Caledonia, Here We Come!

Friday, January 11th, 2013

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!

RSVP on Facebook.

The Caledonia Fairgrounds are located at 151 Caithness St. East, in Caledonia, ON.
