Everyone at NRD – skaters, our zebras, NSOs, and volunteers – is looking forward to seeing our fans and kicking off the 2014 season with a doubleheader on Saturday! The event starts with the Battle for the Iron Throne, a league mixer with two teams of skaters from all of our home teams. Then Penn Jersey’s She Devils take on the Skate Troopers. We have a fantastic half-time show lined up between the bouts: UniStars Unicycling Showtroupe will be performing! We are also collecting new socks, underwear, and travel size toiletries to support New Hope Housing, which offers award-winning services to homeless men, women and children that help them change their lives. #skatehardgiveback
There are so many ways to get tickets for this event! There are the usual ways – get them online in advance from Brown Paper Tickets, stop at our sponsor, Alpine Ski Shop, for paper tickets or ask your favorite skater for them, or just get tickets for the entire Season Passes at a great cost savings – 8 bouts for just over the price of 6! You can, of course, get them at the door for $12 also.
If you are you Active Duty Military or an honorably discharged Veteran from any branch of service US military service, you may be able to get free tickets to our bouts; we partner with Veteran Tickets Foundation (VetTix), a group that provides free and discounted admission to a variety of events – including all ticketed NOVA Roller Derby events! For details, visit VetTix and their page for our Season Opener - and thank you for your service!
You could win a Season Pass for all the NRD 2014 home bouts if you are on Facebook! When our Facebook page hits like #3333 (we are just over 3000 at the moment) we’ll do a drawing for the pass. How do you enter, you ask? First, like our page and this post on Facebook – that’s your ticket into the contest – then invite your friends and share our page so that we get to 3333 as quick as we can!
Speaking of all those likes, did you know that we can help promote your business? We’re looking for sponsors for our 2014 season and offer several sponsorship packages with different levels of promotion for your business. Just last weekend we had a successful event with Catoctin Creek Distillery. Our favorite after party spot, Mahalo Cove, has also become a sponsor this year, along with Hess Plastic Surgery and our returning, long-time sponsor, Alpine Ski Shop. Talk to you favorite skater or get in touch with us about what we can offer you!
