Taggin Trains

We have train tracks right behind our shop. Got a slow moving train to go by so we figured we would throw a sticker or two on it.

Upstate Merch Sponsors: CourtKnee Shove

We do a lot of printing for Roller Derby teams, but we really wanted to sponsor a local skater. Lynzi Alden aka “CourtKnee Shove” was a our top pic.

Skater Name: CourtKnee Shove
Number: 426
League: Crown City Rollerz
Team: Royal Pains
Playing Position: Jammer and Blocker
Bio:  A reckless spirit who causes rink riots with her ruthless speed and thrashing demeanor. Her trashy makeup and ripped fish nets may leave you speechless but her baby doll good looks will give you something to talk about. This rebel will skate her opponents into a dark hole of obliteration. CourtKnee may steal your heart but don’t let her age and size underestimate you, this girl will take you from skater to car crash in a second.
CourtKnee Shove was awarded the 2011 triple treat of the season.
Skating sinse 2010. Original member of the Crown City Rollerz

Make sure you make it out to see CourtKnee Shove at one of her bouts. She will be destroying and making us proud!

I uploaded some videos that were saved on my IPhone, and this was one of them. When first got our new building we had a lot of construction to do. This is what we did on breaks. We made a time trials race track for the circus bike.
