Derby on the mind


Nitrojen hands out flyers at a roller derby meeting at the Larkspur Cafe. Afterward, they showed the movie, Whip It, starring Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore.

Sitka’s new roller derby team revealed its name tonight: Sitka Sound Slayers. This January, the fledgling team plans to spend a weekend rolling around the indoor track at Blatchley Middle School, so those with less experience can get a taste of what it feels like to be a roller girl. No need to bring skates to this event — Community Schools has agreed to loan old pairs to the group for the weekend. One of the team’s organizers, Nitrojen, said women of all skill levels are encouraged to check it out — they’ll be practicing for about a year before they start competing in bouts. For updates about upcoming meeting and events, you can visit the Sitka Sound Slayers’ Facebook page.
