This is such an unfortunate situation. As someone who lived in Maui as a child, and continues to visit, it saddens me that there is little community support for these ladies. I play roller derby for the Santa Cruz Rollergirls and feel so blessed that we have a rink and a venue to skate in. I have heard of other leagues having to drive hours to find a practice space, let alone a venue to bout at. I think that Ortiz seems a bit insecure that these strong athletic ladies are possibly going to be more popular than inline hockey!!! Don't give up ladies, rally community support and make things happen!
