Your very own Glenmore Reservoir Dogs have been admitted into the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) as of October 15th, 2013! The Dogs applied several months ago and have been waiting patiently for the go ahead. This means that your Glenmore Reservoir Dogs are now officially able to attend MRDA sanctioned events and tournaments, as well as be ranked in the MRDA along side teams like the New York Shock Exchange, Your Mom and Puget Sound Outcast Derby! The entire league (CCRD) are also members meaning this will have benefits for all skaters and officials alike! We will have the opportunity to vote on MRDA issues and help
So congratulations to the Dogs, we’re all part of something larger now!
