Great Falls' very own roller derby team - the Electric City Roller Grrrlz - are ready to take on the Gallatin Roller Girlz of Bozeman.
Derby girls "Lucky Chuck" and "Vixenous V-Lo" stopped by Montana This Morning on Tuesday to talk with Art Taft about the event.
The bout will be held on Saturday, September 8, at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls.
Doors open at 6 pm and the bout starts at 7 pm.
The game itself is simple. Two athletes - called jammers - start in the back of the pack and try to work their way past the opposing teams blockers to score points - and that is where roller derby's crowd-pleasing action occurs.
Tickets are $10 and available at Barrel O' Bucks Casino (527 Central Avenue West), Diggs hair salon (41 Division Road) or online at BrownPaperTickets.com.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cascade County.
