Tonight marked the return of Roller Derby on the Big Island of Hawaii and The Paradise Roller Girls put on one hell of a show to a sold out Hilo Civic Stadium.
The match was pretty even up until the final few minutes of the game and thats when the Scaries pulled away for the win 137 – 112.
I have never seen the civic so full before and this is a great sign for things to come.
“…We are your mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, daughters and friends. Take a close look at our roster… You may be surprised by some of the faces you see. Yes, that is the woman who sold you your house last year. Yes, that other girl owns that store you go into all the time. And that chick, yep, she’s your son’s elementary school teacher… ” Meg Premo President of Paradise Roller Girls stated in the brochure.
So be sure to check out the next bout when it happens. I’ll be sure to announce it here as well. Here is a short clip of a “Jam”:
For those of you that think this might be the fake stuff… well you can ask “Knuckle Slamwitch” how fake this is as she ended up with a pretty serious injury.
I had a great time… and even my son tried to get in on the action with a little half time hula hoop show!

Of course we can’t forget the Ref’s and the other members of the Paradise Roller Girls:
