The “Off Season”

December 23, 2011

Christmas Parade 2011
People always ask us when is our derby “season”.  We laugh because there is not a real off season but if we had to have one, we suppose this would be it!  We are taking a couple weeks off to spend the holidays with our familes and friends who so graciously support our derby habit throughout the rest of the year.  But we have been hard at work since we saw you all for our last bout.  First, we had a recruitment period by opening up our practices specifically geared for new skaters, or “fresh meat” as we call them. (If you are still interested in joining us, email us at blackwaterrollers@yahoo.com for more info.)   Those practices went amazing!  We had no idea there was still so much talent out there!  We have an awesome group of new skaters who have picked up the sport faster than we have ever seen.  It makes us more excited than ever for the start of our 2012 season.  Strawberry Kills Forever and Naughty Nini have taken over the roles of captains in turning these freshies into fierce derby girls and they have been doing an incredible job.  Be looking for this group of girls to shine in 2012.  We have high hopes for them and love having them apart of our derby family.

Speaking of the 2012 season, our schedule is now up!  Check it out and check back often for more details about each bout.  We have some new teams and familiar faces to round out our schedule and can’t wait to see what the new year brings us! 

We also skated through the cobblestone street of downtown Lynchburg in the annual Christmas parade.  Over 2000 fliers were passed out along with a truck load of candy.  Thanks to all the fans who were out there saying hi!  It brings joy to our hearts that every time we are out oin public, more and more people know about us.  Thanks for spreading the word and helping us grow!  Continue to help us in that quest by friending us on facebook and suggesting your friends so that same.  We are looking forward to working hard and kicking some derby butt in the ’12!  Until then, blessings to you and yours.
 
Derby hugs and slugs,
The Blackwater Rollers
