Think This Looks Like Fun?








Mayhem Sandwich at the Intraleague Bout.
 It is! To get in on the action, read on.

You know that the clinic for prospective SCAR skaters is this weekend? That's right -- on April 28th, this Saturday, from 11-1 SCAR Derby will host a basic skills clinic for those who are interested in reffing or rolling.

Bring a $25 clinic fee, safety gear (knee and elbow pads, wrist guards, a helmet, a mouth guard), and a good attitude. You don't have to attend the clinic to try out, but the clinic is where you'll meet some of the team and get training on the skills that you'll be tested on for tryouts. In other words, it's optional but highly recommended.

Penn Skates is our home rink, across from the airport. Please arrive on time to get dressed before the clinic starts.

Finally, please let u know you're coming. Email recruitment@scarderby.com or RSVP on Facebook to the to get on the list of prospective skaters/refs. Again, not strictly necessary, but highly encouraged.



Tryouts will be on May 12th, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. -- you'll need to RSVP to get an interview time before you attend.



And good luck -- we hope to see you at both!

Looking back...

So, this page has been kinda quiet...

Not intentionally, though.  We've just been almost too busy to update.

Just a few of the things we did in the last few weeks:

On April 7, SCAR played the Roc City B-Sides at home. 

Those of you who've been SCAR fans for a while might remember that SCAR's very first road bout was against the B-Sides, about a year ago -- and Roc City murdered us.  Would this be more of the same?  How have the teams changed in a year? 

Turns out that both teams have gotten a lot better.  SCAR put up a valiant battle against the B-Sides after a slow start, ramping up the points and trading off jammer leads throughout the bout.  Penalty leaders were Kyssing Koas for SCAR and Lethal Lorelei and Jess Kaboom for Roc City. Hells Mels rallied the team with a 14-point power jam in the second period. But ultimately, Roc City prevailed.  Final score: SCAR Derby's Happy Valley Dolls 77 to Roc City B-Sides 141.

On April 21, SCAR Played the Skyland Roller Girls in Morristown, NJ.  This bout was a double header, and SCAR and SRG battled to the finish!  Final score: SCAR Derby's Happy Valley Dolls 120 to Skyland 104.

We're #8!

Thanks for the ranking, V-Diva.
Not bad for a brand new team, huh?
