A2D2 took the South by storm last weekend during their trip to Asheville, North Carolina. Both the Arbor Bruising Company and the Brawlstars made the 9+ hour drive down for a full day of derby on Saturday, June 4.
Our next home bout, June 11 at Buhr Park, pits the Brawlstars and Arbor Bruising Co. against North Star Roller Girls' Supernovas and Northern Lights. It's a matchup that's sure to be out of this world!
If you've seen us at Buhr Park, you know a day of derby is one of the best bangs for your entertainment buck, from family-friendly fun to crave-able concessions, and now we're thrilled to announce another perk: You (if you're of legal age) can enjoy a cold beer while you watch us play! We'll be slinging Pabst Blue Ribbon, Founders' Pale Ale, and Angry Orchard Cider, starting June 11 and continuing through the rest of our 2016 home season.
The Ypsilanti Vigilantes traveled to Euclid, OH on May 21st to face the Burning River Pyromaniacs. The weather was warm and sunny and the excitement of a road trip was high. After an exciting win at home one week earlier, the Vigilantes were excited to see how they would fare against a new addition to the Burning River league, the Pyromaniacs.
May 14th brought excitement, nerves, cold temps and snuggling blankets to Ann Arbor during the home opener of Ann Arbor Roller Derby's 2016 season at the beautiful Buhr Park. Heading into the home bouting season, the Ypsilanti Vigilantes have been working hard on developing strength and unity in their lines, perfecting a deep jammer rotation, and applying new offensive strategy. After being defeated by the Downriver Muscle the previous week, the Vigilantes applied what they learned from that bout and faced the East Lansing Broadbarians with brut and grace.
