GCRD 10th Anniversary - 2012
By granitecityrollerderby, Oct 23 2018 05:11PM
This was a mixed year for Granite. We sadly lost our bouting venue at the Beach, which did gain us some attention from the press.
As skater #666 Krusty said in the article, we were fortunate to have friendly leagues not too far away that gave us the use of their halls for games, for which we were very grateful.
As you can see, it didn't stop us travelling and playing wherever we could.
We took part in the Scrimmage of the Damned.
We played against the Lincolnshire Bombers.
Travelled to play the Belfast Banshees.
And took on Newcastle as well.
On a different note, the previous year had seen the first Roller Derby World Cup, in which to Granite City skaters had competed.
One of those skaters, #111 Clinically Wasted, was selected to carry the Olympic Torch through Aberdeenshire.
