Best Fresh Meat Moment: The sweet relief of passing level ones.

Favorite Derby Memory: Sitting in the suicide seating with Caddy Compton at Dorton for the November 2011 bout and realizing what a wonderful league we had become a part of, and the immeasurable level of support there is from players and fans.

Name Inspiration: My original derby name was a bit politically incorrect, and when it came time to change it I had already identified with Ava. I became Ava Gore, as a homage to Eva Gabor.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Does being able to reach things on the top shelf count as a super power? If so I'll take that please!
