The Misfits are proud to announce that our final home bout of the season is coming up soon! It’s your last chance to see us play this year, so come on out and cheer as we take on Strong Island Derby Revolution on Saturday, July 13th!

Proceeds from the bout will benefit the Kerhonkson Accord First Aid Squad. We are very excited to be raising money for them — not only are they a fantastic community organization, but they have been super supportive of our league and always volunteer at our events!

What more do you need? Head on down to Skate Time 209 in Accord on the 13th for a fun night of roller derby, raffles, games, and snacks, all while supporting a great cause! Doors open at 6 and the whistle blows at 7. The after party will be hosted by Hot Shotz in Kerhonkson, so be sure to stop by after the bout to boogie with us!

New Paltz Pride March and Festival!

Posted by misfit | Posted in Events | Posted on 02-06-2013

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Center‘s annual Pride March and Festival in New Paltz!

If you’re familiar with Main St. in New Paltz, you know why we wore our shoes instead of our skates in the parade! Although it may be fun to fly down that steep hill on 8 wheels, it didn’t seem wise to try it out with such a big crowd!

The parade ended at the festival in Hasbrouck park where there were vendors, community groups, and a large entertainment tent. We met lots of great people and had fantastic time checking everything out.

We had such a fabulous day… we’re already looking forward to doing it again next year!

If you missed us at Pride or just can’t wait to chat with us again, we will be at the Retro Rally Car & Motorcycle Show at Cornell Street Studios in Kingston on Saturday, June 8th from 1-6! There will be an art show and live music, too. So come on by and be sure to say hello!
