When Madison's favorite milkmaids in the Dairyland Dolls skated into Seattle back in April, they showed all of Rat City how things are done in the Midwest. Their blue-and-white uniforms may look sweet and innocent, but the northwesterners in Grave Danger learned quickly how tough the traveling team for the Mad Rollin' Dolls can be. The DDs ended the night with a 116-76 victory.
Hot off a win in this interleague season opener, the Dairyland Dolls are set to battle the Denver Roller Girls' Mile High Club on Saturday, the first in a summer series of matches at home and on the road. This also marks the beginning of a new year for the Mad Rollin' Dolls, which recently wrapped up its fourth season a few weeks back. Now it's time for the travel team to shine.

This marks the final spin with the Dolls for Crackerjack, at least in Madison. A co-founder of the Mad Rollin' Dolls, she is also a skating coach and president of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Following this final season with the DDs, she is online and at Freedom/Knuckleheads, Capitol City Tattoo, Cha Cha Beauty Parlor, the High Noon Saloon, Lakeside Press and Fast Forward Skate Center.
This bout will be followed by a Mad Rollin' Dolls afterparty at the Majestic Theatre, featuring music from DJ Donnie Vendetta and Awesome Car Funmaker. The show is $5, or free for those bearing a bout ticket stub. A portion of the proceeds from this bout, meanwhile, will be donated to the Dane County Humane Society.
More home bouts will be held through the summer, with one on Saturday, July 19 against the Charm City Roller Girls of Baltimore, followed by another on August 30 against the Burning River Roller Girls of Cleveland. These and the away bouts are all building up to this autumn's WFTDA Eastern Regional Tournament, known as the
