Title: Refs Needed for Utica Rollergirls Benefit Bout 8/13
Post by: Ellison72 on August 12, 2011, 08:58:01 am
Hi all,

I'm the Acting Head NSO for the Utica Rollergirls (URG: Utica, NY). This coming Saturday we were scheduled to bout against Assault City Roller Derby (ACRD: Syracuse, NY). Tragically, one of their skaters (Ragin' Ruby) died in childbirth the week prior to the bout. Her funeral is being held Saturday, August 13, the day originally scheduled for the bout with ACRD. Regretfully, they pulled out of the bout to offer support to Ruby's family.

In true derby fashion, a number of skaters from across the region volunteered to skate in ACRD's place as "Ruby's Rollers." We are, however, in desperate need of 2-3 refs for the bout.

Given that this has all occurred suddenly, we are pleased that so many kind people have worked to make this happen. In recognition of Ruby's contribution to both her team, and to derby in Central New York, proceeds from Saturday's bout will go to support Ruby's newborn son.

If you think that you might be able to help us, please email me directly at uticarollergirlsnso@gmail.com.

Thank you,
