#64 Mary Prankster

From July 2015, we'd like to recognize this BAD skater . . .

Mary Prankster is no joke when it comes to BAD finances. She’s been whipping the Finance Committee into to all-star shape by streamlining processes, compiling excellent reports so we can all see where the league is financially, and generally rocking things all around. Also, in her arsenal is an array of valuable architectural knowledge as BAD continues searching for a new practice space. From drawing up track dimensions and then helping us maintain our budget – BAD is lucky to have Pranks keeping us from too much mayhem.

What’s the story behind your derby name?

The Merry Pranksters are an infamous group that traveled around the States in the 60’s causing general delight and mayhem. They were chronicled in the book the Electric Cool-Aid Acid Test. This is a play on their name by changing Merry to Mary, which also happens to be my paternal grandmother’s name. I supposedly take after her, though I never met her.

How long have you been playing roller derby?

Two years.

How long have you been with B.A.D.? What brought you to B.A.D.?

Also two years since I started at B.A.D.! I wore my old speed skates from the 80’s as part of a Halloween costume a few years ago. A friend said to me, “You should play roller derby!” They were right . . . a few months later I found B.A.D. and signed up for a pre-Reckless class.

What’s your skate set-up?

Antiks. I’m a fan of ankle support.

What is your favorite non-derby sport or cross-training activity?

Trail running with my pup, Harvey! And backpacking when I can get away for a weekend in the Sierras.

Share your favorite derby memory/moment from 2015.

In our game against the Belles this year, in the last few minutes of the game the score was very close – within a few points. Our coach, Huck Sinn, called a timeout and we huddled for a regroup. Huck pulled out a passionate motivational speech and declared, “I won’t lose by three points again!” (The Outlaws have lost to the Belles by three points twice in recent years.) And sure enough, the Outlaws came together for a win . . . by four points.

#333 Dreadzilla

For September 2015, we recognize the 2015 Rookie of the Year, Dreadzilla. The Oakland Outlaws' newest addition and an indomitable jammer, Dreadzilla comes to us by way of the Peninsula Roller Girls. In her short time at BAD, Dreadz started an informal derby training program for beginning and returning derby players in Dolores Park and quickly made a name for herself as a regularly rostered jammer. During BAD's volunteer events, Dreadz can be seen sporting an extravagant outfit and a big smile while pouring you a cold one. Come see her at our next home team game of if you can’t wait that long, check out her design business, Facebook or on Instagram @serpentesdesigns.

#27 Red Card

March’s BAD Skater of the Month, Red Card, is a perfect example of how Bay Area Derby strives to include their local community from step one and beyond as we continue to grow our organization from the ground up.  After seeing her very first derby bout at the Craneway Pavilion about two years ago, Red Card signed up for our intro program, the Reckless Rollers. She also began volunteering as an official. After learning the basics and drawing from her competitive athlete background, Red put in the hard work necessary to make the jump from newbie to league member and passed tryouts. It wasn’t long after that Red found her way on to the roster of the Oakland Outlaws. In March 2016, she skated in her first ever game with the Outlaws against the Santa Cruz Derby Girls.

Red Card’s admirable work ethic doesn’t just end on the track. In addition to continuing to serve as a non-skating official, Red also serves her league as a member of the facilities committee and the bar manager for our Events team. In essence, she keeps our house clean and safe, our thirsts properly indulged or hydrated, and she’s got our backs on the track. Red’s dedication on and off the track has made this homegrown hero an incredibly valued member of both her team and the league as a whole.

Name: Red Card

Number: 27

Team: Oakland Outlaws

BAD League Involvement: Facilities Committee and Bar Manager for Events Committee.  As bar manager I work closely with sponsorship to get us sponsored for alcohol, coffee and the likes.  

What’s the story behind your derby name?: I played soccer all the way through college, so I knew it had allude to soccer.  Red was my nickname growing because of my hair.  When a friend tossed out Red Card, it was perfect and stuck from day one.  It also worked really well, as I started in officiating (NSO).  

