4. Peck's Pier and Pavilion of roller skates
Peck's Pier was a wooden pier in Manhattan Beach, California, constructed in 1908. Peck's Pier was built in 1908 by George H.
Peck, for whom it was named. Peck was a wealthy real estate developer who owned a lot of property in the area. The pier was located in the area of 33rd and 34th Street and was the only pier in the area open to African Americans.
Peck's Pier and Pavilion was a "promotional attraction" for dances, parties, picnics, and roller skating. According to the city's website, it was destroyed in a 1913 storm, and the pavilion was destroyed in 1920 due to "timber rot". Another source, however, suggests Peck's Pier was torn down by "a combination of storms and social injustice", the same injustice that also put a stop to Bruce's Beach, a nearby black-owned beach resort, and chased off black residents.
The town's first pier, which was conceived to attract new home buyers, above a "newfangled machine to convert the power of the waves into electricity to light the pier", was built in 1901 (Center Street pier, where Manhattan Beach Pier is now located) on what became Manhattan Beach Boulevard. Another wooden pier on Marine Avenue was also built in 1901.

History and organization of roller skates
The Dixie Derby Girls were formed in 2004. In 2006, with two home teams, the Thrill Killers and the Red Hot Riots, the league started holding games at Roller Time. An All-Star team was formed to play teams from other leagues.
The home teams were dissolved in 2008, and the league began using a pair of travel teams, with the A team being the WFTDA charter team. Also in 2008, the league moved its home events to the Von Braun Center. In 2010, the A and B teams adopted new names, the Raging Rockets and Rocket City Rollers respectively.
Following the dissolution of a neighboring league, Rolling Arsenal of Derby, the Dixie Derby Girls partnered with the Rocket City Rebels, a local junior roller derby team, and now play combined events at Insanity Skate Complex in Madison, Alabama. The League is governed by the Board of Directors, with most league decisions made by an executive committee. In 2020, the league rebranded as Rocket City Roller Derby, in part to acknowledge Huntsville's contributions to the Space Program.
