2013 Oregon roller derby all-star team: Referee

See also

Rose City's Wench Warden won a tight race for the top referee in Oregon for 2013. So it looks like he's retiring in style this year. Here's what some of the voters had to say about him...

"I love and will miss seeing Wench Warden on the track greatly, as he is retiring. He was one of the refs I felt like did the best job of managing my own coaching I loved coming out to the middle for the umpteenth time with the same or similar request, to be met with the classic Wench half-smirk, but also the standard Wench professionalism. Great guy, on and off the track! One of the best at making sure a potentially heated game or moment stays calm and collected, and most importantly, fair and balanced." - Thurston Gore

"Warden has been a staple of the RCR ref crew for as long as we’ve been in derby. The juniors know that Warden will be unbiased and that he knows his job. During scrimmages, he always takes the time to let them know what they did and how to fix it next time. His retirement this year is a great loss the ref community." - Mama Tempest

Also don't forget to "like" the Roller Derby Examiners on Facebook. There are a few of us cooking up these all-star articles covering states and provinces all over North America. So it'll be kinda fun to compare and contrast the different lists.