How long have you been playing roller derby?: Almost 2 years, though there was an unfortunate break for a bit with some knee problems.  

How long have you been with BAD? What brought you to BAD? : I started in Reckless Rollers and just continued up from there.  I went and saw my first bout at the Craneway a while back and couldn’t believe how awesome it looked.  So I signed up when they had the next bootcamp and then just kept showing up.   

What’s your skate set-up?: Pretty beginner setup, though I’m looking to get new gear at RollerCon this year.  Riedell “Wicked” package: 265 boot, Powerdyne Rival plates.  Added Bionic super stop toe stops and Rollerbones Turbo 92s for wheels. I LOVE the wheels.  

What is your favorite non-derby sport or cross-training activity?: Soccer by far is my favorite non-derby sport.  I don’t play anymore, but for cross-training, I try to force myself to do sprint work at least once a week.  The crippling feeling in my lungs makes me know it’s good for me.

Share your favorite derby memory/moment of 2016 (so far).: Before the Santa Cruz bout, Oakland took a second to recognize and cheer for the fact that it was my first bout ever.  Made me know Oakland is my home and family.  

Share one of your favorite motivational quotes with us.: “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”

Aside from the ethical implications, that means working hard when you know you need to and should for your team (ex: off-skates training or giving your all on the track), even though you could just lie and say you did.

#137 KillA Beezy

Don’t mind us as we play catch-up and give recognition to our April BAD Skater of the Month!

Since transferring to BAD from Central California Area Derby in Fresno, KillA Beezy’s been a tremendous asset to BAD both on and off wheels. She’s always eager to learn, willing to help, and will take on just about any challenge put in front of her. A member of the Berkeley Resistance, Beezy’s dedication to growing her skills set and being a supportive teammate is apparent. She’s always got a smile on her face, is happy to do whatever her team needs in the moment and has no qualms about putting her head down and just doing WORK.

If you’re a follower on Bay Area Derby’s Facebook and Instagram pages, you can credit Beezy for the steady stream of info, pictures and derby fun. If that isn’t enough, she’s also been instrumental within our Merchandising Committee.

She’s smart, works hard and is very much a positive addition to the continued stream of skaters transferring into BAD. In fewer words: we’re glad you’re here, Beezy!

What’s the story behind your derby name?: It’s a multi-fold story. My “real” name is Betsy and I had a good friend in college who nicknamed me Beezy. When I went to choose a derby name I was watching a lot of this anime called Naruto which features a ninja named Killer B, who is an 8-tailed beast with extraordinary powers who raps in an obvious homage to the Wu-Tang Clan. Things just kinda came together.

How long have you been playing roller derby? : Almost 4 years.

How long have you been with BAD? What brought you to BAD? : Just under a year. I was recruited for a job in the south bay and when I made the move I wanted to put myself in a position where I would be able to improve in my sport, so I transferred to BAD.

What league jobs do you currently hold? What committees are you involved with?: I am the social media coordinator of the PR/Marketing committee and I work on the the merchandise committee.

What’s your skate set-up?: Riedell 495 & Powerdyne Revenge plates.

What is your favorite non-derby sport or cross-training activity?: Power lifting and spinning.

Share your favorite derby memory/moment of 2016 (so far).: Traveling to Los Angeles with Berkeley to play in the Tinseltown Showdown and winning all the games!

Share one of your favorite motivational quotes with us.: Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. -Vince Lombardi

Your heroines in World history. Kathleen Hanna, Margaret Heafield

Your favorite food and drink. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chips, and fresh salsa (preferably made from homegrown tomatoes). I mostly drink water but if I had to choose one alternate beverage forever it would be hard cider.

Your favorite heroes/heroines in fiction. Right now Arya Stark and Brienne of Tarth (I’m currently reading A Storm of Swords, that’s the third book so no spoilers you HBO watchers!!)

