Dice Roll Cafe / GRD board games fundraiser

We are so excited to host, in association with Dice Roll Café, a day of cooperative board gaming. https://www.facebook.com/DiceRollCafe/

Tired of arguments breaking out over a game of Monopoly? Why not try playing co-op? Work with your fellow players to reach a common goal and ensure that you all remain friends. Whether you are saving the world from disease, surviving the zombie apocalypse or escaping from a sinking island it’s all for one and one for all. 

If you are in a small group we can find games for a few as 2 people or we can bring you together with others for a game. Although you will have access to the board game library if you have games you want to play or think others would like then bring them along. The focus of the day will be on cooperative games - however other game styles will be available. 

Experience is not required – our volunteers will be on hand to help you select the perfect game and explain the rules.

The event will be held in Garnethill community hall on 29th July 2017 from 2.30pm-8.00pm. Entry fee will be £5 and includes access to the board game library, one raffle entry (additional entries will be available for purchase), a limited-edition coaster and a cup of tea or coffee.

A range of refreshments will be available on site.

Whether you're looking for a lazy afternoon with friends, a day of real quality time with the family or an alternative night out or a memorable date experience come join us.

Your entry price includes full access to the board game library, one free entry to the raffle and a complimentary drink (non alcoholic).

Need a table reserved? For each group ticket (6 players) sold we will reserve a table at the event.

Mixed teams double header:  Science vs Fantasy plus VR vs Soy Division
Aug
20
12:45 PM12:45

Mixed teams double header: Science vs Fantasy plus VR vs Soy Division

Roll up, roll up to the ARC for a full day of action packed roller derby!

Our first game's theme is Science vs Fantasy.  Will rationality, empiricism and presumably test tubes win the day?  Or will mystery, magic and probably Hogwarts references triumph?

As if that wasn't enough, the day will be a double header.  Soy Division, a band of rowdy vegans, here to prove they can do fierce battle powered only by plants, will take on Vagine Regime, made of proudly queer skaters from all over the UK, ready to skate hard and tackle homophobia while they're at it. The two teams met in Oldham back in May and after a tightly fought game, the Soy Division team allayed any protein deficiency fears and won the day, but who will come out on top this time?

The audience wins in any case, as you're going to see some great roller derby all day.  And if you're a queer vegan scientist, with a love of Lord of the Rings... well, you're going to find it hard to know who to cheer for, but you'll probably have a really good time...

There will be all the usual GRD fun of raffle, cakes, and entertainment.  Remember as long as they're with an adult under 14s are free.

TICKET SALES HAVE NOW CLOSED PLEASE PURCHASE AT VENUE

 

 

And don't forget to join us afterwards at Garnethill Multicultural Centre from 7.30 for QUEERIOSITY!  It's Pride weekend, and where better to get Saturday night started than a post-game boogie to celebrate all things queer and glittery?  At just £3, this is the best value best night of your life you'll see for a while.

Queeriosity #2: 90s grunge queer night with GRD!

Come on down and celebrate with us at another Queeriosity night at Garnethill Multicultural centre.

We had a great time in January, so we thought we'd do it again.  We're going 90s Grunge this time to enjoy some old tunes, but most off all we'd like to enjoy your company and queer up the night- whatever that means to you!  The night starts early and ends at midnight: ideal pre-club party or perfect if you want to dance your socks off but still get home early.

Tickets on the door will be just £3, but we're selling them online at the even cheaper rate of £2 if you book in advance.  Bring your friends!

All proceeds go directly to supporting GRD and helping the league continue to run.

Irn Bruisers vs Berlin Bombshells + Newbies Game

Come and join us to watch our Irn Bruisers take on the Bear City Roller Derby's Berlin Bombshells, all the way from Germany.  GRD and Bear City tangled last year in Germany, and this will be a tough, exciting game.

As an added bonus, some of Scotland's newest talent will hit the track in a newbies game before the main action.  Newly bout-ready skaters from GRD and other leagues will go against each other to try out their skills, in some first appearances.  This is where you get to see the stars (and pivot stripes!) of tomorrow!

All the usual fun of a Glasgow home game: cakes, raffle, exciting merch.  Let's give the Bear City crew a warm welcome and show them the GRD home game atmosphere.
