We had 6 of my Girl Scouts come along. We also had 6 other siblings and 7 adults. It was a good sized group. Here's some pictures before the bout.

It's really hard to capture any action shots. So I took a shot of them giving high-fives to the other team. The Nashville girls are the blurs. I thought this picture turned out pretty neat.
The only things I knew about roller derby I learned from the book. So...a very basic understanding. I caught on a bit more watching, but I still don't know all the rules.
I know there were some girls that I really enjoyed watching as jammers. They were super strong and athletic....jumping in their skates. So cool! I also know our team dominated. Here's the final score.
After the bout, the girls were invited down on the court for a picture. Some other kids joined in as well. All of those aren't mine.
Then they got a picture with Xcelerator. This was her last bout, she's retiring.
They had an official photographer there. These are his pictures...he had a big flash.