Who you think is the most despicable fictional villain? I can honestly only think in terms of what I’m reading right now so it’s got to be Joffrey and Cersei Lannister. Let’s be honest – there are more despicable real life villains out there than fictional ones because they are just as sick or sicker and they are REAL.

If you weren’t doing your current occupation, what would you want to do? Something to help tackle real world problems that affect everyday life, especially impoverished and/or homeless youth. I could probably do more about that no matter what occupation I have, so that’s a goal for me to find a way to do that.

#242 Pomba

May’s BAD Skater of the Month is an individual who has gone above and beyond since she joined the league.

Pomba #242 (the skater formerly known as Hakunama Pomba) could be BAD Skater of the Month every month of the year! Pomba is the epitome of a team player whose hard work on and off the track help keep BAD rolling strong. As a blocker/pivot for Berkeley and a 2016 travel team skater, she clocks in nearly as many hours as a full-time job with her Insurance Liaison and co-Events Manager positions — along with other league tasks she picks up throughout the month. Often one of the first skaters to arrive and last to leave when volunteering at BAD’s games and outreach events, you can give her a fist bump when she reps Berkeley’s hippies July 23rd at the Craneway Pavilion in their game against the San Francisco ShEvil Dead.

Name: Pomba

What’s the story behind your derby name?: It’s my last name.

How long have you been playing roller derby? : About 3 years

How long have you been with BAD? What brought you to BAD? : 3 kick-ass years. Started as a fan, then signed up for a BAD led “learn-to-skate” clinic and the rest is history.

What league jobs do you currently hold? What committees are you involved with?: CM of Events, WFTDA Insurance Liaison, Team Gold Captain, part time league trainer, and I help out wherever possible.

What’s your skate set-up?: Custom carbon Bonts with the Infinity plate, and Bont FXX wheels. Best setup I’ve ever had.

What is your favorite non-derby sport or cross-training activity?: I sweat hard with my Personal Trainer (who is a retired BAD All-Star) a couple times a week. She keeps me strong, focused, and reminds me to have fun.

Share your favorite derby memory/moment of 2016 (so far).: When I found out I was selected to be on Team Gold. I am constantly humbled and reminded of the hard work that has been put in by my teammates both past and present each time I step on the track. The Gold Helmet represents so much, including years of work and I am grateful each day to have been given the opportunity to wear it.

Name your favorite heroines in World history. I’ve got too many to list.

Your favorite food and drink?  Pizza with a Brotein shake on the side.

Who are your favorite heroes/heroines in fiction?  Right now, Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones. She’s like 6 years old and already shutting down the mansplaining.

Who you think is the most despicable fictional villain?  Can I say Donald Drumpf? I like to pretend he’s not real. 

If you weren’t doing your current occupation, what would you want to do?  I’d be a Gastroenterologist who specializes in inflammatory diseases of the bowels.

 

Nurse Gory and Dread Alert

These two (now three!) are always there at our bouts to put us back together again when we fall on the track, and we are so thankful to have them in our derby family!  We thank Nurse Gory and Dread Alert for being there for us and congratulate them on their baby!

What are your names outside of derby?
Melissa Gory and Julian Romero

What do you do for non-derby work?
We’re both psychiatric nurses and both teach in the field.

How did you become involved with our league? How long have you been with us?
We started working as NSO’s and medics years ago with Resurrection Roller Girls in Rohnert Park and heard that BAD needed medics last year for the Bay of Reckoning, so we sent off an email to volunteer – we were so excited to help out! We’ve been working (and getting the best seats in the house) all the bouts that we can since then!

Do you have a favorite part of being involved with BAD or derby in general?
As spectators, we are in absolute awe of the athleticism of the skaters. As nurses, it’s wonderful to be available to help, but such a welcome relief how infrequently we’re truly needed at the bouts and scrimmages! As parents (we recently had a little girl), we feel so honored to be a part of something that will empower our daughter to grow up strong, happy, and loved (this kid’s derby family is HUGE) and to create her own path.

