The Babes are Back in Town

by Doug MacRostie

Bemidji’s Babe City Rollers are taking on the Des Moines Derby Dames on Saturday, Nov. 19th in the John Glas Field House at BSU.

The Babe’s are one of the latest member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), the national governing body for women’s amateur flat track roller derby in the U.S.

As a new member of the WFTDA, the Babes join the ranks of over 75 all-female, skater owned and operated leagues nationwide that have united to lead the growing sport of women’s flat track roller derby. WFTDA member leagues engage in sanctioned interleague play, including regional and national tournaments. The Babe’s are a member of the North Central region.

The Des Moines Derby Dames are also newly minted WFTDA members, and this is sure to be a great match.

Doors open at 5p, and starting at 5:30pm it’s the Babe City Roller Whistle Punks (B team) vs. Forx Roller Derby League, then at  7pm the Babe City Roller All-Stars vs. Des Moines Derby Dames. $5 for adults, $3 under 18, FREE for kids under 10 and BSU students.

The First City Dance Studio will one again perform at the half of both bouts.
