We are pleased to announce that we have secured another practice location. Our new practices are at Genesis Centre at 7556 Falconridge Blvd NE.
Times are also posted on the calendar on the league website (please check for holiday changes). The new schedule is as follows:
July – September:
Jills: Mondays 7:30-9:30pm
Dogs: Saturdays 10am-12pm
Fresh Meat: Fridays 7:30-9:30pm starting July 12
League: Sundays 10am-1pm
PLEASE NOTE: For this week ONLY, Dogs practice will be held on Friday night and there will be NO FRESH MEAT PRACTICE due to our double-header on Saturday. Fresh Meat are welcome to come and skate at league practice on Sunday instead.
And be sure to come out to Acadia Rec Centre (240 – 90 Avenue SE)on Saturday, July 6th for our double-header event. The Kill Jills will be taking on Bow Valley’s Lady Macs followed up by a co-ed invitational extravaganza! We will also be raising money for the YWCA as they were our home for a very long time and were devastated by the recent flood. So come out, have some fun, and “Keep Calm And Derby On!”
We are disappointed to announce that due to the state of the roads, the Kill Jills and Glenmore Reservoir Dogs have had to cancel their away games in Revelstoke on June 29. We extend our apologies to the leagues involved in that event.
On a related note, due to the recent flooding in Calgary (and Alberta), the YWCA facilities have been affected by this crisis. This means that Chinook City is currently without practice space. We are looking at options and will provide an update once we have more information.
Despite the disappointing news about the upcoming bout and our space, Chinook City is very grateful (and lucky) that very few of our members were affected by the flood and there has been no loss of life in Calgary. Our hearts go out to our dear friends at Foothills Roller Derby Association and Bow Valley Roller Derby as their communities were devastated by the flood.
If you want to help, please consider a monetary donation to the Canadian Red Cross or keep your eyes and ears peels for volunteer opportunities in and around these communities.
It’s that time again! We are raising money for practice space. With all of the new fresh meat that has come through the door, we are in desperate need for additional practice space! So! To raise some cash, we are selling Coco Brooks pizzas! Nom, nom, nom!
Just hit up any member of the league for more information or to place an order! Orders can be placed until June 28th! Pickup for these yummo pizza-pies is July 16th!
Support local derby…. buy some pizza!!
