The Columbia QuadSquad is opening up recruitment for one final time this calendar year. Meet us at Skate Station USA on August 20th at 6:30pm for an introduction to CQS Roller Derby. You’ll be able to meet the Training Team, skate around in a relaxed environment, and see firsthand the skills you will need to make it through tryouts on September 6th. What are we looking for by Sept 6th? The ability to skate forward smoothly with crossovers, stop smoothly, perform one-foot glides, and be able to squat while skating. <!-more->

We also strongly recommend that you come and watch a CQS home bout to see what you’re getting into, and there are two in August! One is at our Compound on August 18th and one at Jamil Temple on August 25th (see facebook invites).

HELL ON WHEELS @ the Nickelodeon

DECEMBER 8, Wednesday
One screening only at 8pm followed by a Talkback
Sponsored by Columbia Quadsquad Rollergirls
Filmmaker Bob Ray will be in attendance.

Before the Lonestar Rollergirls, before the Texas Rollergirls, before the emergance of 300+ rollergirl leagues across the globe… before all of this, there were the pioneers.

In 2001 a rowdy group of Austin women were determined to ressurect an old sport, but with a new spin. This is the beginning of a revolution:

Hell on Wheels is the ass kicking documentary film telling the story of a group of Texas women who band together to resurrect roller derby for the 21st century. Emerging from the Austin music and arts scene, these women create a rock and roll fueled version of all-girl roller derby that has spawned the derby craze that’s sweeping the nation.

The success of the Texas leagues has inspired hundreds of women across the country. Leagues of rollergirls are currently organizing or operating in Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, Phoenix, North Carolina, Houston, Nevada, Tucson, Kansas City, Dallas, Madison, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Australia, England, New Zeland,Canada and beyond.

Hell on Wheels is the birth of the rollergirl revolution, chronicling the creation of the first modern-era rollergirl league Bad Girl, Good Woman Productions (BGGW, later renamed as Texas Roller Derby / Lonestar Rollergirls) and the breakaway league the Texas Rollergirls. Filmed from the trenches, this documentary delivers the struggles and eventual success of the rollergirls as they construct a new sport and set forth to conquer the globe. ty
