Who Will SUR5 This Weekend?
17. October 2014 14:49
On Saturday 18th October our very own Bench Manager – Ali Renton – will be hosting an all-day roller derby tournament at The Peak in Stirling.
The tournament will follow the SUR5AL format, where teams of 5 skaters will battle it out in quick fire rounds to see who will survive through to the final and emerge victorious!
This is the second SUR5AL tournament that Ali has hosted. All proceeds will help support her chosen charities: Glendrick Roost Animal Welfare Centre and St Andrew’s First Aid. Both charities will benefit from the money raised from ticket sales and the raffle tickets.
12 teams of 5 skaters will be competing in this year's tournament, and 2 of these teams are from Fierce Valley Roller Girls! The other roller derby leagues that will be represented are:
- Auld Reekie Roller Girls
- Bairn City Rollers
- Blackpool Roller Derby Team
- Dundee Roller Girls
- Furness Firecrackers
- Glasgow Roller Derby
- New Town Roller Girls
- Team Crazy Legs: Roller Derby, Mental Health & Chronic Illness
- Voodoo Roller Dollies
Doors will open at The Peak at 11.30am, with the first whistle for the first group stage being blown at 12noon.
Tickets are available online from Brown Paper Tickets for £5 (12-18 year olds) or £10 (adults). Please join Ali’s Facebook Event for the SUR5ORS tournament for further details.
