It is with true patriot love and spirit that Hammer City invites you to the Maple Stir-Up Invitational roller derby tournament, happening tomorrow!
It’s the first-ever roller derby tournament to feature an all-Canadian roster of Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) teams (Calgary Roller Derby Association, the Forest City Derby Girls, the Rideau Valley Roller Girls, Tri-City Roller Derby, and us!).
