Those of you who’ve driven down College Avenue over the last few months may have noticed that there’s been a lot of progress made on the Starlight Skatium, the future home of the NWA Rollergirls in the old Curry’s building.
It’s a good thing, because The Arkansas Killbillies and the Backwoods Betties will be kicking off their third season of roller derby action in January, and season tickets are now on sale over at nwarollergirls.com.
Season passes are $50, and ticket holders will receive tickets to all 7 home bouts this year, beginning on Jan. 23 when the Killbillies take on the Memphis Rollergirls.
In addition, season ticket holders will also receive:
- 10% discount off all NWA Roller Derby merchandise
- A signed league photo
- VIP section seating
- Get in early to bouts. No waiting in line
- A VIP button
In just their second season of competition, the Arkansas Killbillies were a nationally ranked team last year, and word on the street is that they’re gonna be pretty freakin’ awesome again this year.
Those of you who’ve been to a bout know that Roller Derby nights are always an awesome time. In addition to being a seriously competitive, hard-hitting, full contact sport, bouts are usually accompanied by live music, and the beer flows like…beer.
If you still need convincing that Roller Derby is awesome, here’s a video to get you in the Roller Derby Spirit.
