TVR Travel Team! (Attn: Boise, Oregon & Salt Lake!)
If you were one of the unlucky people who weren't able to make it to TVR's last bout of our expo season on April 28th, you're in luck! You can still see it (if you're in Idaho)!
Thanks to our local public TV, our bouts will be airing on local Channel 11! You may have already caught the first few airings of our Spring Fling-Her,
but if not, you can catch it again on Saturday, May 26th at 11:30am. Not all of the bout will air, but it is most of it - and there are some great moments you don't want to miss! Watch the Devil's Darlings
vs. Cell Block B
and B-Town Battallion
vs. the Derailers
! Here is the intro clip of the bout on YouTube.

- 1st Pace: Derailers with 3 wins/0 losses
- 2nd Place: Devil's Darlings with 2 wins/1 loss <-- My team! Yay!
- 3rd Place: B-Town Batallion with 1 win/2 losses
- 4th Place: Cell Block B with 0 wins/3 losses
Director "That Guy" will be traveling to Bend with our travel team this weekend taping TVR's FIRST inter-league bout against the Lava City Roller Dolls, which will air in the future on the same channel - more info later. If you happen to have some free time on Saturday and are looking for a good time, you should head over to Bend, Oregon and catch the bout! It starts at 6PM (doors open at 5pm) and it's at the Central Oregon Indoor Sports Center. Next month, on June 23rd, our travel team will be heading to Salt Lake City to take on the Salt City Shakers - they think they're gonna Bury the Treasure

Also, this is from Koffin Kitty (of Cell Block B) - She pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter:to the fans of the treasure valley rollergirls....
thanx for bein there, we've practiced & trained for a year now. going through soo much, physically, emotionally & any other obstacle we had to encounter on the way.
ever since i joined people asked, do you get paid? nope.
does it hurt? yes. so why do you do it?
up until last night it was because of the sport, which that is a huge part of it, your all derby or nothing.
but last night filled in the last piece of the puzzle. this huge dust cloud covered, bruised, chaotic puzzle on wheels....
& it was all of you, the true fans of the treasure valley rollergirls!!
those fans who waited in lines to get the chance to sit on metal bleachers & watch us tear each other apart, cheering & screaming all the while!!
& i can say with out a doubt, that every single girl on the league looks forward to every pain filled, gruelling practice, just so we can do it all over again for years to come, for you...

Hey Miss Maalox....
Nervousness is back for the bout next Wednesday (dammit). In fact, I've been consuming large quantities of Maalox - which I'd rather not do.
Anyhow, we have got a lot of publicity recently. In addition to the KIVITV.com
spot (if you didn't see it, the title of the video spot is "Rolling with the Punches
"), we made the front page of this week's Thrive article and were on Fox TV (although I didn't see that personally).
Over the next week, you should hear us on the Eagle, J105 and possibly other stations. I know there will be some ticket giveaways, so you might want to keep an ear open!
Here are the recent online links to TVR stuff that should get you all hyped for the bout next Wednesday!:
I believe we're going to have something in the Boise Weekly
next week as well.
I would like to mention that the pictures aren't all that flattering to many of us (although there are some REALLY cool shots). Almost everyone looks TONS better than they do in these photos - It's rather difficult to rock out a hot look when you're wearing a mouthguard. Haha! If any of you other rollergirls have any ideas, I'd love to hear them!
In case you haven't got your tickets for next Wednesday, you can find some online here at Brown Paper Tickets
or downtown at the Record Exchange
As of the 20th, you can get tickets for our bout on April 28th
(B-Town Batallion vs. Derailers and Cell Block B vs. Devil's Darlings).
|Wednesday, February 28th, 2007|
Check it out!
There is a lot of derby going on this week! I don't know if any of you have heard any ads today or not, but we're all over the radio stations!
First of all, the Treasure Valley Rollergirls are going to be on the Channel 6 evening (10pm) news tonight! Their reporter spent 2 entire practices filming us and one she even laced up and skated with us! The spot is supposed to rerun during the Thursday early am news and will be up on the KIVITV.com
website at some point!
Then on Thursday, we are having a fun event at the Record Exchange! Head on down there from 6-7 and you could win tickets to the bout or other great prizes! Plus you will get to meet girls from each of our four teams!
FINALLY! If you haven't yet got your tickets to our first bout on March 21st, you should definitely get on that! We have a REALLY COOL halftime show - Firedancers! - in addition to the debut bout for all four of our local Boise teams! ( Bout PosterCollapse ) Current Mood: busy
