So Much Roller Derby Happening in Salem Right Now!

Posted by Courtney Ferguson on Sat, Sep 28, 2013 at 11:44 AM


This might be obvious, but there's a lot of hustling going on in Salem this weekend. And not the normal kind, the delightful roller derby kind with a huge international tournament all weekend. It goes through Sunday at the Salem Fairgrounds with 10 of the top teams in the entire world (THE EARTH) knocking the shit out of each other. Sadly, oooooooooh so sadly, Portland's Rose City Rollers played in the playoffs in Fort Wayne, Indiana, a couple weeks ago and didn't manage to better the London Rollergirls. So no championship shot for us. Look how heartbreaking it was (in fact, go look at all of Skippy Steve's photos of the Portland vs. London game—they're excellent!). Ugh. But back to the more immediate point... this weekend... tons of roller derby with Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, Baltimore, Australia, Toronto, and so many more teams playing 17 games, all with the hopes of getting into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association championships in November in Milwaukee. Come on down, it's super fun. And tomorrow sees the huge battle for the all the marbles with the big game for first place at 6 pm. Girls! Roller skates! Smash!
