Skater of the Month: Motorbutt

This month, the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls are excited to announce the first Skater of the Month for 2018: Motorbutt!

Motorbutt joined Rocky Mountain Rollergirls as a newbie skater in 2013 and made quick work of making a name for herself on the track. She trained hard and was skills-tested within a year, getting drafted to the Red Ridin’ Hoods and rostered for Project Mayhem games in 2014. In 2016, she became an integral part of the blocking core for The Contenders. Unfortunately, Motorbutt sustained an injury at the end of 2016, which also put her out for the majority of 2017. But, with the same tenacity we see in her on the track, Motorbutt tackled her injury and came back as if no time had passed. We’re excited to see what’s in store for her derby career in 2018!

And, if you think her “track record” is impressive, just take a look at what she does for the league off the track! Motorbutt has been a member of Rocky Mountain Rollergirls Board of Directors for the past 2 years, and is now beginning her 3rd year in that role. Last year, she took on the task on scheduling all league practices, which was quite the feat, coordinating with 4 different practice locations. She has also helped lead the charge in finding a new practice and bouting warehouse for Rocky Mountain Rollergirls, which we look forward to moving into at some point this year. Rocky Mountain Rollergirls are beyond lucky to have Motorbutt at one of our beloved leaders and teammates!

Skater of the Month: Carmen Slamdiego

This month RMRG would like to give a special shout out to our long time league member, Carmen Slamdiego (AKA Ho J. Simpson)!
Rocky Mountain Rollergirls team “The Sugar Kill Gang” are known for their sweetness. RMRG has one Sugar, Carmen Slamdiego (AKA Ho J. Simpson), who receives the award “Sweetest Sugar” consistently, and rightly so. Even after a long day of work, Carmen’s smile will shine brightly before and after practice.
Carmen joined RMRG 11 years ago in 2006, and Carmen’s natural speed set her apart as a gifted jammer. She expertly juked and sprinted around the track, skating with the top travel teams – Fight Club early in her derby career until 2010 and later the Contenders until 2013. During her time with RMRG, Carmen trained RMRG’s newest skaters. As an experienced teacher outside the derby world, Carmen used her teaching skills to help newbies increase in strength and skating skills on the track.  Currently, she works with RMRG Alumni Committee to ensure skaters that have left skating do not lose touch with RMRG.
With great sadness we announce Carmen, or Ho J as she will always affectionately be known, will hang up her skates in October after 11 years of skating.  Throughout those 11 years of skating she has touched many lives. We will miss her beyond what words can describe.

Skater of the Month: Dr. Dane Borman

This month RMRG would like to give a special shout out to our long time partner, Dr. Dane Borman!

Dr. Borman, or The Crack Dealer, as he is affectionately known, has been providing his chiropractic services to the league since 2010. Not only does he see skaters at his practice in south Denver, he takes time out of his busy schedule to set up at games and Sunday morning practices. Whether it’s quick adjustment or assessing the need for more in-depth care, Dane takes the time to listen to each and every person that approaches his table. Although he does not don the quads and take the track with us, he is an integral part of our league and we are so happy to have him. Yay Dr. Borman!
