What’s Up Next for the Rollers

May 28, 2013

The Blackwater Rollers have a busy summer ahead of us. Coming up June 15th, the Rollers will be taking on the Star City Rollers at the Icimani Adventure Center in Roanoke. This is Star City’s last home bout of the season and we couldn’t be more excited to strut our stuff. We’ve been in the rink working hard and breaking a sweat. The proceeds go to support tornado relief in Oklahoma, so come make the short drive to see some great derby and support a great cause.

Can’t make the drive to Roanoke? Click the link to give a donation. Anything helps! Star City Rollers will also be donating a dollar for every like they get on their Facebook. So come on, exercise those pointer fingers and click the “like” button. While you’re at it, don’t forget to hop over to the Blackwater Facebook page and click the “like” button to support your favorite Lynchburg derby team.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Rollers will also have a bout on June 23rd against the NRV Bruisin’ Burgs. After a tough loss to NRV earlier this year, we’re hungry for revenge. We’ll be traveling to their home rink in Christiansburg to avenge ourselves and win the Battle of the Burgs.

Heading into July,  Blackwater will be hosting the Greenbrier Roller Vixens straight out of the “Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia on the 20th. This one will be a sight to see, folks. This is the only home bout of the Summer, so take a seat in the air conditioning at  AJ’s Skateworld, grab an ice cold drink, and watch someone else work up a sweat for once. Be sure to watch for additional details closer to the time of the bout.

Oh yeah, and remember that rematch we mentioned before? Well Blackwater will most likely be taking on the Blue Stone Rollers in a co-ed rematch on August 11th. Be sure you don’t miss the Blackwater men in their second bout of the season. Watch out Blue Stone, we’re comin’ for you!

If co-ed derby action just isn’t enough for you, we’ll be taking part in a double header in Roanoke on August 24th. Star City will be hosting both Blackwater and NRV in a double-header doozy. Star City will open against Blackwater followed by NRV. It’s going to be an all out battle for the Central Virginia derby crown, and we couldn’t be more excited to try and steal it.

Don’t forget that Blackwater is still recruiting. We’ll be at Aj’s Skateworld in Appomattox every Tuesday and Thursday 6:15 – 8:30. No equipment or skills necessary and the first practice is free. We hope to see you there!
