Headliner Bout: Team Saskatchewan vs Alberta All-Stars
April 19 - 21
Cutting his teeth with the Oil City Derby Girls back in early 2007, Lime has run the bench for the OCDG All Stars in Edmonton, Saskatoon's SRDL, CARDA's Missfits and the Red Deer Belladonnas. He has also spent time in British Columbia working with the Okanagan's OSRDA and TCDD in Kamloops and down east with Moncton's Muddy River Rollers and Fredericton's Daisy Cutters. Lime travelled with Hoochie, 8-Mean Wheeler, Sour Cherry and Trailer Park Tracy over to the UK in 2008, coaching Team Canada in Glasgow, Birmingham and London and then co-founded Team Canada Mens Roller Derby along with Noah Backtalk, seeing playing time with Johnny Capote and the boys in 2009 and 2010 and he jumped at a chance to play with Seattle's Puget Sound Outcast on an Eastern US swing. You can often spot him on the bench as coach of the Vancouver Murder mens squad. 2013 will be another busy season, highlighted by the RDAC Nationals, with Lime bench coaching both Moncton and Saskatoon. Working with newer leagues and skaters is a treat, and Lime admits he enjoys the sport the most when he gets the opportunity to teach game strategy during practices, clinics and bootcamps as a guest coach.
Cousin Vegas started out as head ref and head coach of the largest league in Canada, which was in the West Kootenay of BC.
A word from Beretta Lynch of the TCRG All Stars: "...Vegas continued [in] a leadership role as head referee, in which he competently trained our entire ref crew individually and through a successful season-opening workshop. From there, other refs were empowered to move into leadership roles and Vegas continued as head coach of the [Gnarlie's] Angels, but he also moved into the head coach position of our newly formed travel team, the Kootenay Kannibelles. . . Add to this his unselfish skill sharing with nearly all of our now seven-team league, and one sees that his enthusiasm and game smarts have positively influenced our entire regionas well as spread into the East Kootenays via referee and coach mentoring for their league. As a result of a workload that carried our skaters to new skill levels and appreciation for the sport, Vegas was voted 2011 League MVP.
[The Gnarlie's Angels had an undefeated season, and the Kannibelles moved into fifth place in Canada on Rollergirl.ca rankings].
Vegas has a keen strategic eye. He strongly supports sportswomanship and team cohesion. He's an advocate for his players, of any skill level: he graciously helps any skater wishing to improve. Add to this a clever, competitive streak , and it's clear Vegas will be a huge asset to your league."

She served as co-captain for her house team in 2012. She started training fresh meat with PBDC in 2011.
Bazinga was voted Rookie MVP in 2011 and received Best Jammer for her house teams in both 2011 and 2012. In 2011, she was short-listed for Team Canada and has since guest skated for the Oil City All-Stars and the Red Deer Belladonnas. Bazinga recently made the first ever Team Sask.

In life (*cough* derby), Bazinga believes that setting goals is part of creating success for oneself and wishes to influence others to constantly set goals and challenge themselves.
