Weekly Roundup: May 21 - 28

Hey Derbyverse! Sorry this is a day late, the holiday festivities got me busy! I went back to my home league CoMo Roller Derby and got to play a special game with some other home-comers, who happen to be some of my bffs!

Also, did you catch my latest video about the trip to Udder Chaos?

Nox Note: Oh... I didn't realize Your Mom Men's Roller Derby was back in action. The team disbanded a year or so ago but it looks like they're back and have decided to keep the name. Interesting. 


MVP of the Week:  Sun State Roller Derby

Not only did they just rebrand themselves to Roller Derby rather than Roller Girls (yay!!), but they also have some real cool merch out! I love when leagues step away from basic merch and let their team personality shine! 


Photographer Highlight: M2 PHOTOGRAPHY

Udder Chaos was a tournament full of great derby and M2 captured it al! I am personally very thankful because there weren't very many pics from my team from the tournament, but this amazing photog gave me one of my favorite derby pics of myself/my pack. I can't wait to buy a print!
