Do you love roller derby?
If you do (or even if you don’t know what roller derby is) you’re in luck! Champaign-Urbana is home to the knock ‘em, sock ‘em Twin City Derby Girls, a team of local ladies who tear up the skating rink!
We have a pair of tickets to give away to the July 29 bout against the Boneyard Bombshells at Skateland Savoy!
Here’s some info about the event:
It is all even heading into the second half stretch of TCDG’s 2012 home team season. Each team sports a 1-1 record, as the Boneyard Bombshells and The ‘Paign meet for their rematch.
This time doors open at 5 p.m. with a 6 p.m. start, instead of the previous 7 p.m. whistles for the first two bouts. Tickets are $8 in advance at brownpapertickets.com, or $10 at the door. Children eight and under are admitted free.
The ‘Paign endured their first loss of the season July 15, falling 109-95 to the Damagin’ Dames, who picked up their first win. Dames’ Punchwrap Supreme was named MVP by her ‘Paign peers, while Sasha Smashmouth collected purple’s respect.
Now she and her blue crew seek their second win overall as well as second win over the Bombshells, who also seek their second win overall as well as second straight. Round and round it goes, where the season will stop, nobody knows. Come see what excitement will transpire on the next leg of this wild ride. A portion of the proceeds will benefit TCDG’s charity partner R.A.C.E.S. It’s a win-win: support a good cause and your local roller derby.
All you need to do to win is leave us a comment about why you want to go to the derby this weekend!
Winners will be chosen at random and contacted by the Twin City Derby Girls to get their prize. Good luck!
