West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League is taking it to the track in the final bout of the regular season on July 8: Carnival of Carnage.

Roller Derby action returns to the Nelson and District Community Complex this coming Friday.

West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League is taking it to the track in the final bout of the regular season on July 8: Carnival of Carnage.

Half of the profits from this double-header are being donated to West Kootenay Habitat for Humanity. Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers take on Nelson’s Lumber Jackies, then Nelson’s Killjoys take it to the track against Salmo’s Babes of Brutality.

Come watch some intense eight-wheeled action and feel good about giving back to your community.

Roller derby has spread like wildfire in the West Kootenay with seven house teams and an all-star travel team, making the league the largest in Canada. West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League includes the Babes of Brutality, Rossland’s Gnarlie’s Angels, the Dam City Rollers, the Killjoys and Lumber Jackies, Slocan’s Valley Vandettas, and Trail’s Bloodshed Betties, and the region’s all-star travel team, the Kootenay Kannibelles. The Kannibelles made their first appearance at the Westerns last month in Kelowna and came home with a fifth place finish behind some of the best and most well-known teams in Western Canada.

Doors open at 6 p.m. at the Nelson and District Community Complex, with the first whistle at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door and $2 at the door for kids 10 and under (no advance kids tickets available). Tickets can be picked up in advance at West Kootenay Scuba Shop in Salmo and Phat Angel in Nelson or purchased online

Beer and coolers will be available at the complex.
