The West Kootenay Roller Derby League is starting 2014 with a double-header at Selkirk College, Castlegar, on Saturday, March 29 at 5 p.m.

Bout 1, Dam City Rollers take on the unknown Valley Brutality.  Valley Vendettas and Babes of Brutality have joined forces and created a team that combines Valley’s teamwork with Salmo’s ferocity – but the Dams play to win and are working hard! Dam City’s consistency against Valley Brutality’s energy, this game will be one of the toughest of the season and will set the tone for 2014 derby.

After drinks, snacks and prizes at halftime, on to Bout 2!  After a victory in Kelowna this month and last year’s Golden Boot, Nelson Killjoys are ready for the Rossland Trail Roller Girls (RTRG) at 7 p.m., and both are determined to win. The RTRG have been developing new skaters, with some hot talent to watch. From newbies to veterans, RTRG has been building momentum – and with the Killjoys starting 2014 with targets on their helmets, RTRG gets the first shot.

Be sure to buy tickets before they sell out, available at Selkirk College Book Store, Central City Shoes in Castlegar, and online at
