6/11/11 handbill'Roll' Reversal


FoCo Girls Gone Derby skaters will have the opportunity to knock down the ones who usually call their penalties, and derby referees will see what it's like to skate between the lines in FoCo's first-ever refs and skaters mix-it-up bout Saturday, June 11, at Rollerland. Doors open at 7 p.m., bout begins at 7:30. 


Refs will take to the track instead of laying down the law. Skaters will be forced to skate both with and against the sport's authority figures. However, just because some brave refs have turned players for this bout doesn't mean the rules have been tossed out. This bout will be officiated the same as any other. But with the "zebras" (as derby refs are called) in on the action, it will be entertaining to see which group commits the most penalties - the skaters or the refs!


A portion of the proceeds from this bout will go to WomenGive, a partnership between United Way of Larimer County and the Women's Foundation of Colorado that seeks to empower women and girls and help women in Larimer County achieve economic self-sufficiency.

Tickets are $10 presale and $15 at the door. Students and members of the military receive a reduced rate of $10 with valid ID. Children 12 and under are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased through the Rollerland Skate Center ticket booth or from any FoCo skater.
