Hey there Derbyverse, it’s Nox, welcome to The Weekly Roundup!

How the heck are we already in June!? Happy Pride Month! Last year I tried to collect all the Pride themed merch/fundraisers from leagues but missed a ton! Please send me a link if your league is doing something cool!

Also huge shoutout to Bob Dunnell for the use of his fantastic photos!

Fundraiser Highlight: Help Queen City Junior Girls Get to JRDA Champs

 

The Queen City Junior Roller Girls are so proud to announce that we have qualified for JRDA Championships for the first time in the league's history! 

Our skaters have worked so incredibly hard this season and have moved up to an impressive spot in the rankings, and now we get the chance to compete against some of the top Junior teams in the world! 

We are excited about this unique opportunity but we can not do it without help. A trip to Loveland, Colorado in July is a pretty big expense for our team, and we are left with very limited time to raise funds

Any amount you are able to donate to help our team get to Colorado is so very appreciated, and is an investment in the future of this great sport of roller derby.
