The Roller Derby Girls of Los Alamos

Have you ever been to a Roller Derby Bout? I had the pleasure last spring with my friend Amy. I hardly knew what roller derby was, but I still had a wonderful time. I saw a whole different side of South Bend; there seemed to be little cross-over between the Notre Dame crowd and the group gathered to yell and cheer (and play a giant metal bucket filled with nails!) at the SkateUSA rink.

Well New Mexico has roller derby too! Apparently there aren’t enough officiants in the state of New Mexico to have more than one bout in a day, but it seems to be a growing movement. I’m pretty excited to see something so fun coming to Los Alamos. I met the Los Alamos Derby Dames at one of the Friday night concerts last week: the M’Atom Bombs!

These lovely ladies were going to a bout in Taos the next evening.
