Zombie's vs. Robots!

So I edited a lot of photos that have been sitting on my computer and in my camera so you will finally see some updates!

This summer we had a fun bout for the Indie Arts fest. It was an absolute blast. We were running low on players for the event but we made do with what we had. In each jam there were only 3 blockers instead of 4 to make up for the lack of players. Boy did it make us tired but it was worth it. It was also my first scrimmage since my knee injury. I was definately running low on stamina but I made it through.



Anyway, It was a very close bout. Harpie couldn't attend, but she made us some awesome zombie panties for the bout. the pivot stripe was made of brains and the jammer star had an eye. She is so creative. =) The robots were beautifully shiny. We all played hard and it led to a score of 60 to 61, with the Robots winning. It was a close game and the fans had a blast. It really was a fun time.

Afterwards the merch table was swamped, we got to talk to a lot of new derby fans, and I felt honored to be in some pictures with them. It was my first public bout and it felt great. I headed home before Waterfire but the rest of the girls from our league got to lead the torch lighting procession. They looked awesome doing it. Thanks to everyone that showed up and thanks to Sis Boom Bonnie for organizing an amazing time!

Can I also tell you how entertaining it was to see animals come out to dance?

I only posted some photos but if you go to the following link you can see the rest at my flickr account. Zombies vs. Robots


  1. I can't believe it's been so long since I read your blog! So sorry! Love the cats! Zombies?

  2. Of course Zombies! :) I forgive you. We've been so out of touch. We need to fix that. I'm never on aim anymore.
