We are really looking forward to seeing our Burning River All-Stars skate against Tri-City Roller Girls this Friday at 10am!  Here is some tournament information for you!  Also – if you haven’t made a donation to our Burning River All-Stars fund – there is still time!    Thank you to everyone who has made a contribution!!!
All bouts will be webcast live from Kzoo is in the Eastern time zone, so there won’t be the annoying time conversions that D2 watchers had to deal with last weekend.
This is probably the easiest place to find quick schedule info and game scores as the tournament progresses.


This is the tournament home page on It has the tourney bracket with game times, seeding information, etc.
Anybody who’s interested in some friendly sports betting can enter the Bracket Bonanza with their predictions of tournament results. Winners get some prizes, but it’s also fun to see what other people have entered and do a little friendly competition with people you know.

Well, you’ve been tapped.  We’ve sent you a personal message.  Go check it.  It’s your time to see what you are made of – TRYOUTS!

Yes.  You’ve been thinking about it.  You’ve been working out.  You’ve been talking to others.  You are probably watching D2 playoffs right now and have filled out all of the Cheeseball Brackets.  Because you want to change your life.  And that’s what skating does: it changes your life.

We all come to roller derby for different reasons.  Some people want to get in shape.  Some people are looking for friends.  Some people want to challenge themselves to leave the house again.  Whatever the reason – now is your chance.

Tryouts are on Wednesday August 21 from 6:45 pm to 10:00 pm.  All the details can be found on our facebook event page.

So – what are you waiting for?  Live your life without regrets.  Live your life as if you don’t have this chance again.  What do you have to lose?
