It’s that time of year again!!! The GTA Rollergirls wants to invite you to come and watch this year’s Fresh Meat rollergirls get their (derby) cherries popped at 2Fresh 2Furious. Always a smash hit, this year we’ve opened our doors to even more teams and we’ll be hosting 16 teams in a round robin full day tournament.
The tournament will be held on July 9, 2011 at Ted Reeve Arena and the Ted Reeve Bubble. These two venues are side by side and you can hop from one to the other to follow your favorite teams. The first games will start at 11 AM and we’ll keep going until we get to name a fresh meat team winner.
Food, snacks and beer will only be available in the arena!!!! So if you like a cold frosty Mill St beer with your cherry poppin derby gals, then you’ll want to settle down in the beer garden of the arena.
Planning to watch the games in the bubble? Be ready to sit in the suicide seating! Bring your camp chairs, booty cushions or blankets to sit on because there aren’t bleachers there. Want the best experience in the arena? Bring your cushions and sit suicide seating. Because you don’t want to be stuck in the bleachers.
We have also invited Neon Skates (an official sponsor of the GTA Rollergirls) and Roller bug (Cardinal Skate Co.) so if you have secret dreams of derby, you can check out some starter skates and fresh meat packages! And for all you veteran skaters (or freezer meat, as we say in the igloo), you can get those new knee pads/gaskets/wristguards that you “need”.
Visiting leagues will also be selling their merch, so be ready to buy awesome tees, stickers buttons and patches to show your support!!
