The ladies of Crossroads City Derby welcomed riders at Ump 88, which was one stop along the route. Other stops included Hooters, the Farm and Ranch Museum, Blue Moon and Sparky’s in Hatch, NM. The ladies braved the heat of sun to reach out to the motorcyclists and promote community awareness. In between turns at the check-in table, the derby dolls enjoyed refreshments from the kitchen of Ump 88, which is delicious.
CCD skaters took the opportunity to set up a booth on the sidewalk outside the restaurant. The CCD logo was proudly displayed on shirts and the ever-useful can koozie. Also featured was Sucias travel team gear and shirts with the logo of the newly created team, Las Santas. This provided proud Santas with an opportunity to promote their new team who are celebrating a, so-far, spotless record of 1-0. Yay, Santas!!
The ladies all enjoyed the day and bonding over food, music and sunburns. Some ladies donned skates and took their chances among rocks and asphalt in the parking lot. Says skater Cruces Criplher of the rather steep hills on either side of the pub/restaurant, “Daaaaaaang!”
Motorcycle riders in this inaugural event included CCD’s very own General Grant Slam, announcer Gonads O’Brian, Hearno Evil, Mr. H. Evil, Barbie Bombshell and Coach Bombshell. Apparently, our ladies of CCD are just as smokin’ hot in their leather as they are in fishnets.
Crossroads City Derby is pleased to have been included in the number of volunteers for this event. As a league formed strictly of volunteer skaters, Crossroads City Derby understands and values the time and effort of volunteers and is proud to serve the Las Cruces, NM community.
