Back in Black: RTRG faces off against old nemesis
The Rossland Trail Roller Girls (RTRG) haven’t had their wings clipped–yet. The newly amalgamated team, made up of the former Gnarlie’s Angels of Rossland and Bad News Betties of Trail, are ready to square off against an old nemesis, Salmo’s Babes of Brutality.
The Babes and Angels toiled back and forth with more bouts against each other than any other team in the West Kootenay Roller Derby League. But the Angels exited the series in the lead, winning Mountain Mayhem III and leaving the league undefeated.
Will RTRG skate with the same ferocity as the Angels did? Come see for yourself.
The much-anticipated match up will be the second showing of the night this Saturday at Selkirk College in Castlegar.
To roll out the double-header event, Nelson’s Killjoys, undefeated this season, are facing off against the Valley Vendettas, which is rounding out as the dark horse.
Doors open at 4 p.m. with the first whistle at 5 p.m.
There will be cold beer, BBQ, a 50/50 draw and more.
Tickets are $10 online or $15 at the door and $2 for children 10 and under.
