Tournament Time

We got up bright and early for a team breakfast Thursday – complete with our companion hanging out in trees.


Then we had some of skates training & warm up in the hotel basement – to ensure top secretness. 

Next we hiked down the hill to the tournment – it was our daily exercise at the beginning and end of each day.   

We arrived in our allocated dressing room & started stretching and preparations.


Walking out like Bosses    

We then won our exhibition bout against the Devil Dog Derby Dames 180-165 to us.


Lindale Shovelace & Drop the Pom were our MVP’s 
This called for a celebration in the form of drinks and dinner in a karaoke room in the local pub.  

The next day we repeated our game plan – breakfast, warm up and skate out.

We played the JRDA Nippon team and kinda beat the pants off them. Final Score 502-82 to us.

MVP’s – Shehard & Rumblestintston   

Final day of the tournament dawned on Saturday and after a hearty breakfast we once again headed off down the hill.

A handful of our players were invited make up a mixed team to play JRDA. It was a fantastic bout and great fun was had by all involved. 

Later that afternoon we were playing our final bout against Misawa. We were evenly matched but the Brawlers stayed focused and won to make it 3 out of 3. final score 126-243 to us.

Then there was the prize giving and we were named the B division winner AND our very own Shehard won overall MVP!!! Our excitement was uncontrollable and we even got medals.



Next stop was the after party in the American Village where we partied till late.

Thanks to everyone who supported us through pledge me, Facebook and everywhere else. We couldn’t have done it without you.
