Wordful Wednesday - Roller Derby Black Ball

Last Saturday was the roller derby's annual awards and formal event, otherwise known as the Black Ball.  Usually we're all stinkin' and stankin' in our derby gear, but this gave us an opportunity to dress up and actually smell good around each other.

The venue was a martini bar.

I'm no longer a roller derby rookie!  I can now consider myself a vet, having been on the team for over a year now.  There's definitely been a fair share of drama but it's an amazing team that I'm proud to be a part of.  We finished off our season at 10-1.

My daughter Shelby, AKA Ginja Ninja, joined the team a few months ago.  It's become a family affair!

Shelby Ginja Ninja received two awards, one for most determined and one for most improved.  She started in the middle of the season, so she hasn't actually been able to play for the team yet.  But she played an active role as Jam Timer and has shown much dedication during team practices.  She'll be ready to rock it this upcoming season!
