The Rollergirl Project: Derby City Roller Girls Edition

April 27th, 2015

BBD-2142

“Body By Derby is a figure study of active derby athletes to show the different body types of active skaters and the physical effects derby has on the players.” -therollergirlproject.blogspot.com

When Cory Layman of Body by Derby contacted us we were so honored to be featured in this series! When we found out we would be the last league, we knew we had to do the Project proud! 19 of our amazing skaters jumped at the opportunity to show off  what Derby has done for their body. Body positivity and taking care of ourselves is very important to DCRG. We hope that our entry inspires others to go after what they want, love the body they are in, and treat themselves well!

We had the pleasure of working with Cupid’s Undie Run on Valentine’s Day to help spread awareness and raise funds for the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Last year Cupid’s raised over $2.8 Million to #EndNF!! We could not be more proud to be involved in this organizations event in Louisville. The almost 1 mile run took place on 4th Street in Downtown. The festivities started at Noon and the temperatures were chilly in the 30’s with snow flurries making an appearance. Over 200 participants showed up in their best Undies and festive outfits to run through the streets and help raise money for the event! We had the pleasure of hanging out and dancing with the participants, as well as passing out the prizes they had earned, and providing assistance to the organizer where needed. The Courier-Journal covered the event and you may recognize some of the DCRG skaters. Check out their story and video here: http://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/local/2015/02/14/cupids-undies-take-street-charity/23424769/

We also had the amazing opportunity to join forces with St. Leonard School Art Students and make Valentines for Wayside Christian Mission to share with the groups that they work with! It was very fulfilling for the team to spread the love with those that may not otherwise be receiving positive wishes during this holiday. The cards ranged from homemade to store bought with special messages in them. Some of the skaters teamed up with their kids, family, and friends to make this happen!! We cannot wait to work with Wayside Christian Mission again!

2015 Season Opening Exhibition Bout

February 16th, 2015

On February 7th  the Derby City Roller Girls hosted their 2015 Season Opening Exhibition Bout at Champs Rollerdome off of La Grange Rd. The Louisville based roller derby league, known as Louisville’s Other Derby, mashed up their Allstars and the Bourbon Brawlers and redistributed them into one Black Team and one White Team for the event. Over 600 Family, Friends, and Fans poured into the rink to watch new and veteran skaters alike battle it out on their home turf.

         Although the Black and White team were competitive, everyone from both teams skated together before the Bout began and showed off some of their dance moves as an on skates dance party broke out during warm-ups. Excitement began to build as both teams exited the rink floor for their Official Entrances and the teams themes were revealed. The “Black Betties” sported matching Pinup inspired makeup and Black Athletic Stripes while The “White Stormtroopers” were led out by Darth Vader himself and sported matching bandannas that looked like their namesakes helmets!
          The White Stormtroopers dominated the first half, gaining a remarkable lead with their unstoppable Jammers and hard to pass Blockers. This did not discourage the Black Betties who continued to fight diminishing the gap between the two scores as much as they could before halftime. When returning for the second half both team were pulling out all of the stops. The Score seemed to be pinballing back and forth with almost every jam. The Last jam of the night pitted Shellnita Crutch, for the black team, and Johnnie Knocks’em, for the white team, against one another. Both Jammers fought to get past the strong walls and hip hits from the blockers in the pack but it was Johnnie Knocks’em that broke out first to gain Lead Jammer status. Johnnie and Shellnita battled it out for the full two minutes before the final whistle blew. Both Teams stood at their benches watching the scoreboard and waiting for the Official Score to be shown. When the scoreboard updated it revealed that the Black Betties had won 198 points to the White Stormtroopers 189 points. The Black bench celebrated before each team took a lap on the track high fiving fans and skaters as they went. The Black bench then invited the White bench to join them making a large circle of their entire league. They huddled together to congratulate each other on the great accomplishments they had made that day and ended their first official Bout of the season with a DCRG chant said by all.
          You can see more of DCRG at The Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday February 28th where they will be Volunteering as well as Jumping to help raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics.
