On Saturday, February 1, 2014, join other UChicago alumni to watch the DC Roller Girls play a double-header at Stadium Armory: Scare Force One vs. Cherry Blossom Bombshells & Majority Whips vs. DC Demon Cats. Sophia Yan (AB' 12) is the captain of the DC Demon Cats and will be playing during the second bout. However, she will join the UChicago alumni at the start of the first bout to answer any questions and provide a short explanation of the rules! In addition, a DC Roller Girl will be available to "Talk Derby to Me" and to answer other questions about the bouts.

The first game starts at 4 pm and the second bout begins at 5:30 pm. Doors open at 3 pm and there are often lines - as such it is recommended people plan to arrive 15-20 minutes early. Parking is available in Lot 3 across the street for $15. The Stadium Armory metro is half a block away. Tickets will be available at Will Call. All DC Rollergirls bouts have food, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, skater-made crafts, and offerings from local vendors for sale.

During the bouts, a section of seats will be cordoned off for UChicago alumni and friends to mix and mingle.

The DC Roller Girls is a volunteer non-for profit. The women who make up the league come from all walks of life– they are engineers, architects, lawyers, teachers, nurses, writers, artists, librarians and work-at-home moms. They came to this sport as novice and experienced skaters, as seasoned athletes and as former couch potatoes. But they all have one thing in common– they are strong, fierce competitive athletes who are passionate about the sport of roller derby.

Please let me know if you have any questions or click here to learn more about DC Roller Girls.
