While the Hammer City Roller Girls have been practicing at the Caledonia Fairgrounds in Caledonia, Ontario for several winters now, we have never hosted a public roller derby bout there. Well, that’s about to change.
Our chartered Eh! Team will take to the flat track against Kalamazoo, Michigan’s Killamazoo Derby Darlins in a full-length WFTDA sanctioned bout at 11:00 am on February 3. The two teams last met in Hamilton in 2011, with KDD narrowly skating away with the win.
Doors open at 10:00 am. Please note that this is one of HCRG’s small-production events, as the focus will be on bringing the game to new fans, in a new venue. But the great news is that admission is only $5, payable at the door.
Temperatures will fluctuate, so fans are advised to dress warmly and bring a blanket. Complimentary hot beverages will be available.
Big production bouts offering the full HCRG experience with a DJ, concession, vendors, and licensed bar area will resume on May 11 with a double header in Hamilton. Our full home season schedule will be released soon!
The Caledonia Fairgrounds are located at 151 Caithness St. East, in Caledonia, ON.
