Brawlin' Betties Roll Over the Knockouts
Roller Derby returned to Santa Barbara Saturday night Nov. 7, 2009 where the Mission City Brawlin' Betties defeated the West Coast Derby Knockouts 184-40
They’re baaaaack! Yep, it’s roller derby season once again, and Santa Barbara’s own Brawlin’ Betties will chew up and spit out their first opponent — the Inland Empire Derby Divas — this weekend. According to their website, “Every Brawlin' Bettie is an athlete, a pin-up girl, a rocker, and a brute rolled into one badass derby girl.” Watch these Betties roller skate round the rink, wreaking havoc. Gates open at 4:30 p.m., and the game starts at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, at Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real. Those with presale tickets (available at Palmieri’s, 1431 San Andres St.) can get in at 4 p.m. For more information, visit brawlinbetties.com.
