Congratulations to Weavin' Kohl Bear for being SVRG's Volunteer/Official of the Month!

Here are some fun facts about Weavin' Kohl Bear:

What is your derby-official name and number and how did you decide on it?

I chose the name Weavin' Kohl Bear, #1 Threat, because I come from a family of Stephen Colbert fans.  Any Colbert or Kohl Bear fan will tell you that Bears are the #1 threat to America.

How long have you been with SVRG? How did you decide to find derby?

I joined SVRG with zero skating experience in October of 2007.  A friend and I had recently seen a derby bout for the first time, and I didn't know the rules or understand anything really, but I was on the edge of my seat the entire night.  It was a Bay Area Derby Girls bout, and SVRG was featured during halftime.  That ...

Congratulations to Bionic Baby Doll for being SVRG's Skater of the Month!

Here are some fun facts about Bionic Baby Doll:

How did you get into roller derby?

I found out about SVRG back in May of 2007. For my birthday I went to see B.A.D. play and some girls from SVRG where there representing. I was completely hooked after the first jam and wanted to get involved as soon as possible. About a week later I went to the rink and bought a cheap pair of skates and started going to open skate. About mid-June I went to my first practice and never looked back.

What kind of skating skills or athletic abilities did you have before starting derby?

I hadn’t been on skates since I was little. I got my first pair when I was 3 years old. We use to go to ... Read More »

Congratulations to The Notorious S.U.Z. for being SVRG's Circuit Jerk of the Month!

Here are some fun facts about The Notorious S.U.Z.:

1. What is your derby name and number and how did you decide on it?
I'm The Notorious S.U.Z., number 253.  253 is the area code of my childhood, and my derby name pays homage to one of the best rappers of all time, The Notorious B.I.G.  Who doesn't have a deep affinity for 90s gangsta rap?

2. How long have you been with SVRG? How did you decide to play/find derby?

My first practice was in January 2014.  I've always wanted to play derby, but was too scared - how silly of me!  I've been hooked since day 1.

3. Any previous skating experience before joining derby?

The last time I remember going to a roller rink was 6th grade.  I really just ... Read More »

Here are some fun facts about Patty Hearse!

What is your derby name and number and how did you decide on it?

Patty Hearse # '74 – When I was younger I was intrigued by the kidnapping story of Patty Hearst from the 70’s. Look it up!

I changed the Hearst to Hearse because I like dark and creepy things and because my husband and I own a Cadillac Hearse that we drive around town.

You can’t image the looks we get when we are loading up the back with groceries.

What is your derby name and number and how did you decide on it?
