Keweenaw Roller Derby is Back for the 2020 Season

Luna Stormborn


Hi, Luna Stormborn here to let you know Keweenaw Roller Derby is back in action preparing for our first bout of the 2020 season. It will be an away bout in Duluth Minnesota versus Harbor City Roller Derby on April 11th. I broke my ankle mid season last year, some of you may have seen me hobbling around on a walking boot during our last few bouts, and I am finally back on skates after six months! I was injured back in June and have not really done much on skates until this month and I cannot even begin to explain how exciting it is to be skating once again and hanging out with my derby family. KRD have been doing our minimum skills testing, a test to determine if we can skate safely during game play, and we are all killing it. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to pass any of the things or get my laps but I surprised myself and passed everything. It’s still a work in progress to get my footwork and endurance back to where it was but I am hoping I will be back in tip-top shape by the time we are ready for our home opener in May! Come welcome me and all the other kick ass derby folks back onto the track on May 9th as we play against our Yooper friends Kingsford Krush at the Dee in Houghton!
