Hey, Everybody!

It was a month full of fun not only for us but for our fans as well.

First off, we had our Triple Header last Saturday at the Cypress Centre, as first we had our junior Pilot Lights taking on their western rivals Udder Annihilation. It was a hard fought contest filled with hard walls and sweet jammer action, but when it was all said and done, the Pilot Lights came out with the 389-272 victory over Udder Annihilation.

Next up, was the Gas City Regulators taking on a pick-up team that have dubbed themselves the "Storm Troopers" Their jammers were fast, and even despite their namesake, their hits were hard and accurate. They were too much to handle, and they Imperial Cruise to a 132-114 victory.

Then it was the Main Event: The Gas City Rollers were prepped and ready to take on the Honey Badgers from Swift Current. The badgers entered the building ready for a fight, they fought well and hard but the Force was with the Rollers as they went on to beat the badgers to the tune of 186-129.

We would like to thank our fans and sponsors for supporting us and watching the game, and also to the Honey Badgers and Udder Annihilation who are the Sith to our Jedi. and to all the Storm Troopers for coming out, joining forces, and whooping our booties. And without our Referees and NSO's this couldn't be possible. Thank you all, for making these matches happen.

Also, congratulations go out to Darren Jacques for winning our basket full of booze and Harley Davidson merch. Thank you for supporting roller derby.

Roller Derby 101

The Sunday after the match, we opened up to people who wanted to learn more about roller derby, and probably do a skate around. Though they started out like Bambi on ice, soon they'll get used to their skates and sooner or later, they will join the ranks of the best derby team in town. And if you still want to get a piece of the action, Come to one of our Fresh Meat practices. Sunday afternoons at 1:30 PM in either the Curling Club or the Cypress Centre. Check the Schedule for more details.

Tigers Table

On March 9, The Medicine Hat Tigers invited the Gas City Rollers to promote their game and Fresh Meat Intake and also sell tickets for our Harley Davidson basket raffle. There were plenty of Tigers fans that were there and we had extra fun talking sports and derby with each and every one of you. So from Gas City to the Tigers, thank you very much, and we'll look forward to working with you next season.

And if you want to know, the Tigers were playing the Prince Albert Raiders and won 4-3. Go Tigers Go.

Coming Up...

The Rollers and Regulators are taking a bit of a break this season as the Rollers prep for two tournaments in May as the Rollers will compete in Hellz Jezebel Memorial Tournament in Lethbridge, and later on that month, Flat Track Fever! The grandest roller derby tournament in the province. We're looking forward to whooping ass in May.

As for our Pilot Lights, they go on the road to Swift Current to take on the Ra Ra Riots on April 23.
