Something evil is lurking at your local roller derby venue; derby skaters from coast to coast are succumbing to the clutches of the undead. Slowly but in ever greater numbers, skaters from WA Roller Derby, Perth Roller Derby and North Brisbane Rollers lurch towards Midvale Speed Dome on October 29 for a big Halloween double header, The Bout of the Skating Dead. Grab your chainsaw, load the shotgun and prepare to fight your way into the WARD Horde to cheer on your All Star team against the Perth Roller Derby Rumble Bees.
This year roller derby in WA was opened up to visiting leagues. Since WA’s very first interstate bout WARD versus South Sea Roller Derby in July, PRD has met Adelaide Roller Derby and now hosts the North Brisbane Brawl Stars. Will Perth Roller Derby be able to improve on its margin from the bout against the Adeladies? What tricks will the Brawl Stars be able to teach the local derby community?
WARD girls haven’t donned the black and green of the WARDs of the Skate all-star team since that SSRD bout and they’ll be itching to represent the league. The last time WARD met PRD it ended in a loss for our girls, but this time around we have a new line up of our most fearsome skaters and the experience of four more bouts under our short-shorts. They’ve done their cardio, they’ve stocked the basement and boarded up the windows. Will they be able to put that double tap to the head of this epic rivalry when they hit the track?
Get your tickets and head to Midvale to see three great leagues satisfy their hunger for braaaaains. But be warned, these derby girls won’t stay dead.
When: Saturday, October 29. Doors open 5pm, first whistle is at 5.45pm.
