Happy fall, everyone! Now that we're firmly in pumpkin spice season, it's time for summer review.

I'm happy to announce that Burnyoulli’s Evasion, Cyanide and Henny Dreadful all passed first assessments this summer! Our contact skaters group has been a little bit more flush lately. You may be able to see Cyanide scrimmage for the first time in the October 20th bout, so check it out (get your tickets here)!

We've also had a few newbies come check us out and we're so psyched that Mikaela and Glamour have become regular skaters at our practices. They have been absolutely killing it on the track.

Oh, and Katlyn has chosen her derby name. Introducing Mighty Mouse! 

 Major thanks to Full Metal Annie for hosting our derby watch party at her house! Fun times were had.

Bouts

Our members made appearances at two PVRD vs. the World bouts this summer. On June 16th, Cryptic Kablam (GMRD),  Stylizer, Pussy Venom, Rad and Back Breaker Bane skated for Team World. VMRD’s own Golden Snatch came along too and bench coached for the first time. She did a great job!

We revisited the Bunker on August 11th with Rad, Bane, Klitorisk (GMRD) and Pope as the World coach. PVRD won both bouts, but the team spirit on Team World was strong and morale was high.

Pussy, Bane, Rad and Legz (NEKRD) also skated in a Casco Bay vs. the World bout at NHRD in Machester, NH. Stylizer skated against us with Casco Bay in anticipation of his move to Portland, Maine. Casco Bay won by a pretty huge margin, but it was definitely a good time!

And last but not least, Mighty and Rad went down to Manchester again for a fun Dinos vs. Humans-themed scrimmage. Check out the footage here: https://vimeo.com/282863794 (Go Team Humans!)

We are having a fundraising bake sale on October 20th at the Williston information center on I-89 Northbound. Come visit us. Some of us are also very much looking forward to the All Night Derby Affair at Pioneer Valley Roller Derby on October 6th. And of course, don’t forget the GMRD family feud bout, also on October 20th. That’s all for now, folks.
