The final count is in. We raised: $6096 for LGBTQ charities with Shakedown performer tips and Vagine Regime and Drag King / Queen bout tickets. $4702 for Prostate Cancer Foundation which included Magic Mike vs Chippendales bout tickets, and an additional $440 and one (literally torn in) half dollar for Magic Mike and $856.75 (including the other half of that torn dollar) for Chippendales in sweaty butt dollars. $4891 for the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Drop In Centers from our gear raffle, most of which was won by one smart lady who bought $20 worth of tickets on the first day, LOL $1325 for Women's Sports Foundation in bout tickets for the rest of the games We swabbed 370 potential heroes for Be The Match bone marrow registry. And filled 2 giant 50 gallon barrels full of food for Fabulous Sin City Rollergirls Three Square food drive. For a grand total of $17.014.30 in charity at RollerCon 2016. Thank you! Next year? EVEN BETTER. #rollercon2016
A personal request. Everyone loves the late night pool at RollerCon, and it's a negotiation every year to get it, because (believe it or not) most hotel pools close at 7pm. But they let us because we're not shitheads and we mostly clean up after ourselves. I wasn't up to being the Queen of Buzzkill last night, but i was at the pool around midnight and there were a LOT of people in there with glass beer bottles. I really need EVERYONE on board to help us self-police this. I am not exaggerating that one broken beer bottle in the pool will shut down 24/7 pool for us **forever** at Westgate. It costs a fortune to drain, clean and refill a backyard pool, so I can only imagine the cost to deal with broken glass in our beloved gigantic uterus pool. PLEASE HELP US ENFORCE. Talking about shout outs every game. Talkin bout all Dicks on board. Talking bout one guy doesn't have to be the buzzkill because we spread the word so loud and clear that if someone starts to the ovary steps with a beer bottle, everyone else says, "Hey, no glass in the pool! You want to get us kicked out?" NO GLASS IN THE POOL EVER, YOU GUYS. Please get on board this train. - Ivanna
Just a little reminder: please mind your stuff and look out for each other. Not just in Vegas - in life, also. But especially in Vegas.
Please take a second outside of your obligatory post-game cheer to thank an official. They do a job skaters need, and they put up with a lot of your shit for the pleasure of doing it for you. They deserve your thanks! ROLLERCON <3s OUR OFFICIALS.
