The Skate Truck

Over the past few years, there has a been a rise in the amount and kinds of food trucks in New York City.  From cupcake trucks, to gourmet grilled cheese trucks, the city has got it all.  So it was no surprise to me when I found out about The Skate Truck NYC.  The Skate Truck, a mobile roller skating facility, provides skate rentals and for those interested, skate lessons. 

This summer, the truck will be rolling around to various New York City parks and in addition to skate rentals, they also offer customized social events such as private parties and fundraisers. 

So when you're  finished resting your belly from the taco you devoured from the gourmet Mexican truck, visit The Skate Truck and take some quads for a spin!
For more information, please visit their website The Skate Truck NYC.

A Little Reminder

Hey guys!  Just wanted to remind you that you don't have to spend Friday night alone on the couch with stale potato chips.  Instead you can come on out and meet the newest members of the Rebels!

In case you didn't get it, here's the info again:

So, put the bowl of chips down and get your ass up!  The Leaky Lifeboat is waiting for you.........

From Shimmy With Love

Hello!  My name is Shimmy Hendrix, and I am the sponsorship manager for the Long Island Roller Rebels.  The Rebels are the international Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association’s foremost league on Long Island.  That’s right.  We’re number 1 on Long Island.

It’s good to be number 1.  But it takes a lot of work to stay here.  Hours of practice and hard work by our coaching staff, and dedicated skaters have not been in vain.  We are a completely volunteer run organization, so it’s the generous partnerships and sponsors that help fund our practice spaces, bout locations, uniforms, and touring operations.

We offer several different sponsorship packages as well as advertising within our home bout (game) programs.  Every month, during our home season, roughly February through November, we hold one home bout.  We distribute these beautiful programs to between 600-800 guests.  Your ad will be read!  Inside each program are the highlights to playing the game, refs and skater photos, and the goings on of our team.  It’s not just an advertising piece.

For more information and prices, please feel free to email me or reach me on my cellular phone at (347) 200-9796.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,
Shimmy Hendrix

Sponsorship Manager
Long Island Roller Rebels

PS - Stay tuned to find out about how you can advertise on The Rebel Yell!

Happy Weekend!

Too cold to skate outside?  This guy would beg to differ!
We've got a bit of snow on the way and a league scrimmage to help get us ready for our upcoming bouts.  What are your plans for the weekend?

The Return of The Three

The Roller Rebels are now in their 8th season!  From one season to the next, the league has switched on and off from having three home teams and one all star or A team, to having only an A and a B team and then back again.  Last season we had two teams; All Stars and The Rockabetty Bruisers.

This season, we have five teams!  Our A and B Teams - All Stars and Rockabetty Bruisers PLUS our three home teams; The Ladies of Laceration, The Wicked Wheelers, and The Rolling Thundercats. What does this mean for you?  You get a little bit of everything!  Root for your favorite home team and root for the Rebels when they play against other leagues. 

Personally, I'm super excited for the return of the home teams.  It's really fun and interesting to play against your teammates.  Imagine being at practice and partnering up with someone, and then taking a hit from that same person at a bout.  A real player is able to put all of their feelings aside and do what it takes to win the game.  We each know however, that it's all in good fun!

I know who I'm rooting for. Who are you rooting for?
