ROLLER DERBY SKATER
Wonderful I came across your site on the internet. I so much enjoyed the old day in Philly and my Dad used to take me. It was so much fun. I think they used to put you on Channel 17, which was UHF and your needed a converter box. I miss that. I saw some Roller Derby on TV a while ago but it wasn't the same. You need that banked track.
Hope you are well and wanted to say thank you for a lot of fun.
Judy, what a joy it is to know you are a member of the Royal Family of God. I was a Warrior fan back in the 70"s watching the games every Sunday in Philly. I still have my Warrior fanbook "We the Warriors". Now you are a Warrior for the Lord. Blessings upon you and the ministry God has given to you.
I saw you at the Capital Roller Skating Rink in Trenton NJ in the 60's. I was too shy to speak to you or ,God forbid, ask for an autograph back then. I loved to watch you skate. You were a very positive role model for girls and young women. I just wanted you to know what a great impression that you made on a shy awkward teen. You were our SUPERSTAR. Thanks, Jo-Ann
Just wanted to tell you how cool I think you are. I was very lucky to have seen you skate a few times when the Warriors came to South Flordia. You shine just as bright now as you did then ( Even more so ) Keep up the great work you do.

You were equal but you had an inner beauty that could not be matched. You were also a pretty good musical performer. Did anyone ever tell you in those days you looked like Anne Murray the singer - I thought you two could be twins. Thanks for the Memories.

She was one of the greatest female skaters of all time but she is also one of the best people I know. God Bless You for making their dreams come true and walking them around the track like that! "
It's been a long time since I wrote you, but in spirit, when August 6 comes around, I always hope you have a wonderful and blessed birthday.
Judy, I was reading the Philadelphia Inquirer this Sunday when I saw a familiar picture of you and Judy Sowinski on the track. My heart sunk when I realized it was to publicize the loss of one of my favorite players. Ms. Sowinski bought such joy to her fans - May she rest in peace.
Judy, on your special day, I wish to thank you for all the joy you bought to my life and to many, many others. Your work in helping others to find God and, the God within themselves, can and never will go unnoticed. Your light shines in every heart and soul you've ever touched, and that light has been passed on. Happy Birthday Judy Arnold! And, many, many more. Judy, though we met for only a brief moment many years ago, you touched my spirit with your kind smile and gentle way. The light I saw that day still burns bright in my heart and soul. THANK YOU, my friend in faith.

"HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUDY! YOU ARE THE MOST AWESOME AND WONDERFUL LADY, I HAVE EVER MET! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT AND GUIDANCE THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN TO ALL OF US.....LOVE YOU!"
I would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday! Enjoy your event in Redding tonight. Your age now matches your number from your Warrior uniform. But then, mine matches the Kruse twins' number. It seems not that long ago that I was watching you and the gang every Sunday for 2 hours on Channel 48 in Philadelphia. Okay, it's been several decades, but having found your website and seeing the video and pictures from the reunion in 2007 sure brought back memories of my favorite show on TV -- the Roller Game of the Week. You were always my favorite skater on the women's side, while Jim Trotter became my favorite male skater once he joined the Warriors. I had dreams of being a Warrior, knowing I could wear my glasses in game action because Ellen Ferretti, Irene Jeter, Judy Woodard, and the infamous Diane Syverson all did (plus Buddy Atkinson, Paul Rupert, and Daniel Augustus Reilly), but the league folded before I ever got the chance to beat up Gooch for calling you a (curse word that went out over the air) broad -- that and a precancerous bone spur on my right foot ended my opportunity.
Anyway, enjoy your birthday and a whole lot more!
The Glasses Girl,
