Appreciation: Sugar Britches

She's been my derby sister since the day I met her.   I guess that's really the night I met her,  as she bought me my first shot of Jameson during an after party.

the question is...

When does one know when to call it quits for reffing?  I've done this now for seven full years, which is more than most anything else I've done in my life.  I don't think I'm ready to quit, but I find myself at a bit of a loss these days regarding my derby career.

I'm going to start writing these appreciations of some skaters that I never got to get bios from.

Just Dash profile

Real Name: 

What is the origin of your derby name and number? 

Just Dash was a joke from my first league. I was rostered to bout but still didn't have a skater name, so they put a "-" mark in the name column. Someone jokingly said "you're Dash" and it stuck. My original number was K2, which was from my family. My sister and brother are also K names, so in family notes my Mom referred to us as K1, K2 (me) and K3. It changed when letters were removed from numbers to a countdown of 321.

What did you do athletically before you got into derby? 
A little bit of everything growing up. Downhill skiing, swim team, soccer, basketball, cross country running, tennis, water skiing, volleyball.... Mostly competitive horse back riding, show jumping for close to 10 years. I love the outdoors and variety. Currently practice yoga, hike & backpack, ski & snowboard, rock climb - bouldering, and occasionally just run.
