|DC/DC ROLLER DERBY||
On Saturday February 25th, DOA held a co-ed mixer to raise money for and honor the death of one of their skaters, Chola Loca. She passed away unexpectedly on January 1st, 2012, leaving behind her family and friends. "Fallen but no forgotten" the crowd joined in on a candlelight vigil with enough guest skaters to make up two bouts. Skaters came all the way from Illinois, Minnesota, and all over the state of Iowa.
Skating for DC/DC: El SuperBeasto, HAVOC, Vanilla Gorilla, Livid Red GRRL, COWBOY, and Aftermath.
The first bout saw COWBOY on the white team, pulling a win of 227 to 147. Skating for the black team was HAVOC, Beasto, Gorilla, and Red. The second bout had a win for black, 185 to 152 with Aftermath skating for white.
Then Sunday the 26th, DC/DC gathered for a Triple Header at Skate South in Des Moines to battle out Capital Punishment. With a lot of help from OMGs BAMF, Spankins, and Stealin' Sunshine we left with a very close win of 138 to 126. Everyone pulled through and did amazing! Some highlights of our ladies at their best :) (pictures curtesy Pamela Kay Aldrich)
