On October 15, 2022, the Ventura County Derby Darlins hosted a spooktacular Halloween Double Header home game at our track in Camarillo. Ghosts, spiders, and pumpkins decorated the rink to really raise everyone's spirits.
Spectators were treated to two exciting roller derby bouts packed with action, athleticism, and fierce competition!
Game One at 5pm featured the Vendolls divided into two teams, joined by some guest skaters from other Southern California leagues.

Huge thanks to all our visiting friends who came out to play!
Both bouts also featured an exciting number of raffles donated by the players. Lucky winners walked away with items like a new Nutribullet, potted plants, giftcards to restaurants and comic book stores, and even a trio of coveted Squishmallows. (Feeling the FOMO yet?)
We also had several fabulous vendors present selling skate accessories and other gear. Thank you to these businesses that set up shop at the game:
Rollershirts.com (Check out their site for roller derby shirts, helmet stickers, toe covers, customization for skaters, and more!)
Handmadewithlovesewing.com (Twisted Sewing features skate charms, skate leashes, purses, and wallets with vibrant patterns to give your skating extra flair!)
@ToothGemsBy2Nadi (Cosmetic tooth gems and charms to give your smile an extra shine!)
So, What's Next?
If you missed out on our last home game of the season, never fear! You can still support the team at our Cirque De Ventura Burlesque Fundraiser. Join the team at Paddy's Bar and Lounge on Main Street in Ventura at 9:30pm on November 5th for a night of off-skates entertainment you're sure to love!
The Vendolls will also be skating away against Inland Empire Roller Derby on November 12th, and at SoCal Derby in San Diego on December 3rd. Don't miss your chance to see VCDD in action before the holiday season.
See you soon!
