Gary Powers, Executive Director of the NRD HOF wrote: To Roller Derby fans throughout the world, the Philadelphia
Spectrum will always be known as 'Judy's Place' honoring JUDY ARNOLD, the women's captain of the legendary Philadelphia Warriors
Roller Games team which skated in the 'City of Brotherly Love' from 1967 thru 1976. Blonde and athletic, JUDY ARNOLD was Roller
Games biggest star wearing #67 for the gold-and-crimson jerseyed Warriors. 16,000
plus fans regularly showed up at the Spectrum to see Arnold and teammates outskate opponents. In October 2007, the National Roller
Derby Hall of Fame celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Warriors move to Philly (from Hawaii in
'67) during a weekend celebration. As I drove Judy Arnold to the hotel from the airport, we drove past the Spectrum and it brought
back a flood of memories for both of us. Long live 'Judy's Place.' THANKS for the memories!!!
