Parking will be free! Please note, sitting alongside the track puts you within feet of the action and places you at higher risk of involvement in a skater collision. Arrive early enough to make seating arrangements you are comfortable with.

These events may be broadcasted live. By reading this, you agree that your voice, image, or likeness may be included in the broadcast, or non-broadcast media, or as part of promotions and marketing for the Rose City Rollers.

Please arrive when doors open if ADA seating is needed. No photography/video recording permitted without prior approval. No one under 18 is permitted to sit on the floor alongside the track. Children 6 and under are free for these events. Doors open at 7pm, skating starts at 8pm.

  3. Kevin Larkin August 1, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    It will great to see the match up close as opposed to volunteering and hoping for a good spot inside. Good luck to all. No matter what, it will be a great night of fun.

  4. Jacque August 1, 2012 at 6:33 pm #

    I have never been! I have an old rooomate that joined the Betties and I haven’t seen her in a few years. I would love to see how the game is played while watching live.

  8. Jon LameBull August 2, 2012 at 3:33 am #

    I’d want too see The Rose City Rollers vs. The Portland Men’s Roller Derby to say I actually saw some girls beat-up some guys on roller skates! It’d be an experience!

  9. Holly Hoover August 2, 2012 at 6:46 am #

  10. Liberty Martinez August 2, 2012 at 6:56 am #

  14. CC Goff August 2, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    Oh man do I want to see my first ever Roller Derby match live and in person! I’ve heard the stories, I’ve heard the rumors, but I want to see the truth!! Does Portland really have the best matches out there?? I’ve been told we have great teams in this lovely city of ours, please let me go see them live!!

  15. Stefanie August 2, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

  17. Christopher Navarro August 2, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

    Roll those tickets my way!

  18. Kait August 2, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

    I want to attend the Friday night bout. I’ve been a fan of roller derby for a few years now, so much so that I’ve come up with my own roller derby name. It’s Malice in Wonderland. I think that’s clever enough to earn me free tickets to the bout.

  19. George August 2, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

    SoulfearicAcid parties!

  20. Lisa August 2, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    Just like the Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page movie….except live. So even better.

  21. Hovers August 2, 2012 at 2:07 pm #

    My girl would kill to be able to roll with these girls but just had injections in her back and sergury to follow.

  22. Mark August 2, 2012 at 2:10 pm #

    I want to roll in the deep please…

  23. Karen August 2, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    I’d love to win tickets to the Sat. bout!

  24. Jane August 2, 2012 at 2:18 pm #

    What better way to show my 14-year-old granddaughter about Girl Power than to walk over the Sellwood Park hill, down to Oaks Park and see the Boys vs. Girls event? Besides, this 62-year-old woman has been wanting to see Rose City Rollers for years, so what better time than now?

  25. Ian August 2, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    I have been 1 one roller derby and loved it, I would love to go to this

  26. Scott August 2, 2012 at 2:23 pm #

    I would love to win for this Saturday to escape the heat or the 25th to just escape!

  27. Sara August 2, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    Haven’t been yet!!

  28. Jessica August 2, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

    It would be awesome to see some raw woman power!

  29. Dian August 2, 2012 at 2:40 pm #

    Cuz I’m a roller derby virgin, please break my cherry!

  30. Frank Byers August 2, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

    Punk rock ass kicking mayhem, female empowerment, in solidarity with those women who stand up for themselves — can’t miss this.

  31. Grego August 2, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    Love the derby! It’s been a couple years since I went last.

  32. Eddie Trojan August 2, 2012 at 3:21 pm #

    Haven’t been to the derby for a few years! That’s what happens when you have a kid… but she’s six now, and probably old enough to start dreaming of smashin’ in some heads!

  33. M August 2, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    WOW! I want to win this because
    I’ve ONLY seen live roller derby in alabama!

  34. Kayt de Fever August 2, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

    My younger, more punk-rock alter ego is named Raucous Ruby. She’s a roller derby girl. In actuality, I’m a creative smartypants with a desk job and a young kid. The best part of winning tickets to this weekend’s battle is seeing first-hand what my parents were saving me from when they didn’t get me pro derby skates for my 16th birthday. The second best part of winning tickets is having cash the pay the babysitter.

  35. Nola August 2, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

    what a bunch of fun!! Would love to see this one, and treat that sweet old guy of mine to a great evening of chick madness. Please. thx.

