Fundraiser Highlight:

Help get Invader Sin to Barcelona 2018

"I am an official from Richter City in New Zealand. I have been asked to join the Stats Nerd team at the MRDWC 2018. This will be my first trip to Europe too.

My history: I have been involved in derby since 2012. I have skated and NSO'd at The Great Southern Slam, I have officiated all over New Zealand and at Royal Rumble.  I recently helped co-ordinate NZ's first Sanctioned Tournament, Quake, Battle & Roll and served as GTO for the first time. Following QBR, I was GTO at the NZ Top 10 Champs weekend. This past year I transitioned from skater to ref trainee and Ref co-ordinator for my league."
