CRG Pre-Season Party

Battling BandOn Saturday night I went to the Cincinnati Rollergirls' 2008 pre-season party at the Cincinnati Gardens called the Rock-n-Rollergirls: Battle for the Bouts. There were several local bands at the party who were looking for the honor of playing at half-time during the home season opener on April 12th. There wasn't a huge crowd, but it was a nice event with stuff for the kids early on, a derby match demo, and a full contact musical chairs competition. I took a few photos that you can see in my Flickr set here.

The most animated event was the full contact musical chairs -- in short, the traditional musical chairs game but in roller derby style. There were Lamb Chops and chairs tumbling all over the place. You get a sense of that in this shot from one of the early rounds. Fireman Bill had his hands full judging the competition.

The Librarian and Roseanne Scarr had a struggle for one of the last chairs of an early round. This diptych shows a bit of the battle.

In the end it came down to Arche Enemy and Roseanne Scarr vying for the last chair.

Roseanne came out on top -- although Sk8 Crime tried to foil her victory. Here is Roseanne taking a victory lap.
