CHUM cheers on Roller Derby

Discussion in 'Where CHUM Plays' started by DivingDoug, Jul 10, 2017.

    Imagine graceful, slender ice skaters performing a ballet to soft classical music, except instead of ice skating it's roller skating, instead of ballet it's more like a shoving match, instead of classical it's mostly rock, and instead of graceful, slender dancers it's awesome, tough as nails women.

    That, dear CHUMMERs is Roller Derby and I want you to join us to watch the Houston Roller Derby championship on August 26th.

    The details:
    New Date: Sept. 30th, 2017
    $15 a person for general seating (you're responsible for purchasing your tickets, and they're available now)
    Doors open at 6pm, the game starts at 7, and lasts about an hour and a half.
    Located at the Revention Music Center, 520 Texas Avenue
    You can't bring in outside food or drink but there's a concession stand inside that does sell booze.
    Parking next door for $10

    Afterwards we can head to one of the fine drinking establishments in the theater district, or one of the less-fine ones depending on who shows up ;)

    Who's in?

    We will be out of town but CHUM did this a number of years ago. A group on the South side built a banked track that was set up inside the auto bays of an old Kmart at 146 and the Palmer Highway in Texas City. Was a lot of fun. I dont know if the couple I know are still involved with it anymore. Went to the adjoining bar afterwards. I think the one at Revention is flat track.

    Oops, KJenns are out of state that weekend, so we won't be able to cheer on roller derby. It should be a fun night.

    You will be missed. I'll have an extra drink for each of you ;)

    For all you rollermaniacs, I just created a gallery here so you can post your pics. It's a fun time for sure...

    Just found out roller derby is being postponed to Sept 30th. Apparently they're worried about someone named Harvey... strange :confused:

    Well that's too bad, what am I going to do this weekend? maybe I'll find this Harvey guy, he sounds like fun.

    Definitely. I'm not allowed out much, so might as well take advantage of it.
