#Toronto Roller Derby Season Opener 2012 Coming Soon

Downsview Park's Bunker will be setting up their bleacher seating, putting stripes on the Zebra Mafia, bringing in the beer and coolers, and laying out the flat track for the of the 2012 Season Opener of the Toronto Roller Derby Double Header on Saturday, Feb 4. The action is fast paced, the ladies have personality plus and the crashes and falls are hard enough that you will feel them in the audience. Besides bleacher seating you can bring in cushions, blankets or chairs in the floor areas.
Real Women, Real Hits. Real Heart at 40 Carl Hall Road, Studio 3. Doors open at 5pm, bout starts at 6pm. Pre-bout introduces the D-VAS: Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (Red team against Black team), followed by the main battle between the Gore-Gore Rollergirls and the Chicks Ahoy!

From TORD "The 2012 season will begin with a shortened exposition bout - pitting rookie versus rookie, as skaters on Toronto’s farm team the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad face off and show their skills.
The headlining bout is a grudge match that pits rivals the Chicks Ahoy! against the Gore-Gore Rollergirls. The Chicks Ahoy! surprised Toronto fans with their decisive victory in the 2011 Championship bout; a major upset over the previous year’s Boot Championship winners, the Gores.

The Gores are hungry to reclaim the title as an undefeated dynasty. Both teams are home to highly decorated top tier players, many of whom comprise the roster of Toronto’s all-star travel team, CN Power."
The growing attendance and support of the fans has seen an increase in teams which now include: Chicks Ahoy!, CN Power (Toronto's All Star Team), Death Track Dolls, Gore-Gore Rollergirls, Smoke City Betties and the D-VAS.

The game  has players circling the track following each team's pivots (wear striped helmet cover) who set the pace of the pack. Each team has a Jammer (wear stars on the helmet cover)  who try to get through the pack as they are blocked by the opposing team, to end up as lead Jammer. As the lead Jammer laps opponents they score points. Each game is comprised of two periods of 30 minute periods with five girls per team on the track at any time.
