Thunder Snow

The thunder woke me up and hour ago. Since then I have been glued to the local storm coverage--commercial free! Why do I like watching idiots freak out about snow? The best part is when they send reporters out to suffer in the elements or drive to where the biggest traffic jams are. Yay snow!

Hallmark and AFA

Use the AFA site against them. Their web form lets you replace the snarky message to send kudos to Halmark.

Hallmark Greeting Cards has announced it will begin selling same-sex wedding cards, even though same-sex marriage is legal in only two states. The purpose, they say, is to satisfy consumer demand. It appears that their purpose is also to push same-sex marriage. Last year Hallmark began offering "coming out" cards - as in "coming out of the closet" -- a euphemism for announcing homosexuality.

All tickets are General Admission (GA) -- $25 ($30 day of sale) with 21+ beer garden or all ages options.
All ages seating is limited. Please choose this ticketing option only if you are a minor or accompanying a minor to the bout.
*babes in arms and kids under 3 are free! Discount tickets available for children 12 and under.

Bleachers are 1st come, 1st served so get there early to claim your spot! The rest is floor seating that puts you right next to the action. Floor seating is not available in the all ages area.

Roller derby is a hard-hittin' fast-paced sport! There is always a chance that a rollergirl could end up in your lap, so pay attention and ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!

NO LARGE BAGS OR BACKPACKS ALLOWED! So leave 'em in the car! We allow re-entry with a hand stamp so you can always get stuff later. Also, no outside food or beverage. Small pillows allowed.

NO TAILGATING! Please refrain from tailgating with your own alcohol. You will jeopardize our (cash only) beer garden. Also, please be responsible after the bout -- don't drink and drive! Rollergirls don't like drunk drivers, and we'll kick your ass.

CASH ONLY! If you forget to bring cash from home, don't worry! There will be an ATM conveniently located inside the hangar, so no more dashing to the 7-11 during halftime. Be sure to check out our cash-only merchandise table and concessions.

ADA ACCESSIBLE SEATING! We strive to accommodate all roller derby fans -- if you need a particular seating arrangement (space for a wheelchair, etc.) please e-mail Selma Soul @ ticketing@ratcityrollergirls.com
