Drum roll please… Announcing Season 7!

brrglogo_whiteIt’s a New Year and you know what that means — another season of hard-hitting roller derby action from the Burning River Roller Girls! While you’ve been eagerly anticipating Season 7, we’ve been hard at work training our new recruits, scrimmaging and getting ready to bring it all for our fans.

While you’ll see many of your favorite skaters returning and the same action-packed game you know and love, 2013 brings a few changes. A revamping of the WFTDA rules includes one-whistle starts for both jammers and blockers and the elimination of minor penalties. Stay tuned for an upcoming post on what this means for the fans.

Equally exciting is our new home — Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma. If you attended Black and Blue 7 in December for our inaugural bout at Ohio Nets, you’ll know it’s a great venue with seating close to the action and plentiful parking. And if you didn’t, what were you thinking?! We’ll forgive you — catch up on what you missed here

Bout dates:   February 16, March 16, April 20, May 11, June 1, June 22, July 20  Bonus!  Hangover Bout:   May 12 against Forty Wayne

Hey we’re looking for help from a few good roller derby/Cavs fans.
Friday, Jan. 25 is Burning River Roller Girls night at the Q. But right now we are a few tickets shy of meeting our required goal to host this event.
If we sell the allotted amount of tickets, our skaters will be able to set up a table, skate in the concourse, and get special mentions on the Jumbotron and announcements. This is a huge opportunity to promote roller derby to the awesome sports fans of Cleveland.
If you buy a ticket through our league via the link below (NOT on the Cavs site), you will get special seating near a bunch of skaters from BRRG and help us be eligible for this event. Even if you can’t or don’t want to go, please consider buying a ticket as a donation to our league to help us take advantage of this great opportunity.
