Saturday October 19 was a big day for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls, with no shortage of fun being had by many of our league members. One of our favorite people, the sweetest Sugar herself, Daisey Danger was married to her longtime beau, Joey, at an intimate and beautiful ceremony in South Denver. Many members of her home team, the Sugar Kill Gang, were there to celebrate Daisey and Joey’s big day. Everyone looked amazing and a great time was had by all in attendance.
The only downfall? Being at Daisey’s wedding meant missing the wedding of ANOTHER Rocky skater, none other than Dooms Daisies’ Devilz Huntress, who celebrated her marriage with a ranch BBQ and no shortage of other skater friends in attendance. Apparently there just aren’t enough days in the year to celebrate all the love in this league separately!
Yet another faction of Rocky found itself promoting the league and getting spooky on South Broadway, when they attended the S. Broadway Halloween parade. Skaters took to the streets to share the derby love and promote the Halloween-themed mix-ups and the upcoming Home Team Champs games.
But all merriment was in moderation for members of RMRG’s Contenders, because they knew the had some serious work to do on Sunday morning. At 11:30 Sunday morning, The Contenders faced off against the L.A. Renegades in their final travel team game of the season. The Renegades were in town for a game against Denver Roller Derby’s Standbys, and took the opportunity to squeeze in a “hangover” bout with Rocky (safe to say, that title was more apt than ever). The Renegades squeaked out a win over the Contenders, but if you factor in fun, Conts took the gold! The Contenders would like to give a special THANK YOU to all of the skaters and volunteers who showed up to officiate the game and make things run smoothly. Special guest coaches, including retired skater Carmen Slamdiego (AKA Ho J, AKA Fat Elvis), and the always lovely Peach joined current boss ladies Coacheena and Emma to round out a bench staff that kept things running smoothly on the sidelines. The skaters love and appreciate you all so much! This was the final travel game of the season, so if you want more derby action, don’t miss our league games coming up this Saturday!
