Bons Baisers de Paris

Paris RollerGirls (121-22) Bordeaux Petites Morts
April 30th, 2011 / Paris.

We had our very first bout on Apr.30, in Nanterre at our gym, against the Bordeaux Rollergirls aka Les Petites Morts. And it was awesome.
We had been preparing a lot for D-Day, training 4 times a week at least. We were seeing each other almost every day for scrimmaging, rehearsing strategies, improving skating skills... and every one of us got striken by the frenzy of collecting everything that's blue. Haha! Obsessed!
I think almost every single PRG got involved in the organization of the bout. We had girls for the tickets, the merch store, the lottery, the refreshments, people filming and photographying. We made a big banner Paris Brings the Passion with my girl Wheely Wonka, and the flag with the help of Whisky Mamy!!
The media showed up too: We had television (TF1 and M6) and magazines (Elle, Les Inrocks).
See Inrocks Article (FRA).
300 people had reserved their tickets but luckily not everyone came, which was better for security. However the tier was full.We didn't deceive our supporters and offered them a great win!
