Angel of the Month March - Mad Dog McGillicuddy
Mad Dog McGillicuddy is Angel City Derby Girl’s Wonder Woman, Cruise Director, Jackie of All Trades, and Hostess With The Mostest. Most importantly, she is a beloved member of ACDG. Mad Dog began skating with ACDG six years ago, and immediately understood that it takes a lot more than a desire to skate to put on a roller derby event. From the beginning, Mad Dog enthusiastically rolled up her sleeves and signed up for many volunteer shifts. When she wasn’t skating, back in the old school, down and dirty style derby bouts, she was there helping to sell cans of soda out of a tub of ice. Her talents for running our events were quickly realized, and she soon became the head of our Events committee. From hosting outdoor games in NoHo, to the Toyota Sports Center, Mad Dog kept offering to help and slowly but surely, hand-in-hand with a few loyal and dedicated minions, has improved the bout experience every time out. Now Mad Dog helps host our games at our new home in Culver City, further proving that every big step ACDG takes, Mad Dog is right there to support it. At every turn, she steps up to deliver the logistics and improve the experience for skaters, officials, volunteers, and the paying audience. Mad Dog does this tirelessly, seemingly effortlessly, and always with that amazing smile on her face. Every incredible ACDG event, from bouts to fundraisers to viewing parties, is due in large part to her Superwomanly prowess behind the scenes. Mad Dog’s enthusiasm, dedication, and hard work inspires every single member of ACDG. And we all know that without Mad Dog, we’d literally be skating in the dark.
