Alice in Rollerland bout June 4
GALLATIN ROLLER GIRLZ
The Gallatin Roller Girlz gaze into the looking glass to face off against themselves for a topsy-turvy intra-league bout called Alice in Rollerland.
On Saturday, June 4 the Gallatin Roller Girlz teams Mountain Mayhem and Bozeman Brawlers become the Mad Hatters and the Jabberwockies at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds’ Haynes Pavilion. This will be the first bout for many of the recent Fresh Meat Boot Camp graduates, so come out and cheer them on with all the zeal and bloodlust of the Queen of Hearts.
Tweedledum and Tweedledee join Alice, the March Hare, Cheshire Cat, and White Rabbit for this Alice in Wonderland-themed event. Costumed attendees are encouraged and those aged 18-plus get first crack at limited trackside seating—aka Suicide or Nose Bleed seats. Everyone in costume will receive a coupon for free ice cream.
This family friendly event features a dynamic halftime show with local artists Fire in the Attic, food by Bubby’s, a no-host bar by Bar IX, raffles, games and prizes. Music will be provided by DJ Chachi.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. bout with an after party to follow at Bar IX. A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit Big Sky Youth Empowerment, providing opportunities to teenagers in order to foster self-reliance, critical thinking skills, and community participation throughout Gallatin County.
Tickets for Alice in Rollerland can be purchased at Cactus Records and Gifts and at grgderby.com. Kids 10 and under are free.
