October 21st Home Game and Summer 2017 Recap!

The past few months have been awesome for Green Mountain Roller Derby. The summer started with us visiting Rockport, Maine, home of the Rock Coast Rollers, for the Coastal Chaos tournament. There, we took home third place, and had a ton of fun doing so! We played three games, and probably the most memorable was playing against Gothenburg Roller Derby from Gothenburg, Sweden. While we did not win that game, we were mesmerized by their skill and teamwork which gave us new skills and goals to work towards.

With teamwork in mind, during our off season, we focused on doing fun activities together. Anywhere from skating local bike paths to trying out a boxing class. You may have also seen several skaters rolling in parades in Central Vermont and Burlington.

As summer is coming to an end, we are gearing up for our fall season!

On October 21, 2017 at 6pm, we are taking on the Bay State Punishers of Fitchburg, MA. Ranked at 148, this game is one you don’t want to miss. Bay State Punishers are known to be heavy hitters, and we are ready to step up to the challenge. Tickets are available online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3093126 or from your favorite skater. Also make sure to keep an eye out for several skaters making their Grade A Fancy debut!
