The competition will take place at NYTEX Sports Centre (8851 Ice House Road, North Richland Hills). Doors open at a special time for the Bonus Bout at 5:30pm and the action will start at 6:00pm. The 2010 season opener hosted 1400 Dallas roller derby fans and has been sold out every game since! Get there early if you want a trackside seat but don’t forget to BYOC (bring your own chair)! The bleachers will be open, so there will be plenty of room! The Devils expect another capacity crowd. This bout will sell-out, so get your tickets to this PG-13 event in advance for only $12 if purchased from your favorite derby girl or $13 on our website through Pay-Pal. If available, tickets at the door will be $15. Kids 12 and under are free if you choose to bring them. Since the regular season bouts are held at NYTEX, these bouts will NOT be BYOB but thanks to sponsor ZuRoma Sicilian Kitchen, enjoy the newest gift to the fans, $1.00 “derby draft” beers and $1.50 select cans from trackside. You can’t buy a good six-pack for any cheaper than that!
In other news, the Dallas Derby Devils are under new management! The league boasts a new attitude worth celebrating. They are still “skater owned and operated” but more skaters have stepped up to take the reins, so you can be assured of the same great sporting action. To go with the new business structure, DDD has launched a new Web site, so make sure you update your bookmarks to www.derbydevils.com.
When not at practice, the Devils continue the business of promoting and growing the league across North Texas. Clearly, DDD discovered a formula for success and are becoming stronger every season, heading into their fifth year of existence. The league is the largest of its kind, boasting the largest roster of active skaters—nearly 100 at last count—in the country. Volunteers are welcome. Security, production help, water boys, and ticket takers are a just few of the open positions. The league’s sponsorship drive remains underway to defray the league’s operating costs. Sponsors get bragging rights about being part of the derby revival at a ground level as they help the Dallas Derby Devils support worthy causes; a portion of all proceeds are donated to local charities.
