Lewisville Lake has been selected as one of five stops in the inaugural season of the Texas Team Trail fishing tournament circuit, launching in 2012. Anglers will visit Lewisville for a one-day event on Saturday, June 9.
The new circuit, designed exclusively for team competition, made stops at Sam Rayburn Lake, Lake Ray Roberts and Lake Livingston before next week’s visit to Lewisville. The series championship will be held Oct. 20-21 at Lake Amistad.
“The Texas Team Trail will create tremendous opportunities for bass tournament anglers throughout the state of Texas,” said Tournament Director Mike Hastings. “The payout structure is incredible and with a low-cost, budget-friendly entry fee, anglers have a real opportunity to cash in. And when you consider the sponsor bonus contingency prizes available, there's just not another team trail in Texas that delivers this much value to the angler.”
House of Quad, a North Texas-based roller derby organization, will officially open its doors June 1st of 2012 and will welcome its skaters to its newly-acquired large facility based in Denton, Texas. The building formally known as Hat Trick, used to house an indoor hockey rink. The building will now become home to the newest roller derby training facility, an exciting venture for Denton and its surrounding areas.
Sorry folks, no time to write this one up, but we do have video of Saturday night's Roller Derby action in Denton. This is the first bout of a double-header, featuring the Main Street Mafia versus the Muertas Locas.
The final score was 129-92, Mafia - handing the Muertas their first defeat.
The video starts in the second quarter, because someone's child got in the camera bag and removed the tripod mount, and someone else didn't check the equipment before driving all the way to Denton, so there was an unplanned trip back to Lewisville.
It's in full HD, so make it full screen for best viewing.

We are confident that our teams, sponsors and spectators will be thrilled with the venue.”
Hooligan penalties and resulting power jams allowed the Main Street Mafia to rack up huge points against the Hickory Street Hooligans in NTDR Women's Flat Track Roller Derby Action Saturday.
Both teams' jammers skated well, but with Hooligan jammers in the box, Mafia picked up massive points in two power jams late in the first half (24 points) and early in the second half (28 points) by Pitbully. These 52 points created a deficit for the Hooligans that all the good skating just could not overcome. The final score only had the Mafia winning by 43.
Hooligans coach Vanilla Ice Pick ("VIP") repeatedly questioned the officials, resulting in numerous official timeouts and deliberations with score-keepers and non-skating officials (NSOs).
Hooligans bench manager Fluffy said there were missing points, points being awarded to the wrong team, and questionable penalty calls. On the video you can see an animated VIP having numerous discussions with the referees.
Mafia defeated the Hooligans with a final score was 157-114.
Game MVPs were: Top Blocker: Cracka Dawn Most Valuable Jammer: Armenian Assault-her Mafia MVP: Pitbully Hooligans MVP: Banned 4 Life
Stats for the season: Muertas Locas: 2-0 Main Street Mafia: 1-1 Hickory Street Hooligans: 0-2
Three bouts remain in the 2012 regular season: - April 28th: Muertas vs. Mafia - May 19th: Hooligans vs. Muertas - June 23rd: Mafia vs. Hooligans.
A championship bout will be held between the top two teams at the end of the season.
