Veterans Memorial Coliseum
Come see exciting Demolition City Roller Derby action at the downtown Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Coliseum when Dan’s Comp presents the 5th annual Broads on Quads. DCRD’s Dynamite Dolls, ranked #18 in the North Central Region, will face the #23 Derby City Rollergirls from Louisville at 7:30 P.M. This will be the third meeting of these two teams with DCRD holding a 2-1 advantage. After the Dynamite Dolls won the first two meetings, Derby City squeaked out a 1-point, 105-104 win last year.
In the opening event, DCRD’s B team, the Destruction Dames will take on the Lansing Derby Vixens, the Lansing, Michigan A team, at 5:30 P.M. Doors open at 4:30 P.M.
This is not the old circus-type, spectacle derby you may remember from watching old TV, but a true hard-hitting sporting event. You could say it is now a whole lot more like Ice Hockey and a whole lot less like professional wrestling. The girls like to say, “The blood and bruises are real.”
DCRD is a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), the world-wide governing body for roller derby, a sport that has teams on every continent. Currently, there are over 30,000 women playing this amazing sport. Read about WFTDA at http://wftda.com/; to see the regional rankings, click on Leagues, then click on Rankings.
