Tonight, tonight! Derby season starts tonight!!!

So what do you need to know?

Bout 1: Cleveland Steamers vs. Hellbombers
Bout 2: Hard Knockers vs. Rolling Pin-Ups

Tickets can be purchased in person at the Wolstein Center box office when you arrive. SEASON PASSES ARE STILL AVAILABLE TODAY!

Season passes get you into seven bouts for $63. That’s THREE bouts for free compared to regular at-door admission fees. So if you’re buying your ticket today at the box office, a season pass is seriously the best deal.

Doors open at 5 p.m. / Bouts begin at 6 p.m.
Wolstein Center – Cleveland State University
2000 Prospect Ave.
Cleveland, Ohio

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
VIP season ticket (seven bouts): $78.75 – This is 25% off – $11.25 per bout.

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.

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.

AFTER PARTY: There will be an after party event at the Rockstar Lounge (above Peabody’s concert club). Bring your ticket stub and come join the skaters as they celebrate! BONUS: It’s within walking distance of the Wolstein Center!

See you tonight!

As many of you know, Soza Fitness and Wellness has been a longtime sponsor, supporter and friend of the Burning River Roller Girls. And now the favorite workout locale is stepping up to support our league in a new and exciting way.

Over the next few weeks, Soza will be sponsoring several promotions in connection with Black & Blue 6 to help us raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northeast Ohio. Soza’s goal is $1,000. Help us make it happen and win great prizes along the way!

Weekly prizes from Soza as part of the donation face-off event.

1. Donation face-off
First of all, now through Nov. 18, Soza will be hosting a donation face-off. Ballot/donation boxes will be set up with coordinating BRRG home teams. Enter your ballot (necessary to win) and loose change (unnecessary to win, but appreciated by our charity).

The box with the most donations wins. All ballots that chose the winning team will be entered into a drawing for prizes! Visit Soza for more details and start playing!

2. Halloween party
Still looking for a Halloween party this weekend? Stop by Soza Oct. 29 between 7-10 p.m. for a special 50s and 60s themed Rock Around the Clock Halloween party! Poodle skirts and leather jackets welcomed, but not required.

A $10 ticket provides you with food, beverages, music, prizes and the company of some of the Burning River Roller Girls. Nothing scary about that! Everyone is welcome. No gym membership necessary!

Bonus: Proceeds go to support BRRG’s Black & Blue 6 benefit, so a portion of this ticket cost is tax deductible. Your receipt will serve as your ticket or you may pick up your ticket at the gym with your receipt prior to the event.

3. Get in shape
Besides cheering for your favorite team in the face-off and hanging out with your favorite skaters at the Halloween bash, you can exercise like your favorite skaters at Soza.

Get a head start in battling the holiday weight gain by signing up for a membership at Soza between now and Oct. 31.

Along with its partners, Soza said it will donate $17  to our cause for every three-month Soza VIP Plan purchased during that time period, plus you get the fourth month free.

BRRG Thanks our Sponsor: Soza Fitness and Wellness

Posted: March 2, 2011 by burningriverrollergirls in sponsors

BRRG would like to send a special shout out to our presenting sponsor, Soza Fitness and Wellness.  Many of the skaters and refs have been getting their Zumba on and hitting the other classes to work on core and upper body in preparation for season 5.

Soza Fitness is oriented towards group fitness classes emphasizing functional training and full-body integration for folks of all walks of life.  If you’re looking for a gym with equipment and a “do your own thing” mentality, look elsewhere.  Soza is the full gym experience!

You might be wondering: What’s Zumba?  It’s dance moves set to Latin music burning upwards of 500 calories for the hour without even knowing it.  They’ve even got ZumbAtomic for kids!  They also offer TRX, (suspension training utilizing the core to stabilize your body as you work other body parts) Kettle to the Metal, and P90X classes!

Come train like the derby athletes do! Check out their class listings, and print a free pass today!
