Victoria’s top roller derby players are headed to the mainland this weekend to take on teams from Washington State and Vancouver as part of the Derby Night in Canada event taking place in New Westminster, August 5th-6th..
The Eves of Destruction’s A-Team will start their weekend with a bout against Washington State’s Rat City Roller Girls, followed by a match versus Vancouver’s Terminal City Roller Girls on Saturday, and then finish the event Sunday against Everett’s Jet City.
A-Team skater C-3Ph0 says her team is looking forward to taking on some of the best derby players in the Pacific Northwest over the next couple of days.”We’ve been working hard this season and this tournament pits us against some great competition. It will be a tough weekend but we’re bringing our A game and are looking forward to the challenges!”
Following this weekend, the A-Team will have a short rest before they welcome Jet City’s Camaro Harem to Victoria for the August 12th bout at Archie Browning Arena.
The August 12th bout is an exhibition double -header — with the Eves developmental team, The Hard Cores, facing Duncan’s Brass Knuckle Derby Dames as the opening act. Admission is by donation.
Doors open at 5 pm and, as always, the bout will include a 50/50 raffle, cold beer & cider, and delicious local Empire Donuts.
