Ice skates are for amateurs.
Four roller derby teams took over the Nelson and District Community Complex on Saturday for the Bloodbath and Beyond women’s tournament.
The Nelson Killjoys, Chilliwack’s NWO Roller Girls, the Thompson Okanagan All-Star Team and the Fernie’s Avalanche City Roller Girls took turns facing off in 30-minute matches at the free event, with donations raised for the Nelson SPCA, Kootenay Co-op Radio and the Nelson and District Women’s Centre.
Avalanche City finished first, ahead of NWO. Thompson Okanagan was third, followed by the Killjoys.
