How the Killjoys smashed Christmas

There’s a lot to celebrate as the Nelson Killjoys are hosting the last scrimmage in the 24/7 Skate Venue. Saturday, November 30 at 2:30 p.m

The time has come for festive cheer and whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or Solstice we can all celebrate girls hitting each other on roller skates.

‘Tis the season.

There’s actually a lot to celebrate as the Nelson Killjoys are hosting what will be the last scrimmage in the 24/7 Skate Venue. Saturday, November 30 at 2:30 p.m. is your last chance to experience the grass roots, made for the skaters by the skaters, very chilly but warmed by the love of derby, venue located in the old Extra Foods store.

This is also a chance to donate to organizations in Nelson that are making sure everyone has a happy holiday season. There are so many ways to donate! Bring a food item for The Nelson Food Cupboard, gently used jackets for Coats for the Koots, a donation for the Kootenay Animal Assistance Program (KAAP) or do all of those things and win at spreading holiday cheer and get a discount.

For every food item donated you get a $1 discount for up to $5. Tickets are only $10 so that is half off.

Other good news? The Killjoys will be splitting any funds raised with those local charities.

There will also be a beer garden, derby, and a Killjoys bake sale. These girls don’t just skate — they also bake pies.

Since it’s the season of giving there will be a special present opening contest. These presents hold gift certificates, coupons, and all matter of delightful swag. Some of them even have big-ticket items like Whitewater Ski passes.

Be there to see the Killjoys (undefeated champions this season) take on fierce competitors from throughout the West Kootenay Roller Derby league. For this event, The Killjoys will be Elves in green and their opponents will be Santas in red. Santa’s workshop has never been so badass. Celebrate the holidays roller derby style.
