CCDD’s First Double Header

CCDD’s been steadily expanding in the last three years, but this past year represents our most intense spike in membership of well…ever. For us. As such, we have not just one, but two new teams. The thing about teams is that they like to play so the rest of our events this season will be double headers.  So, double the fun.

So first of all, let me introduce you to the:

Dollinquents

and

Slaughter Squad

If you clicked on the links, you probably noticed that Slaughter Squad has a bunch of dudes on it. There’s a simple explanation for that: they’re dudes.  CCDD is helping these guys out until there are enough of them to be fully independent. Frankly, given what they do for us, it’s the least we can do. A lot of these guys coach, ref, volunteer at our games, or have lost a significant other to the sport and they’re coping by playing.

The Dollinquents had one game last year and are starting this season with an away game in Cornwall against the Seaway Roller Derby Girls’ Power Dames. You’ll be able to catch the Dollinquents in Ottawa on August 10 and September 7.

But don’t worry about waiting until August for derby action. CCDD’s first double header take place Saturday, July 6, 2013. The fun kicks off at 6:30 at Barbara Ann Scott Arena, featuring the Dolly Rogers against Kingston’s Disloyalists. Following a super quick intermission (a quick staff swap…players becoming refs, refs becoming players), the Slaughter Squad will be taking on Montreal’s Mont Royals. Tickets for this awesome, amazing, super fun event are $12 in advance. You can buy tickets online here because Shopify, our awesome sponsor, made this possible. If you wait to get them at the door, they’ll cost you $15. As usual, under 12ers get in free.

Some nitty gritty: bring ID. We’re sponsored by Beau’s.  There will be food. There will be awesome merch. If you wanna sit by the track, bring a camping chair and hang out. Make signs. Be prepared to be loud. You will have so much fun, it’ll hurt your face. In a good way.

Four teams, two games, so much derby, your face will hurt!
