Do you like Star Trek? Comic books? Lord of the Rings? The Doctor? Do you LARP? Well what ever tickles your fancy, you'll find it this weekend ! You can come and see the Grand Raggidy Roller Girls at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con this Friday(4-9pm) Saturday(10-7pm) and Sunday(10-6pm). This is your chance to geek it out with some of GRRG's talented ladies. If we're lucky, maybe some of these 8 wheeled gals will don their favorite cosplay!
This is the second year Grand Rapids has hosted its very own comic-con and we get to be a part of it. The event will be held at the Delta Plex this year to accommodate for the 30,000 estimated attendees.
Come to our booth and enter the drawing for your chance to win tickets to the Seventh Annual Beer Brawl as well as another opportunity to view last years Art Prize entry and be the art! (Hint* you get to stick your head through an opening that magically turns you into a roller girl!) Not to mention some killer GRRG SWAG!!
So bust out those capes, tights and super human powers and come on out. Enter the drawing. Get a new Grand Raggidy Roller Girls shirt. Take some pictures. We can't wait to see some familiar faces amongst all the new friends we hope to make! We want to hang out and enjoy this exciting weekend with all of you.
Are you a vet? Do you know a vet? November 11th, is Veteran’s Day. In recognition of this day, The Grand Raggidy Roller Girls are honoring our service men and women at our next game Saturday, November 15th. Teams will be competing in a double header against the Lansing Derby Vixens. Veterans and service personnel tickets will be discounted!
We last saw Grand Raggidy tussle with the Vixens in May, 2013. The GRRG All Stars sent the Vixens back to Lansing with their fox tails between their legs. The evening’s smack down ended with GRRG’s 85 point lead!
With a WFTDA ranking of #54 for GRRG and the Vixens at #117 our All Stars currently sit in favor of a win. Back in June, the Vixens traveled to Latonia, Kentucky to defend their rankings against the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls. The Vixens skated the night away with a final win of 273 to 122.
Will rankings again rule the track on bout night? Don’t miss this opportunity to see two great teams hash it out on Saturday, November 15th. See you in Grandville!
Doors open at 5pm action starts at 6pm sharp! Tickets are $15 at the door. Advance discount tickets can be purchased for only $12 ($10 for seniors & students, $8 for kids) at Bartertown Diner or from your favorite derby girl! As always, the Bomb Squad will have some great entertainment lined up for our dear fans! So gather up your crew and come join ours for the night. We are all Grand Raggidy family!
