The West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League launches into its third season with their season opener Friday at the Rossland arena.

First whistle at 6 p.m. and it’s a doubleheader between Salmo’s Babes of Brutality and Nelson’s Lumber Jackies, followed by Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers and Rossland’s Gnarlie’s Angels.

The 2012 season will see 26 bouts hosted in the West Kootenays, primarily in Rossland (where the arena provides a dedicated derby surface from April through September), and both the Castlegar and Nelson Community Complex when the ice comes out.

The season features six doubleheader bouts, three  Kootenay Kannibelles home games and the semifinal and championship bouts, to be held on weekends and featuring the full entertainment package: half-time show, bar, mobile food concessions, raffles, door prizes, music, announcers, providing suitable entertainment for the whole family!

New this year:  single mid-week bouts without all the bells-and-whistles for only $5.

Tickets are $10 in advance ($15 at the door, $2 for kids) from Phat Angel in Nelson, Mountain High Lighting in Castlegar, West Kootenay Scuba in Salmo, RossVegas in Rossland and Gerick Cycle & Sport in Trail.

Online tickets sales at www.kootenayrollerderby.com where you can check out the 2012 Bout Schedule and contemplate the bounty of a seasons pass before they’re gone on April 21.
