An excellent teammate on and off track, a great leader and super positive towards everyone…these are just a few qualities that describe why Rocket Queens jammer #1352 Block Lobster is our May 2016 Angel of the Month!
Lobster transferred to ACDG January 2015 from Beach Cities Roller Derby. Her smile (and signature Lobster red lipstick) has made a huge impact in our league. Lobster came to ACDG with fantastic skills on the track and she has continued to improve immensely! She is one of the top scoring jammers for our International B team, the Rocket Queens.
This past weekend April 29th – May 1st, Lobster and the rest of the Rocket Queens made LA history by traveling with their ACDG sisters and WFTDA Charter team, the Hollywood Scarlets and little sisters ACJD’s the A-Listers to Eugene, Oregon to compete in the WFTDA Recognized Tournament, “The Big O.”
Off the track, Lobster is incredibly active, both leading as head our Safety Department and as head of the Sponsorship Committee. As our Safety Department head, she is helping us clarify policies around concussions which is crucial when playing a full contact sport like roller derby!
As head of our Sponsorship Committee she’s organizing orders, promoting sponsors, running a successful raffle at our games and much more!
Lobster is always bringing people up instead of down, and really focused on improving individually and collectively. We love having Lobster skate with us and are thankful for everything she does for ACDG!
Be sure to catch Lobster at our raffle table during our 10-Year Anniversary Celebration and Double Header on May 14th when the Road Ragers take on Prison City Derby Dames and the Shore Shots take on the Bakersfield Diamond Divas!
