RCRD Featured in D&C

Rochester's Democrat & Chronicle has done a wonderful story on RCRD.

It's a great look at who we are and what we do, with a bit of our history, a description of how the game is played and a few interviews with some of our members, which offers insight to why we play. Be sure to check it out!

THANKS, D&C!

Special thanks to Victoria Freile, who not only wrote the piece, but also donned a pair of skates, helmet and pads to refresh her childhood skating skills! Read her personal thoughts on the experience, as well as her memories of skating as a kid.
