This time around we’re doing things a little bit differently. Our featured “skater,, Bobkat, comes to you from the Buffalo Herd which is QCRG’s crew of skating and non-skating officials. Bobkat is our head non skating official (aka Head NSO) this season. He may not be knocking anyone down on the track, but don’t count him out just yet. You can catch...

Our next featured skater comes to you from the Lake Effect Furies and to know her is to love her. She’s one of the most fun loving and friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Always smiling, she’ll make friends with you while lining up against you on the jammer line just as easily as she would at an after party. But when she hears the NSO say “FIVE...

As you may already know we have undergone a number of changes to our league as we embark on our 10th season. So it’s only fitting that our January skater of the month is #1717, Joy Ride. Joy, a 3 year veteran of the Suicidal Saucies is the QCRG’s newly elected Chairman of the Board, arguably the most demanding job in the league. But even with this highly...

When did you join roller derby? How did you hear about it? My first interaction with roller derby was in 2006. I had just moved to a town outside of Nashville, TN and was looking up things to do there, when I came across a Myspace page that announced the forming of the Nashville Roller Girls. I didn’t know anything about the sport at that point, but knew I...

Mar 12, 2015

QCRG’s next featured skater is the Devil Dollies’ very own Vanilla Creamz! This woman was born to be on quad skates. The strength and fluidity behind her stride makes her a true powerhouse on the track. With a strong athletic background and hunger for competition, this skater is an important asset to the Dollies’ squad. Here is what...

When did you join roller derby and how did you hear about it? I joined QCRG in August of 2010. I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into at the time but boy am I happy I did! A manager of mine at work had brought it up that she wanted to try out, and naturally I was intrigued enough to find out more. She ended up not joining, but I did and the rest is...

When did you join roller derby and how did you hear about it? I joined in late September 2008. My dear friend Amanda, née Claire Violence, had just went through Boot Camp and was loving it. I was looking for a sport to get involved in again, and it was either roller derby or hockey, and I chose roller derby.   Had you played other sports previously? I...

How did you first get involved in roller derby? The derby bug bit me about 8 years ago. I was friends with (former QCRG skater) Sissy Sparkles. Fast forward a few years – while I was working at Delta Sonic I met a good friend named Celery STALK-Her (DD/LEF). She’s the one to blame when you want to point fingers about why I’m in QCRG. I had been living...

When did you join roller derby and how did you first learn about it? In 2009 a girl I had known from school contacted me because she thought she saw me in one of the league photos; she went on to tell me that her friend plays and asked if I knew her. I looked at the photos and decided I needed to be there. (The girl she thought I was turned out to be Super...

Fetishly Divine #1125

Jul 10, 2013

When Fetishly Devine, then known as Nicole Perla, was a little girl, she used to skate around the neighborhood all of the time. No one would skate with her because she had imperiously announced that she wanted to be the roller derby queen. Even then, she intimidated. When QCRG first began, Fetish was an intimating skater known for her bruising hits and fast...

Arti Choker is a girl with heart and spirit. A dedicated skater and the QCRG Job Coordinator, she has worked her way up from a first-year rookie to become a valuable part of the Queen City Roller Girls. We sat down with Arti and asked her what it’s like to train in the league, from picking a name to joining a team. She also had some pretty good advice for new...

Legs Luther #102

Jan 9, 2013

When you go to a league practice you can count on a few things.  In the wintertime it’s going to be cold.  In September, it’s going to be hot.  Someone will run practice.  And Legs Luther will be there. She is that player that you underestimate when you line up on the jammer line and she’s blocking on the opposing team.  The one you think “ah, I can...

Pepper Stix #60

Sep 24, 2012

It was in Washington DC when Pepper Stix threw what she called a “temper tantrum” in a game. She had gotten clocked good by one of DC Rollergirls’ bigger blockers and was pissed when she came back to the bench. She pulled off her helmet cover and threw it on the chair. That’s it. That was her temper tantrum. It was no surprise that Pepper Stix was voted...

Jul 16, 2012

How did you come to play derby? It’s an old story, I guess, because I think a lot of women get hooked on derby the same way. I went to watch a bout and said, “I could do this.” Days later I had skates on, something I hadn’t done since I was a teenager. By the end of that session I was doing crossovers again. A couple of months after that I...

Featured Skater – Jaded Sins’Ability #47

Jun 8, 2012

Jaded Sins’Ability #47 just finished her fourth season with QCRG. In those four years she went from the last person drafted to her team to a player that many, on and off the Alley Kats, look to as a model skater, teammate and friend. She is strong and determined and can stay calm in a crisis. Plus, she’s got a wicked sense of humor and the funniest...

Featured Skater – Val du Morte #63

Featured Skater – Val du Morte #63

May 5, 2012

Val du Morte (#63) of the Devil Dollies and the Lake Effect Furies isn’t flashy, but she is a surprising player.  She’s one of the smaller skaters so you may discount her.  You would regret that the moment she hits you.  Then you take notice and maybe even try to avoid her.  Unless, that is, you are her teammate, or are partnered with her during a...

Featured Skater – Sissy Fit #20/20

Featured Skater – Sissy Fit #20/20

Apr 2, 2012

Although she will tell you that her name fits her perfectly, most of us know her as a mild mannered, persistent jammer/blocker with an easy smile and a warm personality. That is, she says, until her coffee isn’t quite right, or something else gets in her way. And then the hissy fits commence. We sat down with Sissy a little while ago to find out how it all...

Featured Skater – #525 Addy Rawl

Jan 18, 2012

You may be surprised to see who we have picked as our skater of the month – but who better to honor than a skater who will be missed so very much? She is known within our league as an amazing athlete, a fierce competitor and the most humble person you will ever meet … this month we honor, Addy Rawl! Addy initially joined our league in 2007 as a ref and spent...

There are very few things in life that most derby girls fear, but if you ask members of the Queen City Roller Girls what can leave them shaking in their skates, you will likely hear this skater’s name mentioned in their response.  Among QCRG’s league members – skaters, refs and NSO’s – her game face is legendary!  She has a quiet strength and fierce...

Featured Skater #00 Dr. Dementer However you look at the Queen City Roller Girls, you cannot help but see Dr. Dementer. She’s shined as a skater, a captain and was instrumental in the earliest grassroots efforts. Doc joined QCRG the first summer of the league in 2006 and clearly had outstanding talent. While many of the early skaters were still working on...
