The Journey



Our journey began in Bradford, Ontario for our Across The Prairies Tour. First stop: Sault Ste. Marie. Our goal was to be there around dinner time but as it happened we arrived at 3:30am the next day....getting packed took a smidge longer then anticipated.
 
 



Monster Muffin's Zombie Dept. truck loaded and ready to go!






Canada is SO beautiful.


The Navigator.
Just outside of Thunder Bay we blew a whole right through the turbo boot....I'm pretty sure that's what it is, Antoine will probably correct me later. But anyways here's a pic of him under the truck on the side of the highway pulling it out for some good old fashion' duct tape repairs!



Fixen' er up.

Duct Tape: will get you over 500km when you need to!


We stopped in EVERY town looking for a replacement part and even came close a couple of times but ended up having to limp it on into Winnipeg....not bad though, over 500km on duct tape! The next morning we rolled into Cummins and the guys there were absolutely fantastic. They phoned up all their contacts and eventually found a guy (on a Saturday) who not only had one but was willing to drive 45min into town to deliver it. I'm telling you, all these guys were the best!


Our Hero's at Cummins, Winnipeg.




We lost a bit of time so we had to rip on through straight to Alberta. Everyone told me how flat the prairies are but it's a totally different feeling when your there to experience it. You can see as far as the horizon in every direction...it's crazy but beautiful.

Sooooo flat it goes on forever..........
So now we're here on Alberta. We're meeting up with a few stores and going to vend at a roller derby bout in Red Deer on Saturday. Will post more pictures and stories soon....hopefully no more that include a brake down!

Monster Muffin Tours The Prairies

That's right! We're about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime! Next week, we're jumping in the truck, loading it full of derby shorts and setting our sails for Alberta.



We were planning our route the other night and I know Canada is big, but when you really start to count the hours and measure the kilometers you reeeeally get an idea as to just how big our country is!
One of many buttons we'll be bringing with us.

So heres the deal, we want to stop and say hi to some super awesome Canadian roller debry teams and derby stores but unless we want to be on the road for a month we have to limit our stops. Now we're driving there and back so there's two opportunities to catch us on the way by, I've outlined a rough schedule below...I say rough becasue you never know what can happen on the road.....so if you'd like us to stop by your hometown of derby awesomeness let us know and we'll see what we can do!

Wednesday Aug 15th jump in the truck and go! Landing us in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario for the night.
Thursday Aug 16th make our way to Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Friday Aug 17th scoot on over to Winnipeg, Manitoba
Saturday Aug 18th enjoy the day in Winnipeg and do a little snoopin around
Sunday Aug 19th make our way to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Monday Aug 20th drive on up to Edmonton Alberta!!

Once in Alberta we'll be visiting some teams and of course the wonderful Mezmerize Derby Wear and Bad Girlfriend Skates, two amazing derby stores that carry our derby shorts.

Derby Shorts For Everyone!!!

So there you have it ladies and gents, you now know where and when we'll be. So, if your team is interested in having Monster Muffin set up at a bout or just to stop in and say hi let us know...first come first serve!

Derby Love,
Miss Muffin

PS Our stops for on the way back are yet to be determined so stay tuned!

It's Blogging Time!

Oh My Goodness!
Where has time gone?! SO much had happened since our last blog.....ok where to start. 
Well as most of you already know, about two weeks ago we launched our very first Roller Derby Team Uniforms Catalogue which has been going fantastically. Teams form across Canada have been contacting us and we're suuuper excited! If you're just hearing about this now feel free to email us and we'll send you a copy (info@monstermuffin.com) We're in the midst of getting in on our website but since each order is customized and unique we're working on a way to get it on there organized and easy to view. But for you our loyal blog readers we have posted a few images to drool over....

Our very first derby girls to wear our team uniforms:
Coyote Convict and Hash'em Slash'em
Onto to some other news we just got back this weekend form an amazing derby tournament in Sarnia called The Roller Derby Spring Clean Up hosted by The Crude Oil Crushers. It was an amazing event full of bad ass fun loving derby girls and supporters! I believe they’re going to turn this into a yearly event and I highly recommend making it out to next year's show. To everyone who came out "Thanks for being so amazing!!"

Oh Oh! And in other news...this isn't even on our website either...yet...Monster Muffin is an official sponsor of TORD (Toronto Roller Derby) We very excited to be able to support these ladies and we look forward to being at all the events to meet everyone.

I think that's about it, if I make these blogs too long anyways I'm pretty sure half of you won't read them....I know I wouldn't ;) Short sweet and simple is where it's at!
