I recently met the coolest group of women I have had the pleasure of working with in awhile. Those ladies are, the Renfrew County Roller Derby Leauge, AKA the Valley Valkyries. These chicks are tough! Dont let the uber cool skate gear and names like “Vanilla Tuff-Cake” fool you. This sport requires, speed, skill, and the ability to take a hit as well as give a few. I had an all round awesome day galavanting around Arnprior, an entire team of roller derby hotties in tow (yes we got some looks), to shoot this year’s calendar. That’s right you heard me CALENDAR shoot! Not only was it a super fun day but Marnie (our ring leader) had the whole day more organized than my colour coded closet. Ah if only I could work with that girl everyday… *sigh*… she’d keep me in line… but see, I digress.
Without further ado, here they the Valley Valkyries!
– These are my picks for the calendar (of course its the ladies choice, these are just my faves). In no particular order, except for October… you’ll see when you get there –
See you all at the next Valkyries match-up!