  36. birdonit August 2, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    I’ve never seen male roller girls before. Hopefully they’ll be wearing fishnets ;) I’d love tickets for the boys vs girls bout on Saturday!

  37. Martin August 2, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    Roll me, baby!

  38. Kris August 2, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to go!

  39. james August 2, 2012 at 5:01 pm #

    hi, I remember watching these matches in the old days. Before we had a color tv. I remember thinking the refs were made to look foolish. I hope that’s better now. Fairness will bring new fans!!

  40. Kimberly August 2, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

    Im a single parent of 2 (1 boy and 1 girl) after losing my job and our home a few months back. we finaly caught a break and I stated sa new job this week. I think they would love to go see the battle of the sexes. They can take a night off of their own sibling battles :) weve never been to a roller derby. Sounds fun

  41. laura August 2, 2012 at 6:11 pm #

    Please! I have never seen a bout and I’ve always wanted to cheer on our roller derby gals!

  42. Stephanie August 2, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    Loooove derby!

  43. Antonia August 2, 2012 at 6:56 pm #

    Roller derby up close and personal! Sounds like fun!

  44. James August 2, 2012 at 7:10 pm #

    Definitely 8/3, women against girls is the only way to go!

  45. RK August 2, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    Can I win tickets, please?

  46. yesitssteadycat August 2, 2012 at 7:53 pm #

    you could send others, you could send yourself…but you can’t send your other-self. exitential quandary or clear road map to steadycat? you decide, but hurry: free will is an illusion, and I really need to go….

  47. Dave,H August 2, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    My kids would love me more if I treated them to another awesome night at the roller derby on 10/19/2012. My 12yeae olddaughter Kaitlyn cant wait until she is old enough to play for you guys!

  48. Perla August 2, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

    My sister is visiting from Cali for the first time and I’d love to take her to her first roller derby and show her some good Pdx fun. 8/3 would be great.

  49. mrs.o August 2, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

    I would love to go and take my wife Saturday night! Going to a roller derby is on our “things to do now that we’re officially Portlanders” list and we haven’t yet checked that one off! Pick us! :)

  50. Missy August 2, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    Myself and 4 other Derby NSO’s from frigid Astoria to sultry Portland for the weekend to bask in all things that make derby and PDX awsome. We’re training hard all weekend to help support our Shangheied Roller Dolls to put on their first public bout 8/19/12!
    Care to make our night in the town a little more special with some sweet passes to the show?

  51. Sherri August 2, 2012 at 8:44 pm #

    LOVE RCR! Really wish I had a healthy knee so I could try out!

  52. Casey Block August 2, 2012 at 10:05 pm #

    I wanna see a bunch of bad ass girls looking sexy on skates!

  53. Brian Cr August 2, 2012 at 10:18 pm #

  54. jimbobber August 3, 2012 at 12:38 am #

  55. panda August 3, 2012 at 2:34 am #

    derby is so wicked cool, friday night bout would be awesome!

  56. Deanaca reid August 3, 2012 at 9:04 am #

    Dear friends at pdx pipeline,
    I have friends here visiting from Phoenix this weekend and I am trying to convince them how amazing our city is. (not a difficult task)I am hoping they will move here soon. We used to frequent roller derbies back in the day in Tucson and central Phoenix. It would be a great way to reconnect with old friends and show off Portland’s “it” factor. Thanks for considering me. Does The possibility of 4 tickets exist? We’ll see ;)

  57. Jessica August 3, 2012 at 9:06 am #

    I have never been to a mens derby before, only female. I think it’d be pretty killer to see them circling around in they tight clothes pushing each other, pick me.

  58. Q.N. August 3, 2012 at 9:19 am #

    I’ve never been to roller derby ! It sounds fun!! I’d love to go :) send me, send me!

  59. Q.N. August 3, 2012 at 9:21 am #

    I didn’t say which bout!!!
    I’d go to either one, since it’s my first time I’m sure I’ll dig either one!!

  60. Gretchen M August 3, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

    Love, love, love Roller Derby and RCR. Pick me, pick me!!!

  61. Rob W August 3, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

  62. Sheryl August 3, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I feel like the coolest kid in town when I’m at a RCR bout…

  63. hillary August 3, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    Amazing! I would love to go!

  64. Lisa August 3, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

  65. steadycat August 3, 2012 at 6:03 pm #
