Roller Derby: WRD vs. Canada Saturday



This Saturday, April 10, Salt Lake City's Wasatch Roller Derby takes on Canada's Calgary Roller Derby Association at the Taylorsville Rec Center in scenic downtown Taylorsville. ---From the WRD:

"Wasatch Roller Derby (WRD) proudly presents their own Midnight Terror travel team versus Hellion Rebellion of the Calgary Roller Derby Association. Yes, fans we are talking about Calgary, Canada! This exciting international game will take place Saturday, April 10, 4:30 pm at the Taylorsville Recreation Center (4948 S. 2700 West). Fans just can’t seem to get enough Roller Derby, and WRD answers the call with some international action! Come spend the afternoon cheering on your favorite ladies from WRD!"

Details to note here: It's an afternoon game, 4:30 instead of the usual 6 or 7 pm starting time; seating at at the Taylorsville Rec Center is very limited, so arrive early (tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door, kids 5-under free); being a rec center, there's no beer (roller derby fans always ask).
