Down the rabbit hole, through the looking glass and straight to the gates of Wonderland!! Jammerblocky has been and gone already, but what an awesome day. Final score: GCRG 56 - DRR 82.
Right from the off it was easy to see that the two teams were evenly matched. It remained close most all the way through; we were winning by two, they were winning for three, we were winning by four etc, etc. But, a few jams before the end, the Dolly's literally rocketed with some power jams that soared them into the lead. Well done on your win Rockits, and we love you all still! Looking forward to the rematch some time next year.
And the after-party was pretty good too, from what I remember!! A huge, massive, mega well done and congratulations to the GCRG burlesque dancers who created a special dance tribute to our guests. I think we can safely say they enjoyed it!!
See you all at Jingle Bell Block!
'Twas midday, and the travelling droves
Were settling in each seat.
Preparing tales of violent throes,
Forthcoming to their feet.
"Beware the Jammerblocky, my girl!
The whips that lash, on wheels of steel.
Beware the Pivot's backward twirl,
That spin you like a reel."
To be continued...
Want to find out how the tale ends? Well you need to join us when the Granite City Roller Girls take on the Dolly Rockit Rollers.

Hope to see you there xx
