First Friday 2017 Recap

As December approaches, we wanted to reflect on the amazing times we had sharing local roller derby with the Tarpon Springs community.

We had the privilege of a booth right on the corner of Tarpon Avenue and Hibiscus Street in Downtown Tarpon Springs, by the popular Replay Amusement Museum.

We met so many amazing Pinellas County locals who shared in the excitement of roller derby. We had a blast answering questions, petting adorable dogs, and learning about all of the other amazing local businesses that help our great city thrive.

Our goal for these events was to share local roller derby with the good people of Tarpon Springs. Having started from scratch in October of 2016, we wanted to let locals know that we were there. Several of our newer skaters met us at the event and came out to be a part of this great sport, and that makes this event more valuable than any treasure chest!

Thank you to the wonderful ladies and gentlemen of Tarpon Springs Merchants Association for a great year of First Fridays. We look forward to being involved again in 2018!

Pirate Bay Roller Derby was formed in October 2016 by a group of ambitious skaters who collectively created the league with the purpose of remaining focused on athleticism & community outreach. Their co-ed team Cutthroat Krewe and their women’s team, The Krakens, have the home port of Astro Skate in Tarpon Springs, Florida. Pirate Bay Roller Derby is made up of skaters from the surrounding counties, including Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough. Each member is dedicated to supporting their teammates, building each other’s self-confidence and skating skills. As a recognized Not for Profit Organization, the league works together to support local charities & businesses, and are proud Pinellas Trail cleaners in the Keep Pinellas Beautiful, Adopt a Mile program.
