The Ladies Take Colorado

The Ladies of the Rolling Pin had a blast at the Prime Ale in Berthoud, CO this past July!  Thanks to our gracious hosts, Breathless in Berthoud.  It was wonderful to meet so many amazing Border Morris teams.  We are pleased to report that the Ladies have as much fun at 6,000 feet as they do at sea level!

May Day Postponed

Due to torrential rain, the Ladies have decided to postpone our May 1 sunrise dance. We will celebrate May Day on Friday, May 2 at 5:40 a.m. This gives you an extra day to pick up your copy of RI Monthly, which includes a lovely write up on this tradition! We’ll see you on Friday, by the Towers in Narragansett!
