The Texas Rollergirls’ regular season may be over, but there’s still plenty of ways to get involved. For the less energetic amongst you, Sunday, Aug. 31 at 8pm at Roadhouse Rags (1600 Fortview), there’s a bottomless mojito fundraiser for the travel team to get to the WFTDA nationals in Portland ($10 suggested donation). But if you’re serious about your skating, this coming Monday is team tryouts. Here’s the press release:
Think you have what it takes to be a Texas Rollergirl? Well now's your chance! We are holding open tryouts on Monday, September 1st at Playland Skate Center (8822 McCann Drive). Tryouts begin promptly at 7:30 pm. If you have your own skates and equipment (helmet, wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads, mouth guard) please bring them. If you don't have equipment, there will be some available for you to use during tryouts. If you don't have skates, they will be available for rental at the rink for $2. Before coming to tryouts, please download and fill out a registration form in advance. For more information about tryouts, contact Shank at firstname.lastname@example.org.
