TRH has been all kinds of busy this spring. We’ve been training with our new rookies, taking part in local happenings, making plans for the summer and cheering for our Bloody-Ho-Mary who has been training with Team Finland for the Blood & Thunder's Roller Derby World Cup held December 1-4, 2011 in Toronto, Canada. Stay tuned, world!
Last week Helsinki Roller Derby’s MayDay in Hell international double-header bout and bootcamp brought skaters from over 20 leagues to Finland. Oh yay, exciting times, thought TRH and RSVP’d yes please when we were invited by Lahti Roller Derby to come and train in Lahti with Triple Threat Derby Girls Sum Mo Payne and Danger Girl, Rat City’s Hunter S. Toss ‘em and HRD’s Tigre Force and Fat Rat. Jammer starts, blocking, scrimmaging, good times! We learned a lot, many thanks to TTDG, LRD, HRD and Sir Hunter!

Amazing skating, hitting and jamming! We want to be like Violet Attack, Mosquito, Hyper Nova and Swede Hurt when we grow up. Whoah! More good times and derby education!
