Roller Derby Mon Jan 24 2011

It's Official: WCR Looking for Officiating Staff

Ever wanted to be a part of the Windy City Rollers but are worried about injuries or are, you know, male? This is your chance to participate in local roller derby: The rollers are in need of folks 21+ (female or male) who are willing to donate their time and be a part of the non-skating staff (such as score keepers and penalty box staff).

There will be a meeting for those interested on Wednesday, Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Boiler Room (2210 N. California Ave). Contact for more info.
