We are lucky enough to have a great pool of officials who regularly lend their services to help us out in our home events (and even travel with us in some cases!), but until recently we have relied on appointed skaters to organize our officials crews and have also relied heavily on our sister league, Central New York Roller Derby, for the organizational parts of getting crews together.
Without further adieu, we'd like to introduce and welcome Organic Panic as our Head Ref, and Fatal Exception as our Head NSO!!
Panic came to the area as a former skater from Suburbia Roller Derby, skated with CNY, and has since switched over to full time officiating, while running an amazing farm that keeps our bouts' awash in healthy fresh veggies. Her knowledge from a skater perspective led to an easy transition to refereeing, and she certainly knows how to deal with the boys on the track.
Fatal is a recent graduate of CNY's new skater training program, and has hit the ground running a big way since last winter, diving into NSO work while learning to be a skater at the same time. After attending the WFTDA NSO clinic at ECDX, and getting pulled into the Mass vs NYSE bout to NSO, she is excited about men's derby and her organizational skills are top notch.
For the 2014 season, these two will be our point people for officials' assignments for home bouts, as well as organizing officials who wish to travel with the team. They can be reached at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org respectively
Tonight's co-ed scrimmage will be their debut as officials' organizers, so please join us in welcoming them to their new positions!
