GALLATIN ROLLER GIRLZ

BOZEMAN – Join the Gallatin Roller Girlz for the adventure of the summer as they kick off the 2016 home season with Jurassic Block on Saturday, May 14 at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds’ Haynes Pavilion. GRG’s Mountain Mayhem team faces off against the Portneuf Valley Bruisers of Pocatello, Idaho.

Paleontologist, archaeologist and dinosaur costumes are encouraged for the event. Costumed attendees aged 18 and older get first crack at limited trackside seating – aka suicide or nose bleed seats – and all attendees wearing Jurassic-themed attire will receive a coupon for free ice cream.

This family friendly event features food by Bubby’s, a no-host bar from Bar IX, raffles, games and prizes. DJ Chachi will supply the tunes.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit The Community Cafe, a project of the Human Resources Development Council and Montana’s only pay-what-you-can cafe.

The nonprofit GRG achieved Women’s Flat Track Derby Association full member status in September 2015. This is a sanctioned WFTDA bout, and affects GRG rankings at national and international levels.

Tickets for Jurassic Block are available at the door or in advance at grgderby.com and Cactus Records. Kids 10 and under enter for free. Doors open at 7 p.m., the bout starts at 7:30 p.m., and there’s an after party to follow at Bar IX.
