Fund the Floor: Put the COMO Back in Derby Dames!

Indie Go GoThe Dames have the chance to come back to Columbia – for good!  We have the building, fans, drive, and determination…we just need a floor.

To purchase hardboard flooring, plywood under-flooring, storage space rental, sound equipment, and seating options, we need to raise $10,000 by December 2014. We have a ton of uniquely COMO Derby Dames swag to reward you with for supporting the Dames. Anything from a high five to a custom taxidermied domestic animal, we’ve got you covered. All contributions received will still be used to bring the Dames back to COMO. We are motivated to make a COMO homecoming, and while we hope our triumphant return will be for the 2015 season, we understand that fundraising can be challenging. We vow to keep chipping away at our $10,000 goal until we can come home. Check out our Indie Go Go site and donate today!

Why did you get involved with roller derby and how long have you been playing for?

I skated a lot as a kid, so when I found out about the CoMo Derby Dames several years ago I was equal parts interested and intimidated.  I never worked up the nerve to pursue derby until March of 2012 when a friend asked if I would go to a beginner practice with her.  I showed up with my mouthguard and $5 and never looked back.

Who is your derby crush and what do you find so entrancing about them?

There isn’t really just one person I look up to.  I feel like everyone I skate with has different strong points, each being derby crush worthy.

What gear do you swear by?

Oh man I love my Radar Bullets!  Having the right set of wheels can make all the difference in the world.

How did you get your derby name?

My derby name actually originated from a Halloween costume I made several years ago.  A group of friends decided to go with a superhero theme, but by the time I started working on my costume everyone had already chosen the only superheroes I could think of.  I made up my own instead.  Since my last name is Boldt, I became Dr. von Thunderboldt (superpower unknown).

Do you have a pre-bout ritual or good luck charm?

I like to give my teammates lots of high fives and chest bumps.  If nothing else, it helps to keep the nerves at bay.

What is your alter ego, when you are not on the flat track?

When I’m not on the track, I’m working at the Museum of Anthropology and taking care of the American Archaeology Division’s archaeological collections.  If I’m not at work or at practice, I’m usually out canoeing one of Missouri’s beautiful rivers or riding my bike on the Katy Trail.

Derby DOB:  My first bout was November 10, 2012.

Position on the team: Jammer
