Skating with the Stars

April 11, 2013

Last Saturday Blackwater took on the veterans of Blue Stone Roller Derby in a co-ed head-to-head battle. Blackwater started the first jam with an early lead, but several Blue Stone  power jams would ultimately propel Blue Stone ahead of Blackwater leading to a final score of 212 to 119.

By the end of the bout the teams we bruised, beat, tired, and ready for more! Both teams had a fantastic time in their first co-ed bout of the season and were asking for more by the end. MVP awards were given to Appomattox’s own Mighty Mouse and Art Vandelay for their stellar performances jamming and blocking. The night was also special for another reason; the rollers celebrated the birthdays of Dangerazz and Luci van Damsel during half time and again after the bout at El Cazador.  Blackwater wants to give a big thank you to the El Cazador staff for being great hosts for the after party!

A portion of all proceeds went to help Lynchburg Grows, an urban sustainable farm in Lynchburg. Thank you fans for helping us continue to support  Lynchburg area non-profits as well as supporting local roller derby. Blackwater continues to open recruitment to all who are interested. Practice is Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:30 to 8:30 at AJ’s Skateworld in Appomattox. The first practice and free and  the gear is provided so what do you have to lose? If you have any questions contact us on our Facebook page or email!
Keep calm and derby on!
