Spudtown Knockdown Tournament

Saturday, April 2-Sunday, April 3


It's hard to decide what's the best part of a good roller derby match. There's the retro cool of roller skates, the intimidation factor of women who could crunch you up and eat you for breakfast, the sheer athleticism of the game, the creative player names (i.e. Dawn of the Shred, Oh Yoshi Didn't, Jane Eyre Raid, Phantom of the Dropya and Raggedy Ann-ihilation) and the mini-skirts. Everybody likes mini-skirts.

The Seventh Annual Spudtown Knockdown Tournament promises all of the above and more. Teams from across the country will compete at Expo Idaho in 20 bouts over the weekend.
