Roller derby season kicks off with a mighty double header
It’s derby time!
The West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League launches into its third season with their season opener on Friday, April 13th at the Rossland Arena, first whistle at 6pm. It’s a double-header between Salmo’s Babes of Brutality and Nelson’s Lumber Jackies, then Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers and Rossland’s Gnarlie’s Angels.
The 2012 season will see twenty-six bouts hosted in the West Koots, primarily in Rossland (where the arena provides a dedicated derby surface from April through September), and both the Castlegar and Nelson Community Complex when the ice comes out. The season features six (6) double-header bouts, three (3) Kootenay Kannibelles home games and the semi-final and championship bouts, to be held on weekends and featuring the full entertainment package: half-time show, bar, mobile food concessions, raffles, door prizes, music, announcers… providing suitable entertainment for the whole family! New this year: single mid-week bouts without all the bells-and-whistles for only $5.
Tickets are $10 in advance ($15 at the door, $2 for kids) from in, in , in , RV in and Gerick Cycle & Sport in Trail. On-line tickets sales at www.kootenayrollerderby.com where you can check-out the 2012 Bout Schedule and contemplate the bounty of a seasons pass before they’re gone on April 21st.
