The Border City Brawlers are holding their second free skate at the historic Windsor Armouries on Saturday June 19, 2011. The Brawlers first free skate was held March 18, 2011 and because it was such a success, they are doing it again! The first event saw a turnout of roughly 150 people, many of whom expressed an interest in seeing roller derby in Windsor.
The Border City Brawlers are Windsor’s first women’s flat track roller derby league and are relatively new to the city. The league which is 40 members strong, is made up of ladies from across the county and from various walks of life.
The Brawlers have been gaining attention for not only bringing the sport to the area, but also for holding well-attended community events, raising awareness of the league and introducing families to the sport of roller derby and re-introducing families to roller skating. The Brawlers recently recruited many new members and are looking forward to a tournament in July.
The fun starts at 11:00 am and runs until 3:00 pm. Inline skates are welcome, (there is limited availability of rental skates) and helmets are strongly recommended for those participating. Free refreshments will be provided as well as hot dogs and baked goods. In addition you can meet the members of the Border City Brawlers and see them scrimmage at 2:45 pm so those who are interested can discover what this exciting sport is all about.
