There’s only one more month to go this summer but it’s looking like a good one! Below you will find a decent list of all the upcoming roller derby bouts accross Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba which I have been able to track down (in no small part due to help from other referees).
If you happen to know of any other bouts in the prairies near you that are not listed here please feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll add them right away! Furthermore, are there any listed here that you are already planning on attending? If so, how stoked are you?
Anyway, start marking your calendars off! There’s tons of stellar roller derby to look forward to this August! Check back regularly for updates!
