"Caught in the worldwide whirlwind of roller derby was Miss Metal Militia, who began her training in Vancouver, Canada with Terminal City Rollergirls, after skating artistically as a child. Upon her return to Hamilton, New Zealand, she decided to start a league at home."
For the past five years the Hellmilton Roller Ghouls have hosted representatives from leagues all over New Zealand at the annual International Tattoo and Art Expo. The Hellmilton Roller Ghouls hosted their first bout in 2011, inviting teams from Mount Militia Derby Crew (Mount Maunganui), Taranaki Roller Corps (Taranaki region), and Pirate City Rollers. Later the same year, three women from Hellmilton Roller Ghouls were selected as part of Team New Zealand (Roller Derby Team New Zealand). Together they travelled to compete in the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. These players were Miss Metal Militia, Poison Petal, and Boom Shakalaka. Team New Zealand placed 8th out of 13 teams. In 2014 Hellmilton Roller Ghouls also had two skaters selected to play in the most recent Roller Derby World Cup in Dallas, Texas; Miss Metal Militia and Miss Crunchbull. Team NZ is now ranked 5th out of 30 teams worldwide, with help from these ladies.
Raggedy Angst is the Hellmilton Roller Ghouls' travel team, chosen after try-outs at the beginning of every year. This team competes against other teams around New Zealand, travelling as well as hosting bouts. Raggedy Angst's team colours are black and orange.
The Hellmilton Roller Ghouls completed their first home season in 2012 with their two home teams Gang'Green (Black & Green) and Ultra Violent (Purple & Silver). These two home teams play against each other at Melville Skate Rink.
In July 2013 the Junior Monstar Squad was born, welcoming a younger generation of skaters into the midst of the Hellmilton Roller Ghouls. These members are of both genders and range from 9 to 17 years. They are split up into two groups; the Mogwais who are learning the skills and the Gremlins who are the official junior bouting team.
Since the summer of 2000, Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malm have been connected by the resund Bridge, which carries rail and road traffic. As a result, Copenhagen has become the centre of a larger metropolitan area spanning both nations. The bridge has brought about considerable changes in the public transport system and has led to the extensive redevelopment of Amager. The city's service and trade sectors have developed while a number of banking and financial institutions have been established. Educational institutions have also gained importance, especially the University of Copenhagen with its 35,000 students. Another important development for the city has been the Copenhagen Metro, the underground railway system which opened in 2000 with additions until 2007, transporting some 54 million passengers by 2011.
On the cultural front, the lavish Copenhagen Opera House, a gift to the city from the shipping magnate Mrsk Mc-Kinney Mller on behalf of the A.P. Mller foundation, was completed in 2004. In December 2009 Copenhagen gained international prominence when it hosted the worldwide climate meeting COP15.
