Aug. 1, 2012. High Country Press presents two heavy-on-the-drama videos of past Appalachian Rollergirls derby bouts for your viewing pleasure. If you’ve never seen a bout, you should check out these videos, and then you should get tickets for this Saturday. Also note that these videos are from the past (one dates back to April and the other is from June 23). Even then the Appalachian Rollergirls were tearing up the track and the other teams. Since these videos, the Appalachian Rollergirls have only pushed harder, discovered more strategies and become even more ruthless masters of the track. Read more and see the videos…

Aug. 1, 2012. Did you get your car washed this past Saturday by an Appalachian Rollergirl (ARG)? The rollergirls spent their Saturday afternoon washing cars and selling baked goods at Peabody’s Wine and Beer. The ARG Team has a bout coming up this Saturday, August 4 at the George M. Holmes Center on ASU campus. The proceeds from the bout, will benefit the local Brady Bakken Family.
July 16, 2012. Traveling down Hwy 321 or Hwy 421 you may have seen billboards featuring Boone’s local roller derby team. Those larger than life billboards only give a glimpse of what live roller derby is really like. Picture two female skaters from the Appalachian Rollergirls (ARG), skating at rapid speeds and performing in a high intensity game, which is called, in the derby world, a “bout.” Sweat pours down their noses and they wait for the whistle to start the jam.
