Fans who can’t wait to meet up with their favorite derby girls can join the Dames at the Taste of Wheaton on Thursday, June 2, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. in downtown Wheaton at Memorial Park. They’ll be serving up cold drinks at the beer tent and collecting tips to fund the People’s Resource Center.

“Last year was super fun,” said league member Bloody Murray. “It was warm, busy, and it’s $2 pizza slice night!” The event supports the People’s Resource Center, a grass-roots, community-supported organization that brings neighbors together to respond to hunger and poverty in DuPage County.

Dames to Learn from Celebrity Skater
School might be out for summer, but class will be in session for the Dames. They’ll pounce on all opportunities to gain new skills from guest coaches and clinics such as Roller Con and Beat Me Halfway.

The Dames will also get a visit their long-time friend and mentor, Jackie Daniels, as a guest coach in mid-June. Jackie has multiple awards and credits to her name, including Windy City Rollers All-Star MVP of the Year and two-time League MVP.

“Jackie is about as big of a deal as it gets in derby,” said Crissy Crossbones, Uproar skater and Head of Training. “We are very lucky to have a great relationship with her. She’s a Team USA skater, captain of the Texecutioners, and was featured in the movie Whip It.”