Do you have a favorite derby moment or one thing you are most proud of?
It may sound silly, but we’re both just so happy to be part of this amazing league – that’s what we’re proud of. The feeling of family, of community, is intense and we’ve felt so welcomed… When we were hospitalized with complications regarding our daughter’s birth, the outpouring of love and care we received from this league completely floored us – we are still glowing from it.
Outside of derby, of course, we’re most proud of our little derby girl! We can’t wait to get her on her first pair of skates! Cute kid, awesome family, athletic feats, strong and empowering people, having fun… how could that get better? Oh, Donna’s Tamales – duh!

How did you come up with your derby name?
Melissa’s (Nurse Gory) was a bit of a no-brainer… she’s a nurse, and her last name is Gory (she even considered specializing in wound care at one point!). Julian has had a couple of derby names, but Dread Alert has stuck. Naturally, their daughter has been called both “Minor Dread,” (we’re waiting to see if her hair comes back in in dreads), and “A Little Gory.”

If you had a superpower what would it be and would you use it for good or evil?
Dread says he’d like the power to fly, but only three feet off the ground – he just thinks that’d be really funny. Gory fantasizes about the powers of functioning well on no sleep, and the power of peripheral vision. As for using the superpowers for good or evil, well that’s a matter of perspective… What, you wanted a SERIOUS answer?

Mindiannapolis500

Mindiannapolis500 has been an integral part of the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls almost since its inception. She was a skater from 2004-2007 and has coached ever since. Since her retirement as a skater, Mindi has also served in several leader ship roles and is constantly going above and beyond to help make BAD better. One of her more recent projects was the creation of our Reckless Rollers program. Now skaters who have never skated, or haven’t skated sine their rink rat days, can learn basic – intermediate skills and ready themselves for BAD tryouts. The break down of skills and techniques makes roller derby easy to understand and her practices are always so much fun. We are so lucky to have you Mindi!!

What is your name outside of derby?
Mindi Ann

What do you do for non-derby work?
I count different things then staple things to other things after I add up what I counted. Some times I just sort things and put rubber bands around them.

How did you become involved with our league? How long have you been with us?
I started as a skater with BAD in December of 2004. I saw a copied hand written note that skaters were needed for derby at my local bar. I showed up at my first practice, back when it was a 10PM start time at the Bladium, where we used to practice. If you had skates and could roll, you were in! I have been retired from skating since 2007 and have been coaching full time since.

Do you have a favorite part of being involved with BAD or derby in general?
I love to watch the progress of our skaters, not only as athletes, but as people in general. A lot of our skaters start derby when things in their personal life are amok. The confidence and strength that builds from inside and out is amazing to watch. Derby really does save some souls. The game has evolved into such a beautiful sport to watch and i’m proud to be a member of a league that is so cohesive, cooperative, smart and directed.

Do you have a favorite derby moment or one thing you are most proud of?
I have run a lot of beginner boot camps over the years and I love to watch skaters go from barely being able to stop, to being a Travel Team All-Star. I feel good knowing that I got a chance to be a part of their beginnings. Every new “Bambi” that comes to one of my classes could be our next All Star. I always try to remember that! Not everyone starts off amazing and the work and perseverance of some of our skaters is awesome.

How did you come up with your derby name?
I used to use the ID “Indiann” when I first started playing with online social networking. One of my online buddies, suggested mindiannapolis500 and it just seemed perfect. When I was skating, I sometimes used Panic Attack, but that was more or less due to my unfortunate anxiety over traveling! No, I don’t like NASCAR.

If you had a superpower what would it be and would you use it for good or evil?
I think superpowers are overrated. I’d rather be super smart, or super funny. I’d find that more useful than leaping tall buildings.

The Bomb Squad

So the last time we sat down to talk about our amazing volunteers and those who support the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls, we asked each other whom we should honor next as Volunteer of the Month, and there arose a great cry from the assembled body. “OMIGOD ABOMB'S PARENTS!” they all shouted. For yea did we all agree that, man alive, these are some PASSIONATE fans, and support our league and skaters like few others.

