Roller Derby: It is What We Are Thankful For!

Capitol Hill, DC---This Sunday, November 21, the DC Rollergirls will roll back into the DC Armory for the second bout of their fifth season.

Two-time champions Scare Force One will take the track again for the first time since their Championship loss to the DC DemonCats last season. With longtime favorites Gun'Her Down and dr. SKabs now skating solely for the DC All-Stars, the Fright Attendants have bolstered their ranks with new blood: rookies Brutal Noodle and Martha Squashington, former Nashville Rollergirl Chinese Checker and original DCRG member Helena Handbag. 

Scare Force might be focused and ready for action, but will it be enough to compete with the heart and teamwork of the Cherry Blossom Bombshells? During last month's home opener, the Bombshells started out with a deficit against the DemonCats, but were able to close the gap in the second half, although they did not walk away from the Armory with a win. They're determined not to let victory slip from their grasp again.

The hard-hitting derby action will start at 4 p.m. with a 30-minute expo bout between the DC DemonCats and the Motley Crew (made up of members of the DC All-Stars and the DCRG Meat Locker). Fans can also expect more great skating during half time courtesy of the Anacostia Rollers, a local jam skate crew. After the bout, fans are welcome to join us at the Red Palace for the official DC Rollergirls after-party, featuring PBR specials.

Tickets are just $12 for ages 12 and up, $6 for children 6 to 11 and free for kids 5 and under. They are available in advance through Ticketmaster or at the door on bout day. Individuals with a valid military I.D. receive admission for only $10 at the door.

The D.C. Armory is located at 2001 East Capitol Street, SE, in Washington. Secure lot parking is available for $7. In addition, the Armory is adjacent to the Stadium-Armory Metro Station on the Blue and Orange lines.
