SPORTS: Roc City Roller Derby


Experience the sweat, buzz, and tears of roller derby this weekend as Roc City Roller Derby presents "Octoberfist" Saturday, October 13, with doors opening at 5 p.m., and the derby commencing at 6 p.m. Competitors in the Home Teams Round Robin will include the 5-H8-5s, the Midtown Maulers, and the Rottenchesters. Depending on how adventurous you're feeling (or how old you are), tickets range from $5 for kids, to $20 for "Suicide Seats" in the middle of the track. The Generations will provide live music for the evening, and proceeds will benefit Cancer Wellness Connections. Be sure to bring donations of sample-sized toiletries for a chance to win some derby merchandise. To see these "tough girls who run in tight circles" in action, pay a visit to the Dome Arena at 2695 E. Henrietta Road this Saturday. For more information, visit or e-mail
