The Lowcountry Highrollers are back!
Our exciting 2012 season kicks off with MILITIA OF LOVE, featuring the LCHR All-Stars and Bruisin’ Betties in a rematch against the Charlotte Roller Girls All-Stars and B Dazzlers! Doors open at 4:00PM, and the first whistle blows at 4:30PM as the Bruisin’ Betties take on the B Dazzlers. The Betties were edged out by the B Dazz in both meetings last year, and they are out for a little payback! The LCHR All-Stars will go skate to skate with the Charlotte All-Stars at 6:00PM. Both leagues earned their acceptance into the WFTDA East Region last season, so the stakes are even higher in this bout as the outcome will count towards the teams’ rankings.
Highroller bouts are always family friendly, with kids’ activities and the favorite “push a roller girl” at halftime. For the “big kids,” beer and wine are available, plus all the hard-hitting derby action you can handle! Halftime entertainment will be provided by the lovely ladies of Homespun Hoops.
Our featured charity for this bout is We Are Family, a local organization who provides direct support and resources that have a lasting and measurable impact for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex (GLBTQQI) and straight ally youth ages 16-23 in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester Counties. Check out our great raffle prizes, and help out this great cause!
The party keeps going after the final whistle blows, so follow us to our afterparty at the Tin Roof in West Ashley!
