If you want a night off from hockey, why not head to Glenwood to check out a new sport...or a new to the Valley sport!

 The Alberni Valley Roller Girls are ready to introduce the sport of Roller Derby to the Alberni Valley.  The team has been training hard, and its’ skaters will be featured in the league’s first roller derby bout on Dec 10th . “Slay Belles 2011”, is holiday themed, and showcases exhibition teams “Violent Night” vs. “Deck the Dolls”. The teams are made up of the Alberni Valley Roller Girls, and feature seasoned guest skaters from all over the Mid Island, the Lower Mainland, and the Fraser Valley.

The AV Roller Girls have had a successful pre-season training schedule, having overcome injuries, illness and practice venue changes, to emerge as a team ready to kick some butt! This summer, AVRG held their first sponsorship drive, and have several corporate, business and individual sponsorships in place.  The women are excited to make their sponsors and community proud this season, and “Slay Belles” is their chance to show off all their hard work.  This family friendly, all ages event will be held at Glenwood Arena on Dec 10th

Doors open at 6:30, tickets are $10.00, $5.00 for children 12 and under . This rock’em sock’em fast paced show of athleticism features a beer garden, raffles, 50/50 draws, and limited track-side “suicide seating”. Whistle Blows at 7pm. 

So bring your family, friends and roll grandma on down to Glenwood on Dec 10th, and be ready to pick your favorite Alberni Valley Rollergirl to cheer on!
