After skating hard in Tenerife in September, Granite City Roller Girls are back with a bout in October, hosting to Lothian Derby Dolls in a Halloween weekend bout.
This will be Lothian’s third bout to date, and Granite City’s third home bout of the year after securing a venue at the Beach Leisure Centre. This will be a new experience for both teams, as they have never played each other before.
The bout takes place on Saturday, 26th of October. Dressing up by spectators is not required but hugely encouraged. There will be a cake stall with themed snacks (no tricks or treats needed, but again, highly encouraged) as well a raffle with all proceeds going to local charities. Merchandise stalls will be in the hall as well as a donation bucket, with any money raised going back into the team to make future bouts a reality.
People of all ages are invited to the bout, which is free of charge (get there early to avoid disappointment – doors open at 2pm with the bout starting at 3pm). All we ask is anyone under 18 sits away from the suicide line to avoid injury.
While normally you wonder who will win the after party, a more appropriate question for this bout may be who will have the best costume? Come along and find out.
