Next up, the Dam City Rollers will be traveling to Apple City’s Bavarian Bruisefest tournament in Leavenworth WA for a two-day,10-team tournament in January, followed by a triple header back on home turf in March with Farmers Slaughter and the Killjoys.
Then it’s off to Portland two weeks later to play in the home arena of the best team in the world, Rose City Rollers. Granted we’ll be playing their house team The Wreckers, but we’re sure to learn a lot and have an amazing time. We’re working hard on pulling in a few more games before we wrap up the season.
