    Congratulations on being named Rebel of the Month!!! We at the Town & Country Guide want to thank you as well as the rest of the GRR for all of your time, generosity and excitement regarding our upcoming issue featuring your team in the debut of our new section “The Edge”. We are extremely excited about it and I personally am thrilled to be the one that gets to write about you; the Gainesville Roller Rebels. Congratulations again. You, all of you were awesome to watch on the 2nd (this was our first experience with roller derby). The adrenaline rush was awesome. Thank You Sincerely,
