Blood Bath & Beyond

When: Sat., Aug. 27, 4 p.m. 2011

I’m going to be honest: I’m scared of women. Specifically, those that strap on helmets and wrist guards, lace up their roller skates, and fly around a roller rink with the sole intention of gaining enough momentum to squash anything in their path. It is this type of woman that populates our Lowcountry HighRollers roller derby team. At the Blood Bath and Beyond bout, you will get to see these women rip around McAlister Fieldhouse like Sonic waitresses with the rage virus. The throwdown begins with a rematch between the Charlotte B Dazzlers and Lowcountry HighRollers Bruisin’ Betties. The B Dazzlers won the last match in May, but the Betties are more than ready to exact their revenge. The second half of the event features the Charlotte Roller Girls All-Stars and Lowcountry HighRollers All-Stars going to war. On a less violent note, Blood Bath & Beyond will also include face painting, a prize raffle to support Teacher’s Supply Closet, music by DJ Cassidy, and a bake sale with homemade treats. Bring school supplies to donate to Teacher’s Supply Closet and get $1 off your ticket at the door.
