A million thanks to all who helped with SnowBRAWL!

We had a blast! We couldn’t have done it without all of our volunteers, fans, and sponsors… or without the fabulous skaters from the Richmond Derby Demons and the Rocktown Rollers.

We collected a TON of food for area food banks thanks to the amazing efforts of everyone involved.

If you came out to Expoland, we hope you had a blast! And if you didn’t… we hope to see you next time for more derby action! In the meantime, check out the write-up in the Newsleader!

–November 3, 2009

There are so many people that the Dames want to thank for their help making Daylight Slayings a huge success. If we miss you, it’s not because we don’t appreciate you, because we are truly thankful for everyone who helped us get to this point!

Thanks to:

  • Northside Stranglers- Coach Groper Cleavage, and to the skaters, thank you so much for coming out and skating on our slippery floor! You are awesome and we love you all!
  • Our fresh meat that helped with everything, many coming in at noon and not leaving til it was all over! You all are awesome and we can’t wait until you’re on the rink with us!
  • The Referees and NSOs. We couldn’t have a bout without you and we’re so thankful for you all, many of whom traveled pretty far to come help us out.
  • Troch, coach of Rocktown Rollers, for loaning us their track and for all the moral support he’s offered!
  • Demolition Durga for making the drive from Richmond to co-announce.
  • Andy Waldeck for doing the lighting
  • Lea Calvani’s mom for manning the ticket booth!
  • Jasper, Isaac and Mad Mountin’ Mama’s sister, Jennifer Molinary, for helping with moving things whenever asked all day and all night!
