It’s a brand new season for the skaters of Ottawa Valley Roller Derby, and we are ready to Go, Go, GO! OVRD is proud to present the first home event of 2019, a full-contact double header on Saturday, May 25th at McNabb Arena. The first game pits OVRD’s Byward Bs against Kingston Roller Derby. The second game is a OVRD House league battle: Centre Block against East Block. You won’t want to miss a minute of either of these exciting games.
This is a family-friendly, licensed event. Bring your camping chairs and settle in to the Kichesippi Beer Garden. Don’t forget your I.D., so you can partake in the fine local craft beer available for purchase.
Admission is $10 with tickets available at the door (Kids 10 and under get in free. Limit 2 kids per adult, please).
Doors will open at 5:30pm.
