You are so lucky!!


OC Roller Girls are having a double header scrimmage on August 30th at the Chapman Sports Complex in Garden Grove (Knott & Chapman). This is going to be an exciting event so don't miss it! Bring your friends - all of them.

The doors open at 2:30pm. Game #1 begins at 3pm and game #2 begins at 4pm. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door. You just can't get this much entertainment for that price anywhere! Children under 10 are free too, so bring the whole family. Because this is not a big fancy event you will need to bring your own lawn chair or a blanket to sit on. We could provide chairs but then we would have to charge you the big bucks. At $5 a person, you'll still have cash in your pocket for one of those killer OCRG t-shirts!

Tickets can be purchased in advance online at While you're there take a look at the new team section. There are great photos of the girls and fun-to-read bios too. Who's your favorite roller girl?

Here is a clip stolen from OC magazine's website:

The social forces behind the resurgence of roller derby across the country may be hard to explain, but the urges driving the trend in Orange County seem simple enough: “I have always liked skating and sports in general,” Jennifer “Hurt in a Skirt” Scruggs- Carrillo says. “There are not many organized women’s sports, [so] when I found out about derby, I knew it was for me. [It] gives me the opportunity to be tough but sassy at the same time. Also, the relationships that I’ve built with the girls is what keeps me hanging on.”

The OC Roller Girls represent as one of 53 leagues affiliated with the national Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. Founded two years ago by Opera Pacific executive assistant Heather Shelton, the league consists of about 80 local women skating for six teams—Anaheim Aces, Back Bay Bombshells, Huntington Heartbreakers, OC Grommies, Psycho Ex-Girlfriends—and the Orange County Crushers travel team. In order to roll, you must be at least 21, have health insurance, pay monthly dues, and buy USA Roller Sports insurance.

For this, you get a legal outlet for your aggression, and the chance to revel in an alter ego. Says Mary Marie Auterson: “ ‘Street Cred’ was a name given to me by my teammates. … Mostly because I have none.”

Derby’s charm knows no bounds—it’s caught hold of Hollywood, again. Drew Barrymore, Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Lewis, and Ellen Page were scheduled to begin filming “Whip It!” last month. It’s set for release next year.

If you think you’re tough enough, join the likes of Brik Wall, Dirty Deborah Harry, and Betty Ven Detta—spiritual heirs to Orange County’s grande dame of roller derby, the late Joannie “Blonde Bomber” Weston of Huntington Beach.
