FOCO GIRLS GONE DERBY AND SLAUGHTERHOUSE DERBY GIRLS
Face off Sunday, July 19, in Northern Colorado’s first
ROLLER DERBY BORDER WAR
At the Budweiser Events Center
5290 Arena Circle, Loveland
Bout begins at 3 p.m.
It’s no secret there’s been some bad blood between Fort Collins’ Girls Gone Derby and Greeley’s Slaughterhouse Derby Girls, but despite their bitter history, Northern Colorado’s two roller derby leagues can agree on one thing – playing a tough but sportswoman-like competition for their fans. This grudge match is not to be missed.
FoCo Girls Gone Derby is certified by roller derby’s official national governing board, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (W.F.T.D.A.). The league donates a portion of the proceeds from each bout to a worthy cause. Habitat for Humanity will benefit from the July 19 bout. As part of FCGGD’s contribution, a “Derby Girl for a Day” prize package was auctioned off at the annual Hard Hat, Black Tie Gala for Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity on June 6. Winner Jenny Florez and her friend Shannon Hein will be honorary derby girls for a day and will participate behind the scenes at this bout. They will be photographed with the skaters, receive autographed merchandise and hang with the team on the bench and at the afterparty.
Tickets for all ages are $10 in advance and $15 the day of the bout. They can be purchased at the Budweiser Events Center box office and www.BrownPaperTickets.com.
