My favorite ladies; the Tilted Thunder Rail Birds will be having their first bout at the Comcast Event Center in Everett on December 4th and I could not be more proud of everyone!
There has been such work, determination, pride, heartbreak, support and friendships and I’m so honored to have the opportunity to see this growth.
With Seattle Roller Derby there will be an opportunity for men to form groups too, but there is something about derby that brings together women in a way that is unique to any other sport I’ve ever seen.
I want to continue to collect data and information so we can help leagues everywhere get more funding and have proof that the benefits of derby have not yet been recognized by most of the world.
So far taking this path of trying to bring opportunity has been fascinating and hard, with alot of questioning about whether or not it is the right thing to be doing, but I keep coming back to getting out of my own way to let this happen.
Today I spent the day organizing legal documents for three entirely different situations; ALL of them life altering depending on the outcome. After getting back from the post office I put on my skates, painted, worked on the SRD website and felt really grateful to be here today.
We’re all in this together.
