From our press release...
Hellions of Troy will start their 2013 season off with a bang against Vermont’s Green Mountain Derby Dames’ Grade A Fancies. The Hellions of Troy became a Full Member League of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) in December of last year and are looking forward to their first season as a ranked league.
“We have been working towards a WFTDA ranking since I joined the league over two years ago. To finally be skating in our first ranked, sanctioned bout is exciting, to say the least!” said skater Roshi Shivalila, a.k.a. Baby Nuclear.
This particular bout holds added significance to the Hellions, as they have skated against the Green Mountain Derby Dames five times over the past five years, their first matchup taking place at the Fun Spot in Lake George, NY in 2008. Skater and league manager Marcie Pry, a.k.a. Short Temper noted “The Dames have supported us since our league was founded, so it feels even more special to face-off against them in our first WFTDA sanctioned bout.”
The bout will take place at Rollarama Skating Center in Schenectedy, NY on Saturday, March 2nd. Doors will open at 7 p.m., with the first whistle starting the bout at 8 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs as seating is limited. An after party at Clinton’s Ditch, located 112 South College Street in Schenectedy, will immediately follow the bout.
Tickets for the bout are $10 in advance, $12 at the door, and $3 for kids under 12. The Hellions also offer reduced rates for groups over 10 and a $35 season pass (a $48 value) for those interested in attending all four home bouts this season.
