Skating with the Girl Scouts

Skating with the Girl Scouts

One of our favorite events that we do periodically is teaching and skating with local Girl Scouts.  This night was no exception and we had a wonderful time rolling with these adorable and energetic young girls and maybe – hopefully – future Derby skaters!

SMRD v Dutchland Crush

SMRD v Dutchland Crush

The rematch of the season between SMRD and Crush happen in Landover, PA.  If you remember earlier this year these two teams met in Waldorf for an intense and very close game but in the end SMRD emerged victorious.  The first match-up wound up giving SMRD their first win not only of the year but also of their career, an exciting time for all really.  Fast forward a handful of months and we have these two teams face-to-face on the floor in Landover.  Through intense skating, sweat and at least one split lip Crush was the winning team this time around.
