THIS SATURDAY: Double Header, Men's and Women's Roller Derby!!!!!!
Saturday August 14th 2010 is going to be a big day for roller derby in Rome NY.
The doors to JFK Arena open at 4pm.
At 5pm, The Quadfathers take the track in their first full-length bout versus the Connecticut Death Quads. If you liked what you saw on May 8th in the men's scrimmage we hosted, you will LOVE seeing real team-on-team men's roller derby action.
At 7pm, the ladies of CNYRD's Utica Clubbers will take the track versus the CT Rollergirls' mixed A&B team. CNYRD is SOOOOO excited to be sharing the track with the CT Rollergirls, who have been some of our biggest proponents, helpers, and mentors both in building our league from the very beginning, and in the process of being a WFTDA apprentice. We look forward to sharing the track with them again (and showing them all that we've learned muahahaha! :)
After almost a year of travel planning CNYRD is excited to have a special guest for this bout, all the way from The Romsey Town Rollerbillies in Cambridge UK, our leopard and zombie green friend, Trash Gash.
As usual, advance sale tickets can be purchased for $10.
They can be purchased online from ticketderby.com by clicking HERE.
Advance sale tickets can be purchased in person from the Tramontane Cafe (Utica), Cafe Domenico (Utica) or Bill's Variety Store (Rome).
Tickets can be purchased at the door for $12. $1 of every ticket sold at the door is donated to the YWCA's Domestic Violence Programs.
Adults age 65 and over and children 10 and under are free.
The national anthem will be performed this bout by The Beam Brothers.
Music for the ladies bout will be provided by DJ DeafGeoff aka Funk Roll Brother #303 of The Quadfathers (he'll be a little busy during the men's portion!)
We hope that you can join us for this huge day of derby! It's 2 bouts for the price of 1, and twice the fun!
