Tinsel Town Knock Down

Saturday night’s Juneau Rollergirls Tinsel Town Knock Down saw some great skating, hard hits and a surprise appearance by the jolly man from the North Pole himself. We aired the show live on TV and hosted a live online discussion on 360north.org.

We loved your comments both through the site and on Twitter and wanted to share some of our photos from the night including a couple behind the scenes peaks of what a TV production looks like.
