Description (Brief)
Roller derby DVD entitled, "Texas Rollergirls Rock n Roll Derby - Hustlers vs. Hotrod Honeys." This 2004 DVD documents the Texas Rollergirls 2003 Championship and Third Place Game. It was the first championship game after the league split. Modern roller derby began in 2001 after four teams were formed and founded under the Bad Girls Good Women Productions (BGGW) name. In 2002, the Texas Rollergirls were formed from 65 members of the first BGGW teams after a disagreement over management practices caused a permanent split. BGGW took the remaining 15 skaters and became the TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls forming a banked track league. The flat track derby uses a not-for-profit organizational model with skaters running the leagues and using their own money to buy rink time, produce tournaments, print programs and putting any money earned back into the organization.
