MTLRD sends, for the first time, the New Skids on the Block to represent at the notorious East Coast Derby Extravaganza.
The team played in two sanctioned WFTDA bouts - only their 2nd and 3rd such bouts - and surprised everyone with their tenacity, heart and shear skating ability. Both games where close battles from the very first jams and the Skids were only defeated by minor amounts. No one expected the first Canadian representatives to the WFTDA to perform so well this early in sanctioned play.
Moreover, the Skids now infamous crowd pleasing antics endeared the neon-clad northerners to a good number of the people at ECE.
