It may be the off season, whatever that means, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t hungry like the wolf for all things derby in Kansas City.
Likewise, if you have news (not rumors or gossip, please) about upcoming events/developments in your favorite KC derby league, don’t hesitate to e-mail us at kcderbydigest [at] gmail [dot] com.
KC Derby Digest has gotten wind of a promising new roller derby league in St. Joseph, Missouri (about 55 miles north of Kansas City) called the Blacksnake Roller Girls.
BRG‘s Facebook page went live today with a very short description and little else: “Newest roller derby sensation to hit St. Joseph, Missouri. Skating under the Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor (M.A.D.E.) rule set. More info coming soon!”
Let’s hope so. As of press time, no further information has been posted, but you can bet we’ll be keeping an eye out for what is no doubt a very talented, dedicated group of ladies bringing the greatest sport in the world to St. Joseph.
