Destination: Derby is still looking for more people to apply as participants for the 2015 derby road trip through the United States journey next August. The team is hoping to have a total of 5 skaters, 3 officials (skating and/or non-skating), a coach and an assistant join them. Application deadline to join as a participant is set for August 30, 2014 with the final roster being announced on September 15.
Confirmed leagues that the group will visit include Electric City Roller Grrlz in Great Falls, Montana, Hellgate Rollergirls in Missoula, Montana, Coal Miner’s Daughters in Gillette, Wyoming, Happy Valley Derby Darlins in Spanish Fork, Utah, and TXRD in Austin, Texas. All 5 of these leagues were previously confirmed for the 2014 journey, which was unfortunately postponed due to injuries sustained by participants and a number of other unforeseeable circumstances.
Personally, I’m pumped for the trip. I’m excited to write about here on the blog and I also plan to bring along a video camera to film the trip for the purpose of putting together a small documentary of it. It will focus on the trip through the perspective of EZ Bruiser and I as we learn more about the game in its various incarnations, experience all of these communities and hear the stories of various derby folk across the US.
For more information, check out the Destination: Derby official blog and follow their Facebook page. If you have any questions about the application process, or to send yours in today, email email@example.com.
Don’t forget! The deadline is AUGUST 30, 2014, so if you are even a little bit interested make sure you look into it ASAP and get your application in before it’s too late!
