Abe Stark Arena

Coney Island's Abe Stark Arena -- ordinarily a civic ice hockey venue -- will be transformed into a Boardwalk Roller Derby Palace of Awesome!
The Manhattan Mayhem look to improve their winning ways and defend their 2012 Championship status as they rumble with the Queens of Pain. The Queens will look to bring the pain to the Mayhem and repeat the victory they inflicted on Orange last year.
Following the Ladie's game will be the Men's game - New York Shock Exchange versus Your Mom, of Des Moines Iowa - the current Champions of the Men's Roller Derby Association.
Doors open at 3pm, with bouting action beginning at 5pm. Bouting should be complete before 9pm.
The venue (pictured here at http://www.nycgo.com/venues/abe-stark-rink) will allow both trackside seating and seating in the stands. Tickets are general admission only.
Alcohol will be served at the bout - a rarity for New York derby! Come on out for a day at Coney Island and an early evening of Gotham Girls Roller Derby.
Note that this bout is NOT slated for live internet broadcast due to lack of bandwidth available at the venue. To see it, you've gotta be there!
After-party plans TBA.
Abe Stark Arena is convenient to the Stillwell Avenue stop, at the end of the D, F, N, and Q trains. It's situated in the parking lot of MCU Park, just west of the subway stop.
Due to the layout of the venue, there will be no VIP seating for this event. All tickets are General Admission. If you plan to sit trackside, you should bring your own folding chair.
Children under the age of 18 will not be allowed to sit trackside. Children 5 and under are admitted free.
