Derby Days of Summer

When: Sat., Sept. 29, 6 p.m. 2012

Though the weather is finally cooling off, the competition is just heating up for the ladies of the Lowcountry Highrollers. This Saturday, the Highrollers face off against Augusta, Ga.’s Soul City Sirens in some classic flat-track derby action at the Citadel’s McAlister Field House. Arrive early to see Charleston’s junior team, the Holy City Chaos, take on Georgia’s youngbloods, the Goddaughters of Soul. For the headline bout, one of the Highrollers’ premier derby teams, the Bruisin’ Betties, go up against Augusta’s Soul City Sirens. This should be one of the Highrollers’ more hard-core matches, since the Bruisin’ Betties are a talent-packed squad and many of their skaters aspire to join the ranks of the Highroller’s All-Star traveling team. This is their chance to prove what they’re made of. Come hungry, thirsty, and lucky as there will also be food, beer, and raffles, plus activities for the kids. Afterward, follow the skaters to the Recovery Room, where they’ll either celebrate victory or nurse battle wounds.
