Before our season wraps up October 16, don't miss Arbor Bruising Co. and Ypsilanti Vigilantes repping A2D2 in the statewide Mitten Kittens tournaments over the first two weekends in October!
Last year, our Brawlstars reigned supreme (more on that below). This year, the Vigis are up first in the D2 tournament, Mitten Kitten Mash-Up Crunch!, October 4-5 in Battle Creek. The following week, catch ABC in the D1 tournament, Mitten Kitten Mash-Up at the Zoo!, in Kalamazoo.
For more information and to buy tickets, visit the Mitten Kittens website. But first, watch the Brawlstars react to their big win:
Ypsilanti Vigilantes skater and A2D2 PR chair Susan B. Slamthony was recently interviewed by local blogger and doer-of-cool-things Mark Maynard. See what she had to say about roller derby history, A2D2 and the state of derby in Michigan, and whether derby has kept her from joining a gang.
