ROCK’s season coming to a close
The Rollergirls of Central Kentucky (ROCK) will compete in their last bout of the year on Saturday Oct. 16 against Radioactive City Roller Girls (RCRG). It’s a road bout for the girls of ROCK, who are set to take the Paducah Expo Center track at 8 PM. Doors open at 6 PM. Tickets are $12 at the door. For more information or directions to the bout visit www.radioactiverg.com.
ROCK is still looking for a permanent practice facility in the greater Lexington area. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas on where ROCK can organize its local activities, please contact the league at www.rocknrollergirls.com. Finding nearby practice space will help ensure our local rollerderby team stays in the local area. They assemble and dis-assemble the track before and after each practice, so the space doesn’t need to resemble a roller rink.
ROCK is also making its new uniform logo available to the public as part of its upcoming fund raising efforts. If you’d like to purchase a T shirt, hoodie, bag or coffee mug in support of the team once again contact the girls at www.rocknrollergirls.com.
We’d like to apologize to the girls of ROCK and Black-n-Bluegrass (BBRG) for the incorrect heading reported on September 16. BBRG are from Florence, KY, not Louisville as the headline incorrectly stated.
