SHIRT #012 – NORTH POLE BABES IN TOYLAND
NORTH POLE BABES IN TOYLAND
This month’s team hails from North Pole, Alaska… U.S.A.!
The North Pole Babes in Toyland started in September of 2010 and have been gaining in numbers ever since. The babes are a tight knit group of ladies that love roller derby and love serving the North Pole community. We work hand in hand with the Santa’s Senior Center for fundraising events and we participate in the Adopt a Highway program to help do our part to keep our town clean.
So far the Babes have had 3 official bouts. Last year Rage City (Anchorage) invited us to play their Devils Club and since we didn’t have enough players to fill a roster at that time we were lucky to borrow some awesome players from FBXRG (Fairbanks) and Boom Town (Wasilla). Although we didn’t have hardly any practice time together we went down and had a great time and it showed that no matter where you are from or who you skate with; derby is derby.
For our second bout, we flew down to Juneau and played the Juneau Roller Girls. We gave them a good run for their money but found ourselves partying in the sin bin for most of the bout. That bout was a great learning experience for the whole team and we came out of that with a lot of learned not-to-do’s. Our last and most recent bout was with the Denali Destroyer Dolls (Wasilla) and we worked together like a well-oiled machine at that bout.
