/50 raffle to benefit Avenue A!
Speaking of which… Did you see the article in the Ledger-Transcript about the free roller skating classes we offered in September? Cow Plow (a.k.a. Jocelynn) along with Jacqueline from Avenue A, organized a series of three classes that got eight new kids skating like pros! Super impressive!
For our women’s team (Mad Knockers), our second (can you believe it?) Fresh Meat Recruitment Night of the 2015-2016 season was held on September 12. If you missed it, you’re NOT too late to sign up! Just come to a practice, and if you need gear to borrow until you can purchase your own, just email us ahead of time (email@example.com). More info HERE.
New Skater Night for juniors (Mad Misfits) is October 24!
Click HERE for details, to RSVP and invite your friends! Open to boys and girls ages 8-17, no experience necessary. Share with a young person you know… We would love to see them there!
Finally, some bittersweet news…
This fall, we bid a very fond see-you-later to two of the greatest women in Monadnock Roller Derby’s history…
Our sincerest congratulations and good luck to Hellenator (#40ish) , who is retiring from the sport (but not our hearts!) and to Dora the Destroyer (#98MPH), who is off to her freshman year at the University of New Hampshire. This mother and daughter have been with MRD from the beginning, playing with Fife (Hellenator’s daughter, Dora’s sister) this season in one of the most fearsome family packs ever to hit the track. Come around as often as you can, girls, we will miss you like MAD!
As a nonprofit organization, we are always looking for sponsors, whose generosity supports opportunities for women and kids to play an amazing game that teaches confidence, endurance, teamwork, and community spirit. It’s easy to become a sponsor. Click HERE to learn more or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
