Yes, you read that correctly....we're holding this bout on a Sunday afternoon! In conjunction with the Utica Music & Arts Festival (UMAF), we decided to change this one up a bit and offer a $2 discount to anyone that comes to the door with a UMAF bracelet on. We thought it would be a nice way to wind down from UMAF weekend and we know all of our friends who are organizing it could use a nice relaxing day after a crazy weekend of fun and music! Plus this gives you plenty of time to sleep in after Saturday's bands and still make the bout!
To give a little history, Assault City helped give CNYRD our start back in 2007, and our first big public event was against them in July 2008 when we skated as The Asylum City Lunatics in the original 315 Throwdown. Both teams have come a LONG way since those days. People still talk about what a great bout the Aud event was, and if you thought that was awesome, wait until you see how much both teams have improved!
We have reason to believe that there will be a HUGE amount of Syracuse fans in the house Sunday, so we need our cheering section to make theirs look small!!! C'mon out and get LOOOOUUUUDDD in support of CNY Roller Derby!!!
Doors will open at 2pm and the first whistle will blow at 3pm.
Advance sale tickets are $10 and are available from the Tramontane Cafe (Utica), Cafe Domenico (Utica) and Bill's Variety Store (Rome), or online from Ticketderby.com HERE
Tickets will be available at the door for $12. Over 65 and under 10 are FREE.
Our back to school special: Show up with a college ID and get HALF OFF ADMISSION this bout
Our special guests for this bout are the folks who help run the YWCA Mohawk Valley's Domestic Violence programs, who have been our charity of choice this bouting season. All season we have put aside $1 of every ticket sold at the door from our events into a special account, and after this last bout we will be making an announcement of the final amount and cutting a check to the YWCA. This is your last opportunity to help us help this wonderful cause. there will also be donation jars and information available. Please help us try to push our total donation as high as we can with this last event!
This bout will also feature announcers S-Dot and Ida Feltersnatch.
Music will be brought to you by DJ Deaf Geoff and we will also have live music by Heather Case with special guest!
The after party will be just around the corner at Delvecchio's, 476 W Dominick St
