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

  • ARC Health and Fitness Cowcaddens Road Glasgow, G4 0LU United Kingdom (map)

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.




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.