Whether it's buying every raffle ticket in the place to win the coveted Gold Chair for an entire doubleheader, or stealing the show at the half-time dance-off at WFTDA Playoffs in Sacramento, Momma and Poppa Bomb just bring joy to everyone who sees them in the crowd. When Momma Bomb starts dancing, you KNOW the party's been brought.

Ladies and gentlemen, your B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls Volunteers of the Month, Tom and Patricia Shelby, The Bomb Squad!!

How did you become involved with the league?

Tom and I first saw Bay Area Derby Girls skate at the Sacramento regional championships some years ago, I think in 2010. [We] both fell in love with the sport and saw the potential it could grow into and become more athletic and even more competitive. I (Pat) had grown up watching the Bay Bombers with players like Joni Weston, I never thought my kid would like to get hit and hit people especially this particular one, she was a big softy. We started our involvement when [ABomb] moved from Oahu back to the mainland and requested to join BAD in 2012. We became regular attendees at open practices and all home games. Eventually we figured out that we should just buy season tickets and all of the other special events like Golden Bowl. 

Do you have derby names? 

Yes we do, a few in fact…
a.) We made our own tee shirts that say “BAD PARENT”  I was once asked by a stranger if the court Judge had made me wear that in public. 
b.) Since our daughter is commonly called a shortened version of her derby name “Abomb” we started being called Momma Bomb and Poppa Bomb by some of her teammates on the Richmond Wrecking Bells. It took and we love it. I have a black, white and gold outfit with Momma Bomb and BAD Parent on it and I proudly represent Bay Area Derby when I go to tournaments or to Travel team events.
c.) We are also known as The Bomb Squad — we bring noise, laughter, a bit of groove and some dance moves to the games. We are open to all who love the game and love to cheer for Bay Area Derby Girls.

When not bringing the Noize and Funk what do you do?

Tom is an awesome computer-nerd type working as a software architect analyst and Pat works in human services teaching employment services skills. We have five wonderful daughters, seven fantastic grandchildren and have been happily married for nearly 36
years.

Do you have a favorite Derby moment or one thing you are most proud of?

When our girl “Abominatrix” rolled out onto that floor for the first time at Craneway Pavilion as a member of the Wrecking Belles it gave us goose bumps.

What is your favorite part of being involved with Bay Area Derby or derby in general?

Pat: My favorite part is feeling like I am a league Mom. Not a mom just to my own kid but to all of my girls, as I call them. I like giving out the hugs and encouragement.

Tom: Being father of all girls has made this derby adventure for even more enjoyable because this is a sport that showcases the strength, athletic abilities and determination of women so beautifully. I have met other fathers and we share a bond of believing in and support strong women, that is so very cool. As a man I want to see it grow to give even more girls and women an opportunity for sport in the future.

We both have enjoyed the camaraderie and friendships we have developed within the derby community in the league and among our competitors. We are excited to see where Bay Area Derby will be 10 years from now.

My Derby Crush? 

Pat: Poppa Bomb (My rhythm and heartbeat)     

Tom: Momma Bomb (She gives me courage)

Our Derby Crush?

Abominatrix #140 of the RICHMOND WRECKING BELLES

Red Card

In the Merry Month of May, our B.A.D. Volunteer of the Month is another one of our officials, Red Card! Red is one of our newer NSOs, and has already demonstrated an
ability to quickly pick up a new skill, and is becoming one of our more reliable officials. A fellow official says of her, “She is super eager to learn about how the game works from every angle. Always willing to hop in and help with anything that the league needs.”

And what does the league need? Well, sometimes we need someone handy with metalworking tools. And as someone pointed out, Red “makes things with metal and fire, and that's pretty [darn] cool.” And that skill is what earned her this nomination, for her work leveling the floor in our practice space, spending hours grinding down various bits of metal that made our floor lumpy and adventuresome. Red has also worked with our Facilities manager on other livability projects, including pigeon mitigation. 'cause nothing makes skating more unpleasant that pigeons and…well, just, pigeons.  

