2011 Wheelie Awards

Monday, January 16th, 2012

Whether you’ve been a roller derby fan for a decade, or are someone who is just hearing about it now, there is one thing that you need to know about this community… Roller derby parties are crazy!

This was more than evident at the HCRG year end party – PIRATES versus NINJAS. Every one of your favourite derby girls was there, dressed up and ready for combat. Whether they were looking for your bounty, or swinging nunchuks – they were ready to party! As in typical HCRG fashion, this party was held at This Ain’t Hollywood, on January 7th, 2011. As it turned out, a lot of the public was not prepared for what they might see on their regular Saturday night out with their friends.

The night started off friendly enough, sushi for the ninjas and pulled pork for the pirates, on opposite sides of the room of course. But soon it broke out into a full on ninja versus pirate battle! It seems to me like the ninjas won… but I may just be bias on that one. Although, there was one event that the pirates dominated in: The PvN limbo contest, with pirate Jewsy Flawless coming out on top!

The HCRG Rowdy Rowdy Refs

Awards were given out to refs, vets and rookies alike to celebrate the many victories HCRG has achieved within the last year, both on and off the track. To end the night, our very own Hot Carl, presented an incredible display of fireworks for us… as you would expect during a Canadian winter, this caused quite a stir with the locals. But it was absolutely wonderful regardless!

If you’re going to take anything away from this story, let it be your new found love and admiration of derby parties, and make it your new mission to come out to an after-party soon!
