July may be NOVA’s vacation month but we certainly never stop the derby business. On the 4th, we made our annual appearance in the Leesburg Independence Day Parade and even had a float! We are always proud to help represent Leesburg especially on our national day of FREEDOM!
On July 19th we will be holding our 2nd annual Good vs Evil mixer. This year’s theme is everybody’s favorite: Harry Potter! And you know what a themed bout means: costumes and fun names!
First we have an all-women’s bout: Gryffindor vs Slytherin and then a co-ed bout: Order of the Phoenix vs The Death Eaters. This particular bout is less of a production for fans and more of an opportunity for skaters from the region to play together all at once! There will be no half-time show, no merchandise table – just pure roller derby and Harry Potter fun! And because it will be such a low-key and low production bout so it’s free to fans! Be sure to bring a chair and feel free to get into the spirit and dress up as well.
At the bout we will be collecting back to school supplies for Northern Virginia Family Services, such as backpacks, 12″ rulers, calculators, glue sticks, and wide-ruled composition books. For a full list of items that the NVFS is in need of, click here.
After the bout, make sure you come out to Mahalo Cove to help NOVA not only celebrate but to support a great sponsor of ours!
Looking ahead, on August 2nd we will be stationed outside of Office Depot in the Potomac Run Plaza to collect school supplies for Operation Homefront. We will spend that Saturday from 8:30am to 3:30pm. Operation Homefront is an organization that helps military families by providing essential home items, financial assistance and many other services. So stop on by during your tax-free weekend shopping to help support military families in need.
