This weekend features another perilous Saturday night in which Kansas City roller derby fans must choose their league. These things happen, especially to us. When you follow as much derby as we do, you’re bound to run into date conflicts, and until technology catches up with our love of derby, we can only be in one place at a time.
Above all, we like to keep readers informed so they can make informed choices about how to spend their roller derby dollar. We love our Dead Girls and Blacksnake ladies, but stop scheduling games on the same night, mmmkay? Kthx.
Dead Girl Derby – Game 3
Hale Arena is the place to be for Dead Girl Derby action Saturday night. Doors open at 5:00, the first game begins at 6:00, and you won’t want to miss this one. It’s the last game of the season before the championship games on August 16th. The Deadly Sirens take on the formidable Shotgun Sheilas in game one of the night’s festivities, and the reigning champion Royal Pains face off against the Lovely Lethals in game two.
KC Derby Digest will be there, camera in hand, to document the madness, so get to Hale Arena early and don’t miss these incredible ladies in one of their final games under the Dead Girl Derby name. Adult tickets at the door are $15, kids 6-12 are $7, and children 5 and under are admitted free.
Wicked Witches of the Mid-West
For Blacksnake Rollergirls action on the flat track, there is only the St. Joseph Civic Arena, and that’s where you can find this outstanding league this Saturday night. This weekend’s Wizard of Oz themed event will first feature the Kansas City Roller Warriors Junior Derby league in game one, followed by a two-team Blacksnake mash-up contest in game two.
Tickets at the door are $12 for adults, $7 for kids 6-12, and $0 for rugrats ages 5 and under. Doors open at the Civic Arena at 5:00. They also have a Chuck-a-Duck contest for great prizes, as well as a 50/50 drawing for cashola.
Best of luck to all the ladies of Kansas City and St. Joseph roller derby this Saturday night! Be sure to follow us on The Twitter for all the scores and highlights this weekend, and we will see you trackside, Kansas City. Roll on!
