NWA Roller Derby hosts Mo-Kan Roller Girls Saturday

Two weeks ago, NWA Roller Derby kicked off its 2010 season in a brand new home at the Starlight Skatium on College Ave. in Fayetteville. The bout was completely sold out, but if you were lucky enough to get tickets, you saw the Arkansas Killbillies lose a hard fought match to the Memphis Hustlin’ Rollers 170-126.

If you weren’t able to get tickets to the sold out match, don’t freak out. There’s another chance to see some roller derby action this Saturday, when NWA’s second home team, the Backwoods Betties take on the Mo-Kan Roller Girlz (that’s short for Missouri/Kansas). Doors open at 6 p.m. and derby action begins at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the bout can be purchased at Starlight Skatium during normal business hours, or from nwarollerderby.com.. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door, and kids 12 and under get in free with paid adult admission.

The roller girls have also secured a temporary permit to serve beer at the bout on Saturday. It will be sold by the cup on a cash-only basis.

Go Betties.
