KAPOLEI—Ah, the good old days. Pacific Roller Derby pays homage to its original home teams in this throwback scrimmage fundraiser.

Non-military fans are required to RSVP at http://bit.ly/uN6Jyl by midnight on Friday, June 8, to gain access to U.S. Coast Guard Air Station for the afternoon event.

In 2008, Pacific Roller Derby (Pacific) brought back the excitement of roller derby back to Honolulu, Hawaii. The all female flat-track roller derby league has shown fans what it means to push one’s self to their highest potential and form a strong community around one of the world’s fastest growing female dominated sports. As members of this league we continue to keep the enthusiasm alive and spread the derby love. In 2009, Pacific became a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Pacific is currently ranked 24 out of 38 in the WFTDA international-based Western division. WFTDA promotes and fosters the sport of women’s flat-track derby by developing athletic ability, sportswomanship, and goodwill among member leagues. Pacific is excited to learn about local sponsorship opportunities and about local venues to call home for their on-skates events so they may continue to spread roller derby’s popularity around the island.
