What a bout! Though the Killah Bees topped the Yankee Brutals (160-90) the Stepford Sabotage came back to defeat Providence’s Rhode Island Riveters 184-152! This was the first time Sab has beaten the Riveters, and it was a hard-fought win. Thanks to all who came (to play and to watch) and hopefully we’ll see you at our June 9 bout, where the Stepford Sabotage will take on the Hellions of Troy and the Connecticut Death Quads will face the Capital District Trauma Authority.

Tomorrow night, 8-10! Come skate with a rollergirl at Rollermagic in Waterbury! $6.50 gets you in the door (skate rental is extra) to shake, rattle and roll with your favorite ladies on 8 wheels (and maybe some of our favorite rollerdudes) as they gear up for their June 9 home double-header. Don’t miss it!
Have you registered for CTRG’s Derby in Derby 5K yet? If a horde of psychotic derby ladies cheering you on doesn’t make you run faster, I really don’t know what will.

What are you doing Saturday night? Well cancel your date and tell your mama that you’ll be out late because it’s BOUT NIGHT! What happens when the third smallest state (that’s us, geography nerds) takes on the tiniest state in all of the US? We’re about to find out! First up, the Yankee Brutals will challenge Providence Roller Derby’s Killah Bees, and then the Stepford Sabotage will face PRD’s Rhode Island Riveters. As ever, we’ve got your favorite vendors, beer, snacks (can we talk for a minute about the Walnut Beach Creamery and their insane cupcake ice cream? I mean DAMN, y’all.), as well as special guests from Girls Inc. of Southwestern CT, and OH YEAH some new and improved parking at CSC. You won’t want to miss the afterparty at the Winchester, our brand new new afterparty spot, just a hop, skip, and a jump from CSC.
CTRG is proud to offer the CT RollerGirls Cindy Luberto Scholarship, a $500 non-renewable scholarship intended to benefit a woman student athlete in recreational, community, or school athletics. Further information and eligibility requirements can be found on our website, so check it out, pass it on, and send in your applications today!
