Roller Derby returns to First Arena
At 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, the First Arena will close out The Dolls of Destruction's first home season for the Twins Tiers premier roller derby team. The dolls will be bouting against Enchanted Mountain Roller Derby from Olean, N.Y. Be prepared for hard hits and major bruises as the blockers whip the jammers around the track in order to be the highest scoring team to win the bout. The bout is being held at the First Arena, Elmira, N.Y.; doors will open at 5 p.m. and the game starts at 6 p.m. Prices at the door for general admission is $12, and $14 for the crash zone, children 10 and under are free. Members of the audience in the crash zone can look forward to being a part of the action and can occasionally have a roller girl thrown into their laps. Tickets can be purchased at the door and through the First Arena Box Office or www.blackdiamonddames.com. Order in advance for $2 off each ticket.
Whether you come for the hits or the "boutfits", roller derby is a sport that everyone can enjoy. The outfits can be extreme and the hits are hard. Come out and watch your local roller girls skate their hearts out in one of the last full contact all female sports left.
If you are unsure how the game is played or are interested in joining, contact The Dolls of Desctruction on Facebook or come see us practice at Troy Skateland in Troy, PA on Mondays and Thursdays from 6-9 p.m.
