The Roller Derby community always enjoys a chance to add celebration to events, and Hallowe’en is a perennially popular time to indulge in a little theming of bouts.
As such, it’s no surprise that Glasgow Roller Derby are continuing their tradition of a Hallowe’en bout with a fancy-dress competition as part of their Saturday double-header. The sporting component will also be exciting, with Tampere Roller Derby travelling across from Finland to face Glasgow’s Maiden Grrders, and Lothian Derby Dolls taking on New Town Roller Girls in the opener.
The event starts at 12:30pm Saturday, at the ARC Sports Centre, Glasgow Caledonian University. The eventbrite tickets page is: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/glasgow-roller-derby-maiden-grrders-vs-tampere-roller-derby-ldd-vs-ntrg-registration-19060101276

Meanwhile, up in Dundee, Dundee Roller Girls‘ Home Season continues, with the Jammin’ Dodgers playing the Press Gangsters. Excitingly, the event will be a double-header, with Scotland’s National Men’s Derby team, Power of Scotland, engaging in a selection bout between the 30 training team members for the current squad. Not only will this bout feature the best of Scottish Men’s Derby, but it will also feed into the final 20 Power of Scotland members to make up the National Squad going into the next Men’s Roller Derby World Cup in Calgary 2016.
