Ahoy Hammer City landlubbers!

Raise your sails and set course to the Hamilton waterfront on September 11 at 2pm for an outdoor roller derby event that will send you overboard with excitement. For the first and only time this season, the Hammer City Roller Girls (HCRG) will bout against each other, in an all-pirate, no-holds-barred, battle of the buccaneers you don’t want to miss. Who will you raise a grog to? The fearsome Blackbeard Booty or the fast and sassy Jackie Red Sparrows? Both teams will feature a mix of HCRG’s veteran and newer skaters so you know it’s going to be a ruthless plunder for skating supremacy by the sea.

HCRG christened Hamilton Waterfront Trust’s skate pad last summer with a hotly contested intra-league bout, and are thrilled to be back as part of a historical maritime weekend that also features the appearance of the most-traveled tall ship in history, the Pride of Baltimore II.
