If you could go back and talk to yourself as a newbie skater, what advice would you give her?

I would tell myself to start this amazing and life changing sport earlier. When you join in your 40's, TIME is your worst enemy. I get this question all of the time, "Are you still doing the roller derby thing?" I always answer with a "Yes." I get really sad thinking about the time when I will have to answer, "No." I love this sport and the family that goes with it.

Don’t obsess over your mistakes. Even the greatest skaters in the world screw up every now and then. Just learn from them and move on

Dallas Derby Devils Announce New Look

The Dallas Derby Devils are proud to introduce their new logo designed by league member and graphic designer Anna Lee Doughtie (Animal Lee). Wanting to emphasis the city of Dallas and the state of Texas, the logo combines two key elements: a Star and Pegasus Wings.  The star is both a nod to the Lone Star State and representation of the jammer star, a well-known symbol used to indicate the roller derby player who can score points on the track during a jam. Additionally, the wings represent the Pegasus, the unofficial mascot of the city of Dallas.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE DERBY MEMORY?

One of my favorite memories so far and likely always would be when I got my first lead jam at B-team Champs at the end of last season. It was my first game ever with Battalion of Doom, and I remember getting through the pack and hearing the whistle. My jam ref was pointing at me! I was Lead! I heard the Dallas bench erupt in cheers. I could not help but cheer back.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR DERBY NAME?

When I went to try out for derby I had no idea what my chances of making it were. I didn’t want to make a big investment just for tryouts so I went to Dick’s sporting goods and bought some Barbie skates to try out in. During tryouts everyone called me Barbie because of my skates. Afterwards we went out and everyone discovered my love for Whiskey/ Bourbon and then my name, Bourbon Barbie was born.

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ONE SKILL IN ROLLER DERBY TO PERFECT IN AN HOUR, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Apex jumps. Because who doesn’t want to fly through the air and right past an entire pack of your opponents??

WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO GET INVOLVED IN ROLLER DERBY?

My best friend brought me to my first bout. I was just amazed. I saw them get hit and bounce right back up. It was my first derby game. They happened to be passing out tryout flyers that day. I was hooked ever since.

WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO GET INVOLVED IN ROLLER DERBY?

I saw my first bout as a fan, and I instantly knew that I had to play. It wasn’t an easy road though, when I started I could barely stand on my skates.

WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO GET INVOLVED IN ROLLER DERBY?

I enjoyed just recreational skating and while I was at the skating rink I saw a bunch of girls walk in for practice. Talked to them about it and joined a year later.
