Support the troops! (except no chocolate or scented sunblock.)


For those of you unaware, there is a Roller Derby bout in Connecticut this Saturday July 9th at the CT Sports Center (doors open at 6pm, show starts at 7pm).

There’s some added fun in that the roller ladies are helping the VFW collect supplies to send to troops! Not supplies like bullets and missiles, supplies like stuff for care packages.

So if you can come you should bring something to donate! The following is a quote from the CTRollerGirls event page:

They’ve requested food (trail mix without chocolate, jerky, snacks, protein bars, etc.), toiletries (unscented sunblock, lip balm, shampoos, etc.), white cotton socks without logos, pillow cases, and towels, or just stop by their table with a cash donation. CTRG loves, supports, and thanks our service members!

Okay… who the crap would want trail mix without chocolate? If I were a troop I’d be happy with trail mix, but waaaay happier with chocolate trail mix. Even if all the chocolate melted in the desert turning the bag into a gooey pile of delicious. The key word there is delicious.

Let’s help the cause and show our support! Bring some stuff!

    I wonder if it has something to do with the chocolate potentially going bad. The oils might get rancid. Who knows how long it takes to get to the actual Soldiers.
