Friday June 2nd - Gotham Girls Roller Derby Crashes in Brooklyn!
Doors open: 7:30pm

After the action packed, sold-out season opener between the Manhattan Mayhem and Bronx Gridlock (79-76) at the Schwartz Center in downtown Brooklyn, the league is now unleashing the ultimate in rivalries - Brooklyn vs. Queens. Brooklyn had a hard season in 2005, but they have dropped anchor and are ready to to defend their borough against the dominating 2006 Undefeated Champions - the Queens of Pain. No matter who you are rooting for, you need to witness this match-up...or suffer the consequences. Better bring your white flag to surrender - or your riding crop for the opposite. Whatever.

Many fans were turned away for the season opener, so don't miss out on this must-see event! Get your tickets online now at

Perks for the night include:

- New Skaters - Some of our 36 talented fresh derby divas will debut their skills!
- Snack Bar Goodies - The LIU Blackbirds will sling snacks all night long

We may have a place to crash for our first few games, but we are still hunting for a regular practice and bouting location, along with the search for sponsors to help bring you more derby action.

In order to skate in the LIU-Brooklyn venue, GGRD had to spring for a portable protective floor to cover LIU's existing fancy basketball court surface. This required a *huge* chunk of change (many thousands of dollars). If you know of a business or individual who would be interested in sponsoring sections of the floor, please let us know. And if you know of a location that has a large, flat floor, we are interested! Contact us at (646) 405-9803, or visit our website for details on how you can help.
