BLOCK OF AGES Results // GCRDA @ Live Free Skate Hard // GCRDA Remembers

Hello, Derby folks. I got lots to update you on so hold on tight:

First off, the Gas City Roller Derby Association debuted next door at the Cypress Centre Fieldhouse a few weeks ago, and it was a doubleheader with the Pilot Lights taking on the Ra-Ra-Riots. The match was a high scoring affair as both teams' jammers were speeding past the pack, but when it was all said and done, the Pilot Lights came away with the 302-205 victory.

Next was the main event as the Gas City Regulators took on the Redneck Betties in the second of a home-at-home series between the two teams. Gas City wanted to get themselves some revenge after that defeat a couple of weeks ago. It was certainly close and high energy, but once the clock hit zero, the Redneck Betties manage to squeak past the Regulators 174-150.

We would like to thank all of the volunteers, refs, and NSO's for taking their time to making this match happen. Without you there would be no match. As well, we would like to thank the fans and sponsors. Roller derby costs money and thanks to you guys, we can give to you hard hitting roller derby action.
Live Free Skate Hard

Several Gas City Rollers, Pilot Lights, and a few NSO's took part in the 2016 Live Free Skate Hard invitational in Lethbridge, Alberta. There was plenty of interesting events that happened: The Co-Ed bout featured Gas City's own Bashin Bindi and Dodger Balls as they were on opposite sides. Phaye-Tality added to her experience as she partook in both the Rookie and Advanced bouts, and the Pilot Lights' own Hawabunga having fun with other junior players. Also there there was TimTation and Slym Shadow rocking Team NSO and Dodger Balls doing his part with Team Zebra. All in all, good times, and great games were had. Thanks, Lethbridge. Can't wait until next year.

Gas City Remembers

On behalf of GCRDA, we would like to thank all military service men and women for making their sacrifice for us on this Remembrance Day. Without our military, we probably will not have this wonderful and empowering sport of roller derby, and other things that make this country awesome. For those that have served and are serving, thank you.
