The main event will be a bout between Greensboro Roller Derby’s travel team, the Gate City Roller Girls, and Richmond’s Star City Roller Girls.
“MARZO LOCO” is a family-friendly event. Tickets will be available at the door.

Greensboro Roller Derby was founded in February 2010. Since the league’s debut bout in October of 2010, Greensboro Roller Derby has grown steadily, now supporting over forty skaters in three home teams that compete locally, and a highly competitive travel team that competes regionally. Please support local roller derby and take part in making the 2012 season a smashing (not to mention crashing, flying, and sliding) success!
