Hey, y’all. It’s time for the CTRG Scholarship for Women Athletes again!
Deadline is May 1, 2013. Application form and printable flyers available at the website!
The CT RollerGirls are raising money to send their WFTDA charter team to Spring Roll in May! We’re sending a 16-person roster and two of our twenty* coaches all the way to Indiana to (hopefully) kick some butt and take some names at this 3-day tournament. Give some love and you can get all kinds of stuff in return. Plus! CTRG is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, so a portion of your donation is tax deductible! Help a derby girl out!
*maybe it just seems like twenty
We’re just one month away from the start of the 2013 season, and you would not believe how hard our skaters have been training. Folks are working with personal trainers, some are going to kettle ball classes and boot camps, and last week I saw Your Mom pulling a car around the parking lot by a rope between her teeth. On Saturday, VelociSlaptHer and Botti Slam will take things a step too far and will swim in the Long Island Sound for the West Haven Icy Plunge for the Cure. These ladies are dedicated.
Our first game will be 2/23 at the CT Sports Center in Woodbridge. The DC All-Stars (Division I) are coming up to challenge the Stepford Sabotage, and the Queen City Cherry Bombs will face off against the Yankee Brutals. There will be PBR beer, cupcakes, and probably a few beatings. More info about the 2/23 game at http://ctrollerderby.net/events/02-23-2013/, and season tix are available at http://ctrollerderby.net/2013-season-and-vip-passes-now-available/
Also this week, happy birthday to Toughie, Fred Perrywinkle, and C. Mya Rage!!!

Well you can still see all the action here! CTRG was represented in all 3 scrimmages - see if you can spot your favorite skaters!
Scrimmages 1 and 2 were composed of teams of B and C team skaters from all over the region (New York! Massachusetts! Rhode Island! And of course all three Connecticut leagues!), and scrimmage 3 features coed teams of WFTDA travel team skaters and some of the many handsome dudes of MRDA!

Thanks so much to Shoreline Roller Derby for putting this on and letting us co-host - it was a blast, and (even better) the derby community raised five thousand actual dollars for the United Way Sandy Hook Support Fund!
Shoreline Roller Derby and the CT Rollergirls are teaming up Saturday for a coed scrimmage to benefit Sandy Hook Elementary. Connecticut roller derby: kicking butts for a good cause!

What a night! LIRR took the win over the Yankee Brutals with a final score of 322-53, and in home team action, the Bone Crushers bested the Widowmakers in another last jam nailbiter (150-146), clinching their spot in our November 10th championship doubleheader! Thanks to all the fans and superfans who came out, and superextradoubleturbo thanks to Monkey Brains and Sabatage Sabal, visiting skaters from HARD, who busted their humps all night for the Widowmakers!
