....so here's today's newsletter!
First of all, a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported Big Easy by cheering on the Crescent Wenches and StoryVillains this past weekend! We all had a blast and hope you did, too! Check out pictures from the bout by Scott Stuntz.
Our next home bout is Saturday, December 13, 2008 with more details to come. Mark your calendars for a fun-filled evening at UNO's HUman Performance Center! If you can't wait until then, cheer on the Big Easy All-Stars travel team November 23, 2008 in San Antonio, TX during their first All-Star bout against the Alamo City Rollergirls! Check out their website for more information.
BERG has some BIG events going on this weekend! Come see us roll in the Fringe Festival parade! It starts this Saturday, November 15 at 10 a.m. from Poland Avenue to Elysian Fields along St. Claude. Get there early to secure a great spot. Check out the Gambit's review of the fest online. The full Fringe schedule can be seen and downloaded from the Fringe website. We've also got more information about BERG's participation on our blog.
If you're still looking for something fun to do this weekend, check out the New Orleans Bookfair this Saturday!
We're also participating in a benefit for Second Harvest on November 21, 2008 called "Food Rocks." The benefit is being held at Keystones (3408 28th St. in Metairie) and will have entertainment including The Hitleristic Darwinists, The Converts, Westbank Krewe, D-Kennedy, YGG, Trevelyan . The shindig starts at 8 p.m. and if you bring a canned good or a non-perishable food item you get in FREE! All donations collected will be donated to Second Harvest on Monday, November 24th - right before Thanksgiving to help local families in need during the holidays.
As always, you can see your favorite derby girls anytime you want by getting yourself (and a friend) a 2009 Big Easy Rollergirls' pin-up calendar! They make excellent holiday gifts - give the gift of derby this season! See 12 months of the hottest derby girls and refs. Get yours from our online store or at bouts and other BERG events including the Freret Market, the Second Harvest benefit and this weekend's Fringe Festival!
Come out and hang with the rollergirls!
