A Saturday bout?! YOU HEARD RIGHT, FOLKS! The claws come out on Saturday, March 13, as GRR takes on the Tallahassee Rollergirls’ Jailbreak Betties, on a mission to recover from their loss to GRR at the end of the 2009 season.
Alachua Co. Fairgrounds’ (2900 NE 39th Ave.) doors open at 6:45 and the bout begins at 7:30. The venue does not have seating, so bring your own chair or picnic blanket; track-side (aka rink floor) seating available for 18-and-up.
UPDATE: NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED WITHIN THE BUILDING. Concessions will be available. (Note: Bring cash for concessions and cool GRR merchandise like tees, tanks, totes and more!)
TICKETS ON SALE NOW! Admission: $8 in advance (ages 13-and-up) at BrownPaperTickets.com or Sweet Dreams Ice Cream (3437 W. University Ave.); $10 day-of at the door; 12-and-under in free.
As part of GRR’s pledge to give back to the community, in conjunction with this bout GRR is hosting the LIFESOUTH Bloodmobile, which will open at 6:30 p.m. to make sure no donor has to miss a minute of the action. BONUS: The first 10 on-site blood donors get into the bout free!
