Roller derby returns to Cominco Arerna

Derby descends Trail at the Cominco Area Saturday at 5:00pm, doors open at 4.

Roller derby is heating up in Trail with temperatures set to rise Saturday.

West Kootenay Roller Derby presents a doubleheader at the Comino Arena – the last regular game of the season.

The Rossland Trail Roller Girls intend to make their hometown fans proud by stopping the Nelson Killjoys from securing a win that would put them in 1st place going into the playoffs.

“The crowd can expect to see some hard hits, babes on skates and major fun,” according to RTRG’s Lauren Derksen (aka Shred-Her).
Shred-Her is still earning her derby wings, but her dedication, her sheer will and great attitude indicates she’ll be on the track in no time.

“RTRG is doing great in my opinion,” she said. “This season has brought on a bunch of changes and we as a team have adapted and grown.”

Check out the action at 5 p.m., with doors opening at 4 p.m.

Take a break for a snack and a drink (maybe even line up to win the 50/50 draw, or the fan prize pack!) and then sink back into your seat for more.

The second part of the evening’s entertainment rolls out at 7 p.m. when Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers take on the Lilac City Roller Girls from Spokane.

While Lilac City is ranked higher overall in North America, the Dams are such a force that statistics predicts they’ll win – albeit by a margin of only a few percentage points.

Have a beer with a roller girl and learn more about how the game works, or just enjoy the spectacle and cheer for the dogpiles!

Tickets are available at the door and advance tickets can be found at the Arlington Bar and Grill and Maglio Building Centre in Trail, The Flying Steamshovel in Rossland or online at brownpapertickets.com
