Roller derby teams ask fans to vote on names
Granite State Roller Derby is asking fans to choose the names of its two new teams through an online survey.
Each new team is down to four potential names, from a list of almost 90 choices submitted by friends, family members and fans. The teams, which have 11 and 12 players, chose their favorite four team names from the selection. Now, the group is asking fans to choose from those four. The survey is available on the group’s Facebook page (Granite State Roller Derby) and everyone who votes will have a chance to win season tickets for the upcoming season.
The choices for Team A are: Capital Offensives, Demolition Dames, Kancamanglers and Quarriors. Team B’s choices are: Bad Latitudes, Capital Crushers, Capital Punishers and Fighting Finches.
The league was founded in 2010 and already has one team, named the Legislashers. In November, the league announced the addition of the two new teams, which will have their debut in the 2013 season. The season begins April 27 with a home opener against Mass Attack Derby at the Everett Arena in Concord.
