Due to the Fort McMurray wildfires, the first home game originally scheduled for May 7th was cancelled, along with other planned summer home games. Luckily, the Heartland Roller Derby Associating reached out a helping hand to help the Betties host their first home away from home game in Fort Saskatchewan on August 2!  The Rookie Invitational was a huge success, with the White team winning 261 to 229 to the Black team. Next up was the Tar Sand Betties vs. OCRD co-ed team game. A super fast and action packed game. The scoring was close throughout! OCRD won 161 to 151.
