The Chattanooga Roller Girls (CRG) will host The Mississippi Rollergirls in their final bout of the season on Saturday, at the Chattanooga Trade and Convention Center at 7 p.m.
CRG is currently undefeated at home for the 2014 season and is hoping for a record crowd on Saturday night. They will be offering a $2 discount at the door for fans wearing Southern Brewer Festival wristbands. There will be a superhero costume contest at halftime as well as a sock derby exhibition with several members of local Chattanooga Football Club supporters, the Chattahooligans.
CRG has one of the strongest fan bases in the roller derby community, which has steadily grown since the Chattanooga Roller Girls skated into town in 2009. Each year, the excitement has grown along with the fans, who number anywhere from 800-1000+ at every home game. "The family-friendly, fast-paced bouts are a great, inexpensive way to spend a Saturday night," said 'The mBOMBinator', Shawn Williamson.
Not only are the Chattanooga Roller Girls tough and fierce competitors on the derby track, they are also conscientious and passionate contributors within the community. The team supports local organizations by participating in events and donating a portion of the proceeds from home bouts to local charities. A portion of the proceeds from the final game will be going to Girls, Inc. A non-profit organization dedicated to 'inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold on their journey to self-discovery.
