Roller Derby!~Fort Myers Derby Girls


Are you ready Fort Myers? Roller Derby season is BACK!

Have you missed us? You’re in luck! The 2013 Season is quickly approaching with our home Season opener Sunday, March 17th. The two mixed-roster home teams featuring all of your favorite veteran Ft. Myers Derby Girls and quite a few new faces. The Betty Fords and The Edison Homewreckers will go head to head for a good cause. Donations will be collected for both the National Alliance on Mental Illness and the Destiny Diaper Bank. NAMI could use: 1" and 1 " white binders, markers, chalk, clay, sandwich bags, cinnamon sticks, raisins, pens, dry erase board/pens, and copy paper. The Destiny Diaper Bank is in need of infant diapers, wipes, clothing for moms, and adult diapers. This is guaranteed to be the best Sunday night out for all ages and is family friendly. Donors will receive a raffle ticket to be entered in to a drawing to win an awesome FMDG swag pack including tickets to April's double header bout and other FMDG goodies!

    Please Everyone that is attending if you plan on sitting with us I suggest you get there NO LATER than 5:30 and have your tickets on will call or if you can pick them up at the stadium before Sunday otherwise we may not be able to save enough spaces for you :(
    As you can see we have a good response early and that means all the other fans will be there early too.
    Don't forget your chairs unless you want to sit on the hard fiberglass ones they have there.
    See You all there on Sunday Yea!
