Yes, this story has an Edmonds connection — one of the Jet City Rollergirls founders, one current player and an official are from Edmonds — and even though they are in Everett, we can’t resist publicizing their bouts — just for the fun of it!
The 2011 Roller Derby Championships have arrived, and you can be there on Saturday, May 7 in the Everett Community College gym to watch a double-header full of hard-hitting, flat-track roller derby action.
The first bout of the night will be a grudge match between Carnevil and the Hula Honeys — and these teams have a score to settle. Carnevil still has the taste of their last victory fresh in their mouths, while the Hula Honeys will be looking for revenge against the side show freaks in purple. Will the Hulas be able to “lei” the smack down once and for all? Or will evil prevail in the last match up of the season? Be there to find out!
The championship bout will pit the Camaro Harem against the Pink Pistols. The Harem is poised and ready to claim the championship title from the Pistols, and you know they won’t give it up without a fight. Will the Pistols be able to keep their championship trophy or will they relinquish the honors to the ladies in orange? Get your tickets today and cheer on your favorite team as they go skate-to-skate at the Everett Community College Gym.
Group discounts available for 10 or more tickets purchased online in advance. Grab some friends to bring to the bout and save $2 on each ticket. More information is here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/170650
Jet City Rollergirls reminds fans that roller derby is a dangerous sport to play and to watch. “Only those fans that are 18 and older will be allowed to sit trackside on the floor – due to the chance of getting a flying rollergirl in your lap!”
