TRD February 18, 2012, Home Bout
February to most girls includes a nice dinner, flowers, jewelry, and romance. But the girls of Tucson Roller Derby aren't your every-day kind of lady, and this February we are celebrating with hits and bruises! February 18th marks the 5th home game in the race to the conference championship, and if last month's game is any indication, the competition is tougher than ever! As with our last game, TRD is happy to announce that all three of your home teams will be playing in one night! In the first bout, the VICE Squad dukes it out against their long-time rivals, the Furious Truckstop Waitresses. In the second game of the night, the Copper Queens will fight for a home team win against the reigning AZ State champions, the Bad News Beaters of Arizona Roller Derby.
Derby girls can break hearts, but this February we're going to be helping them. Tucson Roller Derby is proud to present the American Heart Association and the Tucson Heart Walk as our featured charities of the month. The funds raised in the Heart Walk will support projects like these: Putting up-to-the-minute research into doctors' hands- so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients. Groundbreaking pediatric heart and stroke research. About 36,000 babies are born with heart defects each year research is the key to saving babies' lives. Getting life-saving information to those who need it most information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor about critical health choices.
Flowers die and bruises fade, but scars and a big win are forever. The 2nd Arizona State Conference is quickly coming to a close, and with only one more home game to go before the championship in May, the girls of TRD will be fighting their hearts out for a win. Will the VICE Squad be able to break the Waitresses winning streak? Will the Copper Queens bring home a victory for the home team? Come on out to the Bookman's Event Center on February 18th to see all your favorite skaters in one night of awesome derby action.
