Dire Skates Tryouts
The Dire Skates Roller Derby Team is having open try-outs for men and women on August 21st at 4pm at the Richmond Skate. Skate rental available, but bring skates and pads if you have them. They want to add to their current womens’ team, referees, and start up a new co-ed team! It’s a great way to exercise along with a bit of good clean aggression releasing.
This weekend is also the beginning of the Darke County Fair in Greenville Ohio (just a 35-40 minute drive from points in Wayne County). And in Winchester they are holding the Old Timer’s races at the Winchester Race Track–home of Mrs Wickes Pies.
Richmond’s Roller Derby Team, The Dire Skates, is having open tryouts for men and women on August 21st at 4pm at the Richmond Skate. The team is recruiting both Men and Women this year! They are looking for referees and enough men and women to start a new co-ed team as well as adding to their current women’s team.
Wondering what it’s like to be a part of the Dire Skates? Well, GWC asked just that to team member, Chrissy Bahnweg (“Princess Die”):
My team mates are the most fearless women I know. We are mothers, sisters, daughters, nurses, bankers, teachers, business owners off the track. But all have a story that has made us stronger as a person; and its great to have Roller Derby as an outlet. Being on the Dire Skates team is the best support system anyone could ever have. We bond and have this wonderful sisterhood. We all have jobs on the team that make everything run more smoothly. I have been on a lot of competitive teams in my life, but this team is so organized it makes everything about it easy.
For those interested in becoming a part of this team as a member or referee, get down the The Skate on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. Skate rental will be available, but you are to bring skates and pads if you have them.
Interested in seeing them in action,? Check the GoWayneCounty Events Calendar for their Bouts, and come down to support ”Richmond’s Derby Little Secret!”

This morning marked a turning point for 5k runs across America. No longer will runners enjoy the beauty and peace of running through Glen Miller Park without looking over their shoulders.
The fear in the air was palpable and was plain to see on the runners’ faces as they passed by an unnaturally tall, motley crew of women on skates. Women who fully intended to chase the runners through the park as they tried to keep their minds on the race.
Yes, The Dire Skates, who seem to be everywhere in Wayne County at once, have infiltrated the once sacred world of competition running. True to form, they broke the rules by skating the 5k in non-regulation running gear. I’m not even sure they knew this was a 5k race and not a derby. The runners appeared to be worried about that as well.
Dave Snow from G 101.3 was on hand to organize the event and try to keep it peaceful with a minimal amount of carnage. I could see on his face that he was concerned about his decision to let the Dire Skates in on the race. As the race drew near, it seemed more and more likely that things could go wrong. Very wrong.
Juxtaposed against moms pushing baby carriages and hyper-fit runners for whom a 5k is a morning snack, the Dire Skates with their coach (Dredd) seemed delightfully out of place.
No one from the race has reported any mischief to the RPD, though the race is still going on as I write this.
