GALLATIN ROLLER GIRLZ
The Gallatin Roller Girlz are rolling out the red carpet on Saturday, June 21 for Casablockya, the second home bout of the 2014 summer season. The Girlz will be hosting the Billings Roller Derby Dames at Bozeman’s Haynes Pavilion for this old Hollywood-themed roller derby bout.
This will be the first time BRDD has come to GRG’s turf. The Girlz have grown and improved since they last played BRDD in February 2013, and this time they plan to dominate the track.
This family-friendly event features food vendors, a no-host bar, halftime entertainment by Taiko Drummers, games and raffles. DJ Miss Illaneous will supply the music. A portion of proceeds from Casablockya will benefit HAVEN, a Bozeman-based nonprofit that provides assistance to victims of domestic abuse.
Priority Suicide Seating is available to costumed attendees ages 18 and over – think vintage glamour, Bogart and Bergman. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the bout starts at 7:30 p.m. An after party will follow at the Zebra Cocktail Lounge.
Pre-purchase discounted tickets for Casablockya at tart (in the Emerson), Cactus Records, from any roller girl or guy, or online at grgderby.com. Kids 12 and under are admitted free of charge.
The Gallatin Roller Girlz, a 501(c)(3) federal nonprofit, have been training hard and traveling the region, bouting leagues from Montana and surrounding states eleven months out of the year. GRG achieved Women’s Flat Track Derby Association apprenticeship designation this January and are currently working to achieve full WFTDA membership, allowing for ranking at the national and international level.
