Roller derby fans, the wait is almost over. This Saturday night at Memorial Hall in KCK, the Kansas City Roller Warriors kick off their 13th season of flat track mayhem, and you won’t want to miss it.
Doors open Saturday night at 5:00 p.m., and the games begin at 6:00.
The evening begins with the Dreadnought Dorothys, who went undefeated in ’17 until their stunning loss in the Rink of Fire, taking on a Victory Vixens team looking to up their game this time around after going only 1-5 last year. There are a number of new faces on the track this season, and that’s always exciting for the fans, but it also signals a slew of new possibilities for the teams on the track. We can’t wait to see how this one shakes out this weekend.
The second game of the night features the 2017 Rink of Fire champions, the Black Eye Susans, taking on their traditional house rivals, the Knockouts, who are also looking to ramp things up in ’18 after a 2-4 season last year. Keeping in mind that BES only boasted a 3-3 record going into last year’s championship bout, this one also looks to be a bit of a nailbiter, new faces notwithstanding. Bottom line, get there early and get a good seat, because this Saturday night is going to be nuts.
Adult tickets are $15 at the door — certainly the best value of any sports league in Kansas City, professional or otherwise. Kids ages 6-12 are $10, and chickadees 5 and under are admitted free, as always.
Whatever else you do in 2018, do not miss the 13th season of the Kansas City Roller Warriors!
