Rollergirls Foxie McMuff and Melicious Mooose impress with their skills

Two Rink Minx Rollergirls set off for the mainland on Dec. 7 to attend the western tryouts to represent Team Canada at the Blood & Thunder Roller Derby World Cup.

Foxie McMuff (Kim Emsley-Leik) and Melicious Mooose (Melissa Curtis) took their skills to Chilliwack to show the coaches they had what it takes. In the end, Little River’s own Melicious Mooose was asked to stay and participate in the final scrimmage, meaning she had made it into the top 30.

Joining her from the Island were Scarie Antoinette from Saltspring Island, who skates for Saltspring’s the Committed, and Victoria’s Margarita Villains.

The results have recently come in and in the end, they were not on the final roster. However, both Mooose and McMuff were included in the Examiner.com’s fantasy B.C. All-Star Team, as voted by their peers.

Last year, the World Cup was held in Toronto with the final win going to Team USA, with Canada coming in second place overall and England third overall.

This year the cup will be held in Dallas, Texas from Dec. 4-7. Teams from all over the world will compete, from New Zealand and Australia, to Argentina and Finland.

“We look forward to what comes next from Island derby,” a Rink Mix spokesperson said. “You can check out the Minx on Facebook on Twitter @RinkMinx, and by e-mail at rinkminxrollergirls@hotmail.com.”
