For the Ivy King Cup championships on May 17, we are honoring veterans and first responders. Veteran skaters, staff and fans of the Windy City Rollers know Pap Doc and consider him part of the family. However, long before his career as a private practice medical doctor, Papa served our country as a member of the Air Force. We caught up with Papa Doc this week to ask about his life inside and outside derby, along with his role as veteran.
Ernest Ochoa has been both the man behind the camera and the eyes, ears, and creative brain behind the Windy City Rollers’ promos and video. Long before Ernest carried a camera around UIC Pavilion shooting derby, he was a member of the US Marine Corps, carrying a pack, weapons and more for military missions. In honoring first responders and the military at our May 17 bout, we sat down with Ernest to hear about his experience as a veteran.
A love letter to the Hell's Belles wouldn't be complete without hearing from co-captain Abita! Down. So. Much. Love.

We may be aggressive on the track, but once the last whistle blows, there is nothing but derby love. To commemorate 10 years of WCR adoration, we asked the captains to write a letter expressing their undying dedication to their team. This letter is from the Head of Officiating, Death Knellie, to her beloved Officials.
“We got some really solid transfers and draft picks this year, all of whom fit in seamlessly with our team. It’s something that’s really helped us regroup and rebuild faster.”
