SK8FEST DERBY BOUT is TONIGHT! (Saturday)



So...WHAT IS SK8FEST? 
SK8FEST marks the beginning of the new derby season for the Rated PG Rollergirls and our Officials crew. 
SK8FEST is also an invitational bout so that means that we invite skaters and officials from all over to come to Prince George to take part in a full day of derby. First they'll attend clinics and bootcamps, then have a short break until... GAME TIME! Then of course, there's the after party. This year we've got skaters and officials coming from all over B.C. and Alberta 
to join your local rollergirls and refs bring in the new year...of derby! 

MORE: Rated PG started holding the SK8FEST bout 5 years ago as a way to support our own growing league and other skaters in the area. We wanted to be able to show our sisterly love for all those derby girls in small towns whose leagues weren't big enough to fill a roster, travel, or play much derby at all. We thank our lucky stars that we've got such a supporting fan and friend in Al from the PG Dome. 
Rated PG is unique in that we have a skating surface that is open all year round. Most other leagues (including Terminal City in Vancouver) have to cater their derby season to times when the ice is off the rinks. This is sadly the situation faced by most other derby teams in Northern B.C.. We are elated to be able to host the SK8FEST skaters and officials here in P.G. and give them a fun time just as their own beloved skating surfaces disappear under a thick veneer of solid ice until spring. 

SK8FEST NSO Clinic -Learn to derby the painless way!-

This year SK8FEST is bigger than ever! We've added a second game, 
so that means you'll see twice the derby! 
We're doing the same bootcamp for the skaters and Referees. 
New to this year's SK8FEST is a Non-Skating Official Clinic. 

Don't miss a single BIG HIT! Tickets are $10 
at Handsome Cabin Boy Tattoo and Books & Company. 

If you are interested getting involved with derby but don't know where to start, 
TRY OFFICIATING! 

It's an easy way to get near the action without all the bruises (sorry, no guarantees!)
Join Panax and Sweet T in the Non-Skating Official (NSO) Clinic.

You will learn to handle things like scorekeeping, timing penalties and recording penalties.
