For those interested, Houston Roller Derbyâ€™s seventh season starts this weekend on March 17, 2012. This year we are playing at the Verizon Wireless Theater (downtown) at Bayou Place. The Houston All Stars Team (including Idylwood’s own Amy Dinn) will be taking on the all-star team from Assassination City (Dallas) this weekend as part of a double-header in combination with a home team bout (Psych Ward Sirens versus Bayou City Bosses).
Here are our season dates in case you want to make plans to attend this season:
- Saturday, March 17

All bouts start at 7pm. Doors open at 6pm. You can get $15 tickets in advance through Amy Dinn or on the Houston Roller Derby website at www.houstonrollerderby.com. Day-of sales are through the Verizon box office.
