Updates and Whip It Tomorrow!

It's officially the off-season for Houston Roller Derby's home teams, but there is still a lot going on! Our own travel team, the Houston HaRD Knocks will be playing this weekend in the Southern Fried Smackdown in Atlanta, hoping to secure a place in the national championship. I'll try to link to live feeds on the Derby News Network this weekend. We also have some fundraisers and an exhibition game coming up, plus three more tryout dates before next season. See? We're actually busy.

But the big news for the moment is that Drew Barrymore's movie Whip It comes out soon and very soon! If you have not heard the buzz about this movie, it stars Ellen Page as a Texas gal who finds her way into roller derby. If you can't wait until the movie officially opens, there are a few sneak peaks coming up, the first of which is TOMORROW, September 24, at the Edwards Grand Palace in Houston. The screening starts at 7:30, and if you want to get in, email recruitment at houstonrollerderby dot com for free passes. You'll want to be early also.

Please email if you want passes, and keep checking in for live feeds of the Southern Fried Smackdown and info on our other upcoming events!
