Posted: May 5, 2012 by burningriverrollergirls in BRRG News, General, home teams, The Burning River All-Stars, WFTDA rankings

Here’s everything you need to know for this weekend’s bouts!

MAY 5

Preshow Bout: Pyromaniacs vs. Sandusky Roller Girls
Bout 1: Hard Knockers vs. Hellbombers
Bout 2: Cleveland Steamers vs. Rolling Pin-Ups

Tickets can still be purchased in person at the Wolstein Center box office when you arrive.

Doors open at 5 p.m. / Preshow bout, 5:15 p.m. / Home teams, 6 p.m.
Wolstein Center – Cleveland State University
2000 Prospect Ave.
Cleveland, Ohio

Tickets:
General admission
Adult day-of: $17
Kids (12 and younger): $6
Special group (Student, Military, etc.): $10

VIP admission
Adult day-of: $20
VIP special group (Student, Military, etc.): $12

What does VIP mean? VIP gets you access to the sectioned off area on the floor with tables and chairs (see the action up-close without sitting on the floor)! It also gives you access to a private cash bar, so you never have to leave the action for refreshments. You as always can also sit wherever you want in the Wolstein Center, but you always have special access to this section.

What’s with this preshow bout? The Sandusky Roller Girls will be matched up with BRRG’s Pyromaniacs, our farm team from which our other teams draft. The teams will play one 30-minute period before the four home teams face off, so show up a little early to cheer on the rising stars of the BRRG!

Parking is available in several parking areas and on streets near the Wolstein Center. The easiest access is a parking deck right next door. In the past, parking has cost about $6, but we have no control over this area, so there’s no guarantee that will be the price today. Just make sure you have cash on hand. In the past, the deck has closed at midnight. Make sure you check the times when you park.

Extras: Check out our new BRRG Kids Club and our memorial table for Luna Lovewound in the concourse. Also try your luck at today’s raffle, and look for our “Ask Me About Derby” representatives. Skaters will be walking around during the bouts with bright orange shirts. They are ready to answer any questions you might have about roller derby, from the basics to trickier strategic plays happening on the track.

Also, the Wolstein Center does serve alcohol, including fancier drinks at the bar concession areas, for those who are looking to kick off your Cinco de Mayo festivities.

AFTER PARTY: There will be an after party event at the Harbor Inn, 1219 Main Avenue, Cleveland. Bring your ticket stub and come join the skaters as they celebrate!
