Yes, it is almost that time of year again! The Atlanta Rollergirls Flat-Track Roller Derby League (WFTDA) just announced their 2008 Season and even better, that they are finally going to be in the city this year!
From the Atlanta Rollergirls:
The biggest news is our brand-new midtown location! That’s right, this year all your favorite Atlanta Rollergirl bouts will be held in the Yaraab Shrine Center auditorium, located on Ponce de Leon Avenue. It doesn’t get more IN TOWN than that!
PLUS, we’re giving you DOUBLE HEADERS on the second SATURDAY of every month!
Double-headers mean more hard-hitting action between your favorite teams AND the opportunity to see our all-star team battle their interstate rivals from across the country. We also have STADIUM SEATING to provide a more comfortable view.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! Just in case you think you might get antsy between bouts during these double-headers, the new Midtown venue will feature a Bizarre Bazaar midway complete with street performers, face painting and games for kids, as well as catering, VIP upgrades (21+ only), a rollergirl autograph table and more!
All 2008 Atlanta Rollergirls bouts will be held at the Yaarab Shrine Center auditorium in Midtown
(400 Ponce De Leon Avenue, plenty of free, gated parking)
LIMITED NUMBER OF TICKETS AVAILABLE:
$13 in advance; $15 at the door; $6 age 10 and under
