On Saturday, February 18th, hailing from Minnesota the North Star Roller Girls will be visiting to face off against our very own Grand Raggidy.
First to the track will be Grand Raggidy’s All Stars and North Star’s Supernovas. The last time these two teams skated against one another was at the K-Town Shakedown where the Supernovas came out ahead by 63 points. According to the statistics, Grand Raggidy has a 31% chance of winning this game! You will just have to be there to see how it all goes down. Directly following that game, Grand Raggidy’s Attack will be giving their all against North Star’s Northern Lights. These two teams also played one another at K-Town Shakedown and Attack was blown out of the water by the Northern Lights. Although, this time around, Attack is compiled of some newer skaters and some veterans who have been training harder than ever. We will see who comes out victorious.
In coordination with Susan G. Komen, this evening will be an Experience Pink themed event! What is Experience Pink? It is a way for you to both have fun in Grand Rapids and support breast cancer awareness and research at the same time. 75% of the money raised will go towards providing assistance for women in West Michigan who are suffering from breast cancer and to also provide mammograms for those whom cannot afford it. The organization will have a booth at the game and will be taking contributions for the cause. Additionally, our track will be colored pink in support, and you should wear your favorite pink outfit to support the cause!
Tickets to the event are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Discounts for kids, students & seniors are available. Advanced tickets can also be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2780584 or ask a member of the teams if they are selling them!
Doors open at 5 p.m. and the action starts at 5:30 p.m. Be there or be square!
