We wish you all Gentle Readers out there the Merriest and the Happiest.  Share the spirit of the season and be glad to one and all.

The Road Goes On and On – September 2018

It has been a long long road on this derby adventure. Just in: The land of ice and  snow Iceland beckoned us again and met up with the Honky Tonk Heartbreakers of Texas Rollergirls playing Team Ragnarok in Reykjavik.

(Previously On the Road: Love will tear us apart and The Factory. Back again to where the gods of Ragnarok play. Back to Canada for the ten years of derby home opener at Tri-City.  Then Detroit Roller Derby concludes the season with the home team Championship at Detroit Roller Derby. Just when we thought we were out, Ohio dragged us back into the playoffs.)
