Roller Derby Has Arrived in Kingsford

June 13, 2011 - Theresa Proudfit
Get ready for the Kingsford Krush everybody, because we have arrived. After six months of tough practice our first official scrimmage against each other took place over the weekend and I have to say.... we look good.

Don't get me wrong we still have lots to learn and many, many, more practices before the season starts, but the talent is here, the coaching staff is here, and the heart is definitely here. This group of hard working, enthusiastic, entertaining women are going to knock you off your feet this fall. (Or at the very least we will knock each other off our own feet).

Look for us this summer. We will be making appearances all over town. We made a small appearance at Hoop it U.P. last weekend, there is a team of girls walking in the Relay For Life this coming weekend, we plan to have a booth at Hogwild in July, and are planning a special exhibition at Norway Speedway in August.

Get excited, get to know us, we are your family, your friends, your neighbors and your business associates. Serious blocker/jammer/mother "Chesty Glitterheat" is your local real estate agent, "Dustie Bottoms" is a mother of 3, a local lunch lady and pizzeria manager who can skate circles around you, "Dani Kommando" is a mother of two, a waitress at an upscale restaurant and a threat to all derby girls, "*Starstealer*" is a mother/business owner/operator and a derby athletic committee member with lungs of steel and "Space Racer" is a local surgical tech who can knock you unconscious and then bring you back to life with her derby skills. Get know these girls and the other 25 members on the Kingsford Krush.

The Krush plans to start competing this fall and is currently looking for sponsors. We have several different packages to choose from starting with the smallest $25 package that includes one-quarter page ad in all bout programs for the 2011-2012 season and two tickets to 2011-2012 regular season game of your choice, all the way to the $300 Platinum Package with includes a Full page ad in all bout programs for the 2011-2012 season, your banner hanging at all bouts for the 2011-2012 season, your business announced at all bouts for the 2011-2012 season, your business name on the score board for the 2011-2012 season, your business logo and link to your website on our website, four 2011-2012 season passes, two sponsor t-shirts and one framed league photo. If you should have any questions please feel free to contact the president, Karisa Falls, via email at
