"We Bleed Green" - Reduce, Reuse, Revenge!
Long Beach, CA - April 22nd 2011- Following the resounding success of their inaugural 2010 sell-out season, Long Beach Roller Derby (LBRD) is pleased to announce their return to the "Roller Dome" at the Queen Mary for the 2011 season. To honor Earth Day and recognize her commitment to the environment, we asked Vice Mayor Lowenthal to name our first bout. "We Bleed Green" is the name of the first game and will kick off the season on Earth Day, Friday April 22, 20ll, pitting the Terminal Island Tootsies against the 4th Street Retro Rollers.
This year promises greater excitement with the expansion of the league and a new banked track. Due to overwhelming community support and new derby members, LBRD has added a fourth team to its roster. The Belmont Hot Broads will make their season debut, adding another Long Beach neighborhood to the derby family.
LBRD is excited to unveil their custom built, high speed velodrome banked track. Weighing in at just over 11 tons, the new track will elevate the level of excitement and adrenaline of the game in a way that Long Beach has never experienced. With a full day and a large crew, the track will be moved from the Dome to the adjacent Harry Bridges Memorial Park on Friday September 30, 2011 for a seaside game under the stars.
