On April 16th and 17th the Garden State Rollergirls represented at the Siege of Central New York in Rome, NY. In this two-day event the GSR charter team, The Ironbound Maidens, won two of their three games boosting their national WFTDA rankings! The ‘B’ team, the Brick City Bruisers, won all three of their games and took home the B Team Champion trophy from the tournament.
As a league, the skaters all showed amazing sportsmanship and camaraderie which clearly elevated gameplay and morale on and off the track. Watch out for GSR in the next few months as our teams compete in more derby tournaments and promise only to improve in skill and cohesiveness.
On March 25, come out to Town Pub and put your very best rockstar skills on display! Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, and it’s only $5 to enter the contest! Prizes include a $25 gift card to Town Pub, front and back brakes from Sea Breeze, and tickets to our bouts.
Party will also feature DJ Chuck (of Powerhouse Productions), so you KNOW it’ll be a good time. See you there!
On February 12th the Garden State Rollergirls drafted the new Freshmeat class and transfer-skaters onto the home teams. The Northern Nightmares and the Jersey City Bridge and Pummel welcomed the new skaters with cheers and hugs, excited for a new season. During the draft a surprise was announced to the league that left eyes wide and jaws dropped. Because of an exciting increase in new skaters, GSR has expanded to have a third, brand new, home team. We’re thrilled to introduce the Gateway Grim Reapers!
