Winnipeg Roller Derby League - volunteers needed

 Winnipeg Roller Derby League is looking for volunteers at the Confusion Corner Chaos Tournament this weekend

Flat track roller derby is a full-contact sport, combining speed with strategy. The modern version of roller derby began in 2001, but its roots go back to the 1930s. However, unlike the first iteration of roller derby, in modern roller derby everything you see on the track is really happening. The hits are real, the falls are real, the strategy is real.

Unlike banked track roller derby, which is played on a special, raised track, flat track roller derby can be played on any flat surface large enough to tape out a track.

When:  June 25th  shifts 9:00am-3:00pm/3:00pm-9:00pm
           June 26th  shifts - 2 volunteers needed on shift - 9:00am-1:30pm
Where: Fort Garry Curling Club - 696 Archibald St.
