The first-ever bout of the Twin City Derby Girls was last Friday. I was lucky enough to be part of this history-making event as a skater for the ‘Paign. Our team lost to the formidable Boneyard Bombshells, but it was a hella good time. Seriously. Most. Fun. Ever. I had a *lot* of crowd support– tons of friends and family were there to cheer me on and it was amazing.
For a quick introduction to derby (and some shots of me on TV!), check out this piece from the local news. It was amazing to see it post-bout. The whole bar was cheering! Words don’t do it justice, so let’s have some pictures, shall we?
All photos (except the last two) by Alex Wild. He’s a wonderfully talented wildlife photographer who just happens to be married to one of our derby girls. He is just getting into sports photography and it’s a real treat to have him with us. You can see the rest of the pictures from the bout on his web site.
More derby awesomeness to come, I’m sure.
