Candy Crushers seeking Fresh Meat

After successfully concluding the 2014 roller derby season with the Wreck the Halls event at the Cowichan Exhibition last Saturday, the Candy Crushers will be looking for new blood in 2015.

An intense junior bout saw the Tinsel Toes knock off the Candy Canes during last Saturday’s festivities. Two adult matches, with the Snowbawls battling the Fruitcakes, and the Slay Belles facing the Ho Ho Ho’s, followed. Skaters from all over Vancouver Island, Vancouver, Chilliwack and the Gulf Islands took part.

Not wasting any time, the Candy Crushers are holding a "Fresh Meat" for newcomers ages 10-18 on Jan. 6. "We are looking for kids who are looking to have fun, be part of a team, challenge themselves and be more fit for 2015," said Candy Crushers coach Amanda Gould, a.k.a. Miss B. Haven.

New recruits, and anyone else wanting to find out more about the Candy Crushers and roller derby can head out to Mellor Hall at the Cowichan Exhibition Grounds on Jan. 6 between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. For more information, email or find Candy Crushers Junior Roller Derby on Facebook.
