Marvelous shot by Sean Childs from our Albany bout
Our third home season starts Saturday, May 25, when our Breakwall Bombshells host the lovely and talented Roc City Roller Derby B-Sides at Crisafulli Rink. To say we’re excited is an understatement!
Doors open at 5 p.m. with a 6 p.m. whistle for the opening bout, as the new Port City Roller Derby Lagoon Squad juniors, ages 10 to 17, take on Black Mamba Junior Derby. Port City’s Breakwall Bombshells and Rochester’s B-Sides should take the floor around 7:45.
We posted a 7-6 record in 2012, but with a returning core of several seasoned veterans and an up-and-coming rookie class, we look onward and upward for 2013! We’ll have five home bouts (season tickets are available online!) as well as travel all over New York and into Canada to play the greatest sport on earth.
Advance tickets for the home opener cost $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 12, with children 4 and under admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at the door but will cost $12 for adults. You can purchase advance tickets at this online link or from any PCRD league member. Attendees interested in trackside seating are encouraged to bring their own chairs.
A portion of the proceeds will support the H. Lee White Marine Museum, which does such a wonderful job of keeping our Port City heritage alive!
So mark your calendars, buy your tickets and make the other necessary preparations to cheer four great teams on our opening night!
