We Can Do It . . . As Quad City Rollers

Your Quad City Rollers are hosting a recruiting night for skaters, referees and volunteers, on Sunday, November 21 at Skate City -- 1140 Avenue of the Cities, East Moline. This is a great time for you to come check us out, skate with us and see if this roller derby thing might be for you. Skate City will be open from 6:00-8:00 PM.

If you don't have speed skates rentals are on us!

We will be holding a derby demo with explanation followed by a typical practice with time for others to join us on skates and inquire to your hearts content on what you need to know to get started with the Quad Cities original roller derby team.

Hope to see you there, or check us out at www.quadcityrollers.com.
