Girl Fawkes Joins the Executive Board of Directors as Treasurer
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 5, 2011 – The Men’s Roller Derby Association is proud to announce the addition of Jill “Girl Fawkes” Vidal to the MRDA Executive Board of Directors. Girl Fawkes is devoted to flat track roller derby as a skater for the WFTDA league Conneticut Rollergirls, and as manager of the MRDA league Connecticut Death Quads. Now, Girl Fawkes joins the MRDA Executive Board of Directors, where she will maintain oversight of the financial condition of the MRDA.
The Men’s Derby Coalition was founded in 2007 as a loose federation of men’s derby leagues. The Men’s Roller Derby Association is a new incarnation of the MDC legacy. With the same passionate men and women at the helm of MRDA, we continue to promote men’s derby through resource sharing. But now – we are focused on developing more benefits to leagues who become members. Such benefits include: umbrella insurance coverage, and the ability to compete in the annual MRDA Championship tournament. With encouragement from the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), MRDA hopes to build a strong and influential organization like WFTDA. Our aim is to complement their contributions to the sport of roller derby and offer new perspectives to the derby community.
