Equipment Matters; Adjustments Matter More – The Mandozer
I’ve been off-skates for a few weeks. Sunday morning I got my skates back.
I’ve owned three pairs of skates in my time as a skater the last couple years; an old pair of two sizes too large skates with some unknown plate and an older boot with any branding warn off, A newer set of skates, a Riedell 465 boot with a Revenge plate, and my latest set of skates, an Antik AR1 boot with a slightly oversized Revenge plate.
We Are Members of the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA)!
The Chicago Bruise Brothers have been working over the last couple years to build our team, our officials, and our support staff and to both travel to and host bouts against teams in the Men’s Roller Derby Association with a major goal of gaining membership ourselves.
We’re happy to announce, we’ve made it!