For being willing, skilled, handy, and for seemingly always wanting “to learn a smarter, better, more efficient way to do a job if she see's that one of us has one,” we honor Red Card as this month's B.A.D. Volunteer of the Month!

What’s your gubmint name (the one on your birth certificate)?

Brittnee Jones

Do you have a derby name? How’d you get it?

Yes, Red Card.  I was always Red growing up in soccer camps as it was easy for

everyone to remember (given the red hair), so I was definitely using that.  And my

partner suggested “Red Card” as a tribute to soccer.   It immediately stuck.  Plus it’s fun

to be Red Card as an NSO.  

What do you do when you’re not supporting the Bay Area Derby Girls?  

Sciencey things for my day job. And I work on big crazy flaming metal art stuff in any

other free time. (Yes, for burning man but for other things too). I’ll throw a plug in for the

Flaming Lotus Girls!  I love ’em!

How did you become involved with our league? How long have you been with us? 

My partner got me to go to some bouts last season. I immediately realized these are my

people: highly motivated warehouse athletic types. I was enamored.  

Do you have a favorite derby moment or one thing you are most proud of? 

Um, not really. I’m a super newby, so I’m still earning my stripes. 🙂

If you had one super power what would it be? Would you use it for good or evil? 

Right now, I’d wanna be able to control the weather. Team California needs rain. 

Where would you love to live, if not in the Bay Area?

I’ve done my fair share of traveling for work, and it made me realize this is really home.  I

have no idea what’s next but there really isn’t a place I would love to live right now

except here.  When there is, I’ll move there.  

Who’s your derby crush?

Prolly (former ShEvil #52) Kid Ace.  She’s an amazing trainer and super great human all

around. And she somehow magically has that wind blown hair look after killing it in a

bout.  

What’s your personal goal for 2015 (derby or otherwise)?

Hopefully my knee will heal and I can make the league.  That’s the dream.

Sexy Beast

This BAD Volunteer of the Month may be given recognition from the league back in May 2015, but he continues to give many hours of his time and energy to BAD each month.

“SEXXXXXXXY BEAAAAAAAST” can be heard echoing across the track when the lovable, 6’4” Sexy Beast enters the room. From announcing, to reffing to producing some of the best boutfits this side of the Rockies, he’s an overall awesome person. Beast also helps keep our practice space up and running, from implementing a zero waste program to the ever glamorous light bulb changing. He’s got a heart of Gold and has been a great help with our Skater Tots program –  teaching local kids the love of skating.

Name: Sexy Beast

If you have a derby name what is it & what’s the story behind it?

Sexy Beast. It’s from my favorite movie of the same title, a classic English crime film starring Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley. As something of an unorthodox participant in derby way back when I started (2007) I wanted the name to amuse, entertain as well as to challenge conventional taboos about what was ‘sexy’.

How long have you been with B.A.D.? What brought you to B.A.D.?

I was connected with the then Head Ref for B.A.D. by a mutual acquaintance. My first bout was 2007 B.A.D. Champs (Richmond vs.ShEvil at the San Jose Civic). I was a scorekeeper for Dirty D!  I knew immediately that this was something I had to be involved with.

It has been an amazing 8 seasons with no need nor intention of stopping!

What do you love about roller derby?

The Community: skaters, officials, volunteers and fans united in their love and appreciation of the sport and those who participate in it. The global reach of our community is evident daily and growing stronger every season.

Share your favorite derby memory/moment from 2015.

Easily my favorite derby moment of 2015 was getting to announce the Championship Game between Berkeley and Oakland. It was a compelling rematch between the gritty Oakland Outlaws and the upstart Berkeley Resistance, a “no holds barred, adrenaline fueled thrill ride” of a contest culminating in a heart-stopping finish. It was super exciting to see our league put on an event of that caliber and it was a treat to see the Berkeley Resistance achieve their first B.A.D. Championship.
