OSWEGO — Port City Roller Derby will keep 2014 rolling with their “War Of SK8teen 12” bout on August 9 in Crisafulli Rink.
For a battle bout featuring PCRD skaters, the Port City Sirens will take on the Kingston Derby Girls Skateful Dead team from Kingston Canada.
A war of two superpowers will fight an epic 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 Van Buren streets in Oswego.
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 Assault City Battery Brigade from Syracuse.
A portion of the proceeds for the August bout will go towards a new sound system at Crisafulli Ice Rink.
Advance tickets, available from league members, cost $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.
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.
