Hey there Derbyverse, it’s Nox, welcome to the Weekly Roundup for April 8th - 15th, 2019


Who has a parade coming up on the league calendar? Check out my video from last year with some of my best advice!! ^



This weeks’ derby new cycle was centered largely on Euroderby! Crime City made a public statement on the WFTDA’s locations for post-season, Eurocup happened and Rainy became the first EU team to beat London! This we also were blessed with some great resources for officials from Sven (Tournament Survival for Announcers) and from the British Champs blog (How To Read a Stats Book). And Rose City shared a great and highly-requested resource for getting grants so def check that one out, too!

There were several games this weekend between EuroCup, Cactus Cup, Skate to Thrill, and more! Check below for the scores for those three tournaments and available game archives!

MVP of the Week: The Crowd at EuroCup

When one of the Helsinki jammers hit her head SO BAD HER HELMET CRACKED! She did sustain a minor concussion but luckily that’s all (not minimizing concussions, just think that it could have been WAY worse)! And the crowd took donations to get her a new helmet. HOW GREAT IS THAT? (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ MVPS FOR ALL OF U

Fundraiser Highlight: Rage City

“This year, the All Stars will be traveling to Missouri and Wisconsin for 5 total games. This is where you come in. We need your help to fund our travels and work our way to the North America West Continental Cup. The team typically spends approximately 15,000 per tournament in funds we’ve raised over the course of the year, but, mostly it just comes out of our pockets. 
With your help, we’ll be able to alleviate some of the financial burden on our skaters. Thank you in advance for your support! “
