Roller Derby home opener set for Saturday

Gold Pain City Derby Girls are aobut to hit the track for the season opener April 5

The Gold Pain City Derby Girls are about to hit the track for the season home opener Mustache Madness  this Saturday, April 5 against the Rated PG Roller Girls!

We dedicate this bout to our new beer garden sponsors, the Barkerville Brewing Co.

And to add to the excitement, we have another announcement, the sponsorship of our after party by The Occidental!

The Gold Pain Girls had our first bout this season against Rated PG in February at the Roller Dome in Prince George. That bout ended in a loss for Gold Pain with a score of 188-134. However, much like any bout the Gold Pain Girls have lost, we know that it’s the ones you lose that you learn the most from! So with a laundry list of goals to focus on, the team has been preparing for the rest of the season. We’re excited to see how far along that list we’ve come! With a short roster, it ought to prove interesting!

So, come on out this Saturday night and support your local roller derby! Tickets available at Reason 2 Run, from any of our derby girls and at the door! Tickets are $10 each, ages 10 and under are free! Doors open 6 p.m., first whistle at 7 p.m.
