Our first home bout against the Charlottesville Derby Dames is only a few days away!
We are nearly maxed out at our 400 pre-sale tickets! AMAZING! The Dames will be bringing folks with them as well, we are going to pack Funky's Skate center! Bring a folding chair, be ready to shout and get ready to see some great Roller Derby Action!
This being our first home bout has been a major production. I can not say enough, to you all reading, how much we that Funky's, the Stauton Speed Skating Club, our sponsors, friends and all the voluneeters helping us put this together.
Thank you all!
And this is just the start! Roller Derby is growing like wild fire across the nation, and is a solid grassroots sport. We hope to bring more excitment and community networking to the 'burg with roller derby!
It has been a bust month, and I have not posted as often as I should be. But, in May we are taking a breather (so to speak) and will be working on everything from admin paper work to skating, skating and more skating.

That is right H'burg, spring is here and it is time for a roller derby bout!
You local RockTown Rollers have been training hard since their first bout against the Jaded Misfits in Bluefield WV.
We have had a few new "freshmeats" join the team since then, and we are training them as fast as we can to get them derby ready! Ladies, interested in joining, we welcome ladies of all types and experience to come try out for the RockTown Rollers. Talk with one of your local derby girls about the training they do. If you want a copy of our freshmeat guide, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are very excited about skating against the Charlottesville Derby Dames! They are a great group of ladies!
We are now selling pre-sale Tickets for $5!
It is cheaper and more exciting to watch Roller Derby then going to the movies!
Also, ask your derby girl about a season pass! They sell for $10 and will get you into all three up coming home bouts!
April 26th: RockTown Rollers vs Charlottesville Derby Dames
June 20th: RockTown Rollers vs New River Valley Roller Girls
August 22th: RockTown Rollers vs Green Valley Jaded Misfits
