Sat. 7/2/11: Summer CRUSH!

July 2nd Summer Crush: Double Header

Rome Wreckers v. Utica Clubbers

Blue Collar Betties v. Jersey Shore Roller Girls’ 'Beat Downs'

Come out, July 2, for what may prove to be the most exciting double header of the season! Programs available for the first 200 people through the door so come early!

First up for the night will be the Rome Wreckers (1-2) versus the Utica Clubbers (1-2). The Rome Wreckers are coming off of an incredible win from their last intraleague bout versus the Blue Collar Betties, in which they pulled out a stunning 133-119 win. This win creates an exciting match-up for the July 2 bout. The Rome Wreckers will be playing the Utica Clubbers to decide who advances to the Championship Bout. Previously, the Utica Clubbers beat the Rome Wreckers in their first intraleague bout, but two months have elapsed since that first meeting and both teams have demonstrated impressive improvements.

The final bout of the evening will be the Blue Collar Betties (3-1 intraleague play) versus Jersey Shore Roller Girls’ ‘Beat Downs’. The Betties have consistently demonstrated a high level of play with only one loss this season. They are excited to break out of intraleague play for the night and take on a visiting team.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and the first bout begins at 5:30 p.m. As always, ages 10& under and 65& over are FREE. Advance sale tickets can be purchased online ($9), or at any of our four regular presale locations; The Tram Café on Lincoln Ave in Utica, Cafe Domenico on Genessee St in Utica, Bill's Variety on W Thomas St in Rome, and at the Black River Ale House on Black Rvr Blvd in Rome ($8).

$1 of each ticket sold at the door ($10) will be donated to our 2011 season non-profit partner, the Oneida-Lewis Arc.

June 26th 12pm: Blue Collar Betties v. Rome Wreckers Friends and Family Bout

June 26th Blue Collar Betties v. Rome Wreckers

On Sunday, June 26, CNYRD will host another exciting intraleague event. This will be the final intraleague bout for the Blue Collar Betties before they advance to the Championships on July 30th. The Blue Collar Betties have been enjoying an undefeated season with a 3-0 record. Though the Rome Wreckers have yet to secure a win, every bout they have competed in has been incredibly close this season. This bout will certainly be exciting as the last pairing of these two teams ended with a 1 point win for the Blue Collar Betties!

This bout will be a “Friends and Family” event. What this means is that we invite you, our friends and family, to come watch with a suggested donation at the door of $3.

There are no programs, no vendors, no halftime show, no fancy introductions etc......this is bare bones roller derby. We run it as a regulation bout in every way, and we take it very seriously, but it is not a full production event. We will have some league merchandise available for sale, and the arena will likely do light food and drink vending.

This event is at JFK Arena, 500 W Embargo St, Rome NY 13440

Bring a camp chair if you want comfortable seating on the floor area.
