|ACRD practice space.|
ACRD did a really great job organizing the event. Teams from all over the upstate/central area were invited and I thought we had a pretty good turnout. It was a mixed scrimmage, so we all lined up in order of perceived skill level and were assigned either black or white. I ended up being on a team with mostly Utica Roller Girls and a few CNY girls, so that was nice. Shock was on the other team, but she got to play with Blaze from ACRD (who I mentioned in my recap of the CNY vs. ACRD bout). She's not quite as scary in person as she seems on the rink (again, I mean that in a good way!) but she is seriously an awesome skater and a great proponent of roller derby.

And of course ... no trip out to central NY is complete with out a stop at FasTrac. Can't wait until next month!
