HUBER HEIGHTS – Gem City Roller Derby hits the track again on Sunday, October 9 for the second game of their intraleague home slate at the Orbit Fun Center in Huber Heights.
Fans can expect to see their favorite skaters like Ohio All-Stars Supersonic and Pain Train, and local superstars Reckless Ratchet and Racey Rocker take the track with the league’s bright new talent. Be among the first to witness the promising rookies bout against seasoned veteran skaters. It’s a family-friendly affair that is sure to brighten your Sunday afternoon.
“I was pretty stoked for [first] the bout,” reported rookie skater Jenny Ventling aka Zero Fox. “And also a little nervous since we have a good balance of A-Team skaters, so I knew we’d be up against some tough blockers/jammers. It felt amazing to jam successfully and have my teammates help me. Obviously winning was awesome, and being chosen for MVP meant the world to me.”
Doors open at 5:30pm. The first whistle blows at 6:00pm. The game consists of two 30-minute halves and a 15-minute halftime. Don’t want to miss football? Don’t worry! Fricker’s is right down the street. Enjoy football and beer with the skaters after the bout. You’ll make it in time for the 8:00pm game! Tickets for the bout are $5.00 on the GCRD website and at the door. All children under 8 are free. While seating will be available, spectators who wish to sit track-side are encouraged to bring folding or bean bag chairs.
