Salon 188 owner Lisa Salmon held a cut-a-thon at her salon in April and offered discounted haircuts and other services to raise funds to support the Castle Rock ‘n Rollers, a local women’s roller derby team, of which Salmon is a team member. “I’ve been a stylist for 35 years and this is my first cut-a-thon; I thought this would be a great way to help raise money for the team,” said Salmon.
Salmon, known as “Nacho Mama,” (Salmon’s team moniker) is in training to earn a spot with other team members to compete in their league. Salmon’s daughter Penny, aka “Penny Butter and Jelly,” skates with a junior league team called “The Runaways.” The Castle Rock ‘n Rollers roller derby team was established in 2008 by a group of women from the Castle Rock area, some of whom had prior skating experience. Team members include businesswomen, stay-at-home moms, students, and others from all different age groups and stages of life. They promote camaraderie, community, and focus on the athleticism of the sport of roller derby.
