Windy City Rollers Tue Dec 02 2008

Windy City Rollers 2009 Season Opener announced

What better way to deflower your new calendar than by writing in the date for the opening game for the Windy City Rollers 2009 season? Birthdays and anniversaries? Bah! Roller derby is where it's at!

On that note, the first bout will be on Saturday, January 31 at their new location, the UIC Pavilion. Double Crossers will play The Fury, while Manic Attackers will vie against the 2008 Ivy King Cup champions, Hell's Belles.
