Next Open Scrimmage- 1/22/2012

After the great time we had on at the December 18th open scrimmage, we've decided to host another in January.

Besides the Quadfathers and CNY, we had skaters from Albany All-Stars, Capital District Trauma Authority, Hellions of Troy, Oz Rollergirls, Watertown Roller Derby, ROC City, Pioneer Valley, and Garden State. Big thanks to our refs and NSO's who came out from all of these leagues (plus our home folks) too! Overall it was a great experience. We split 36 skaters into 3 teams of 12 and each team played two 30 minute halves against both other teams. Afterwards anyone that wanted to keep playing played another 30 minute half.

The next date will be run very similar, with teams split depending on numbers. $5 per skater admission fee for skaters, refs and NSO's free. Sunday January 22nd- arrive as early as 12, start warming up at 1pm, announcements and scrimmages start at 1:30. We can skate until 4pm.
All skaters who have passed WFTDA/MRDA minimum skills assessments are welcome to participate. All skaters must be comfortable in a co-ed scrimmage environment. Everyone needs one black and one white shirt with at least their player number on it. Our floor is Mateflex sports tile, very similar to SportCourt. The colder it is, the slicker our floor gets. We recommend hybrid wheels.

The venue is called 'SportsPlx' and is located at:
496 French Rd
Utica NY 13502

[It is just behind the train/hobby shop]
The burrito place next door has agreed to provide a number of dishes at $5 per meal prices for us afterwards. We will have menues available.
