Not literally, I mean. But metaphorically, you could, if you happened to come to Skate Time 209 on Saturday, Februrary 6th, for a…
CUPID SCUFFLE SCRIMMAGE!
Doors open at 4 PM for a 5 PM whistle! Celebrate Singles Awareness Day by bodily slamming into some amazing men and women!
Admission is free, and anyone who has passed minimum skills is welcome to play! Please bring a black and white shirt if you’re interested in bouting. Check out the facebook event page for more info or to let us know you’re coming!
Us Misfits had so much fun At the Island of Misfits Mash-Up in December! There was an amazing turn out of ladies and gentlemen from all over, and everyone was ready to bout hard and have a good time. We even managed to collect 105 gifts to donate to Hot Shotz Toys for Tots! A HUGE thank you to everyone who came and donated. Lets make this next one just as fun!
Thanks for the amazing picture, Greg! Check them all out on facebook!

What could be better than a derby bout?
That’s right! TWO DERBY BOUTS!
Come join the Misfits on October 24th, in East Setauket, NY, as we take on the Slaughters of the Revolution! Our bout is part of a double-header hosted by Strong Island Derby Revolution, and everyone knows that double the derby equals double the awesome. That’s just math.

It was a nail biter! A real hair-raiser! Us Misfits were on the edge of our seats with pins and needles, and not just because our skates were tied too tight!

Huge thank you to the Fingerlakes Lunachicks for coming down and playing hard! It was an incredibly close match that came down- literally- to the last jam. The points leader flip-flopped repeatedly throughout the bout, but at the final whistle the score was 123 to 122- for the Misfits! An awesome bout all around for both teams, and an exciting bout to watch, too!
Thank you to our wonderful, beautiful, precious volunteers who helped the bout run smooth, and another massive thank you to everyone who came over to support the Misfits and the M-CM Network!
Looking forward, keep an eye out for us ladies in pink at Kerhonkson Day, in historic Kerhonkson, NY on September 12th. We’ve also got rumors flying about a Halloween Fest in Wappingers Falls… stay tuned for more info!
In the mean time though, the team is taking August off! Time for us to try and remember what life was like before derby… hmmmm…

Coming up THIS WEEKEND!! The Fingerlakes Lunachicks will be traveling down to Skate Time 209 for a fast paced, hard hitting game of roller derby! This will be our last scheduled home bout of the season, so you don’t want to miss it! Tickets are only $12 at the door or you can save some cash by purchasing them in advance by ordering them online at Brown Paper Tickets. Children are always by donation, so you can decide how much you want to pay for them.
Our featured charity for this event is the M-CM Network. The M-CM Network works to improve the lives of families affected by M-CM. Macrocephaly-capillary malformation (M-CM) is a rare, genetic syndrome first identified by researchers in the late 1990s. Many medical providers are unfamiliar with M-CM and affected children and their families face more questions than answers regarding the course of this condition. M-CM Network provides comprehensive medical information about M-CM to aid in diagnosis and treatment decisions. Our goal is to establish a disease registry to collect data about affected individuals so that we can greatly expand the scope of what is known about M-CM. You can donate to help us meet this goal.

We can’t believe it’s nearly mid July already! We have been very busy over the past couple of months!
We have played bouts against the BC Rollers’ Parlor City Tricks, the Hill City Rollers, and the Seven Valley Rollers! Each game was a great time! We had fun, learned a lot, and even took home our first win! Woot!
We have been traveling, volunteering, and representing at events as well. Many of us had a great Memorial Day weekend helping out and taking classes at the Northeast Derby Convention in Providence, RI. Then we marched in the annual New Paltz Pride Parade hosted by the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center. We got to serve as handrails (why not?) at the Men’s Beauty Pageant hosted by the lovely ladies of BRAWL. And this past weekend we skated through Saugerties in the rain during their 4th of July Parade.
Coming up this weekend, we will be at the Rosendale Street Festival! Come visit our booth across from Guts ‘n Glory Tattoo!
Finally, we are excited to announce our final home game for the season! We will be playing the Fingerlakes Lunachicks on August 1st at Skate Time 209 in Accord. Tickets are only $12 at the door or you can save some cash by purchasing them in advance from any of our skaters or by ordering them online at Brown Paper Tickets! Our featured charity for this event is the M-CM Network.
