Summer Shovin’ to feature Port City Roller Derby, June 21

OSWEGO — Port City Roller Derby will keep 2014 rolling with its Summer Shovin’ bout on Saturday in Crisafulli Rink.

For the flashback bout featuring PCRD skaters, the Breakwall Bombshells will take on the Albany All Stars from Albany. A rematch of two super powers will reunite for an old fashion rumble on the flat track.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. with action beginning at 6 p.m. at Crisafulli Rink, corner of East Ninth and VanBuren streets.

It is the next event of their first full competitive season as a Women’s Flat Track Derby Association apprentice league, a prelude to their next away bout against the Black River Rollers from Watertown.

Advance tickets, available from league members at $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 12, with children 4 and under admitted free.

Tickets can be purchased at the door but will cost $12 for adults.

Attendees interested in trackside seating are encouraged to bring their own chairs.

A portion of proceeds of the June bout will support Oswego’s Human Concerns Center.

Port City Roller Derby is produced by Oz Roller Girls Inc., a member-run non-profit organization dedicated to athletic competition, empowerment and supporting its community.

PCRD always seeks skaters, refs and other volunteers for its adult (18 and over) and juniors (ages 10 to 17) teams, and will provide training.
