Roller derby this weekend

by Dege Legg

Women's roller derby invades Youngsville. For the past year or so, women's roller derby has slowly crept into the cultural patchwork of Acadiana. Now it's somewhat of an official local sport with a league, uniforms, and all that stuff. If you're interested in checking out the slam and bang of tough chicks on wheels, the lastest bout happens this weekend. In what they are terming the "School Yard Shuffle," the Acadiana Good Times Rollers will face off against the Cajun Rollergirls at Top Shelf Sports, located at 1616 Youngsville Highway on Aug. 28. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or you can buy them online. Bust it.
