Whew! It's been a busy couple weeks for BERG! So here's a quick wrap up...

All Stars after Jacksonville bout

The All Stars are rock stars... 'nuff said. In a nail biter of a bout, the All Stars bested out the New Jax City Rollers of Jacksonville 121 to 119. Holy Smokes! It came down to the very last Jam. Coalminer Slaughter showed us the meaning of grace under pressure gaining lead jammer and cinching the win!

All Stars in Action

Congrats to two debut skaters who made their BERG premier in the May 15th bout between The Crescent Wenches and the Molly Rogers Roller Girls. Sadist Hawkins and Lezbionic brought the pain in a hard scrabble match up!

But that's not enough derby! The All Stars took it on the road to bout against the Mississippi Rollergirls of Gulfport on May 21st. There was worry that Judgement Day might cut the action short, but lucky for us, we brought some divine intervention!

A little heavenly help!

It was another great night of derby action with BERG bringing back the win!

Bring on the Judgement!!!

Anti Em striving for lead

But BERG is more than just skating! We support many other athletic endeavors. Like running... with beer! Friday May 20th, BERG was out in force pouring brews for thirsty runners in the Tchoupitoulas Bar-a-thon!

Refreshment for thirsty runners

Runners dashed a six mile course starting and ending at Le Bon Temps Roule on Magazine. We helped make sure their cups never ran dry!

All in all it was a great week week! Can't wait to see what's coming next! Keep checking here for the scoop on the Big Easy Rollergirls!!!!
