Hits, Whips and Two Smoking Jammers

The ladies of the West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League are back and ready for a full season of action!  The off-season was hard on everybody, but the team’s have been working hard, and fans around the west Kootenays can now get their much-anticipated derby fix!

The next bout of the 2012 season takes place on  April 28 at the Rossland Arena.  The bout, entitled “Hits, Whips, and Two Smoking Jammers” is a double-header, with the home team, Rossland’s Gnarlies Angels, taking on Nelson’s Killjoys in the first match-up of the night.  The second game has Trail’s Bad News Betties going head to head with Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers in the Bettie’s first regular season game.  It will be an adrenalin-filled evening of speedy jamming, bad-ass booty blocking, and of course, all the spills and thrills one can handle.  Just what every derby fan hopes  for!  

Come out and cheer on your favourite derby dames – doors open at 5 p.m., and first whistle blows at 6 p.m.  Tickets to this live roller derby event are $10 in advance, or $15 at the door and kids under 12 are just $2.  For more information, and to secure your tickets to this event, check out the WKWRDL website at
