"Ohio Roller Derby" Terese Herhold - aka Bratislava Bruiser , President
The Ohio Roller Girls was originally the brainchild of Melissa Wallace, aka Scarlette Fury. The first organizational meeting was held in April 2005 at a local pizza shop. Recruitment continued throughout the summer of 2005, and by that winter the league had about 30 skaters practicing regularly at local rinks. OHRG also was one of the original 30 leagues in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), a now international coalition of roller derby leagues.
For the 2016 season the Ohio Roller Girls changed the league name to Ohio Roller Derby. Ohio Roller Derby (OHRD) decision to drop the gender specific “Girls” from the league’s name is just one of many steps OHRD has taken to better represent the league’s members, and the diversity of skaters, referees, and volunteers of roller derby in general.

Our own John O'Meara is back in Nepal on his quest to summit Mt. Everest. He took a club flag with him so has an excused absence(s) for the next several months. If you would like to follow John and his team's journey you can find it here; www.mountainguides.com
"Down at Base Camp, our IMG climbers are resting and taking a few day hikes. Energy is high, and we are looking for a summit window. They have worked very hard to put themselves in position to summit, and we are all very hopeful that we will get our shot at the summit of Mount Everest in the coming days!"
