This time I remembered to bring the 15mm lens so I got a few wide angle shots of the venue.  Water City Roller Sports is a big warehouse sort of building that appears to be lit by  HID lights.

there's that turtle again.

looking fierce

The Babes of Wrath make a stunning last jam comeback to gain a two point lead at halftime.

Also, I just love the old broken panels and industrial looking pipes on the wall in this venue.

Goldie Blocks had a good night, gaining lead jammer status on her very first jam (in her very first bout)
