GCRD 10th Anniversary - Highland Fling

By granitecityrollerderby, Oct 23 2018 04:32PM

In 2010 Granite City hosted the first Roller Derby tournament in Scotland. The Highland Fling featured 6 teams from Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, with Granite finishing 4th.

For #36 Phanny, it made a very big impression.

It was the first real live roller derby I ever saw and it made me want to join the league so badly! So I did a couple of months later!

It was my first time seeing the Fights play after starting with the league, will never forget the joy when they beat arrg!!

I wore very very tiny pants and fishnets. We were elated to be playing all these other teams from Scotland and actually getting a win. We partied damn hard with Dundee and had the absolute best time despite having to play again the next day. I'm pretty sure we won the after-party.
