Happy Holidays!

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

The Hammer City Roller Girls with you health and happiness during the holidays! We’ve worked hard this year, and can’t wait to sit back and celebrate 2012 rolling in.

For the 5th year in a row, we adopted a family for the St. Matthew’s House Adopt-a-Family program. We would like to thank all of those who supported our Craft and Bake Sale at the December 9th Artcrawl on James St N. We were able to give our family the greatest holiday gift of all… Love! (and lots of it!)

Some of our skaters helped spread holiday cheer at the Kitestring Christmas Spectacular on December 16th. The very successful charitable event raised money for the Hamilton not-for-profit Culture for Kids in the Arts. Were you lucky enough to see your favourite skaters sing their smash hit “Derby Girls are Comming to Town?”

We bake and we skate. We whip and we stitch. We give hits and we give back. And we thank you for all your generousity in helping us spread derby love this season.

Have a safe and happy holiday! See you on the track in the new year!

HCRG at the Christmas Spectacular!

Friday, December 16th, 2011

The Hammer City Roller Girls will be rolling into Kitestring’s 3rd Annual Christmas Spectacular on December 16, 2011. The proceeds from the evening will be given to the Hamilton not-for-profit called Culture for Kids in the Arts. An organization that is dedicated to making arts programming available to all local children.

Your Hammer City Roller Girls will take centre stage at the *SOLD OUT pageant! Our skaters have multiple talents – watch us sing, dance, and skate at the Spectacular. We’ll be there for Hamilton’s biggest candy buffet ever at the 7:00pm kickoff, at the Hamilton Consvatory for the Arts (126 James St S). Our friends at Gorrilla Cheese will be serving up snacks and prizes at 9:00pm.

The after-party starts at 9:30pm. Tickets are $5 at the door, featuring Sweet Ice Snow Cones and $5 drink specials all night. Live rockabilly music by The Greasemarks. Bring your dancing shoes!
