Are you a derby enthusiast? Are you within the tri-state area? Then you would be a fool to miss this year's East Coast Derby Extravaganza, hosted by the Philly Roller Girls and The Sportsplex. Founded in 2007 by Philly Roller Girls, the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX) is a large-scale women's flat track roller derby event featuring teams from across the US and Canada. This year's event will have an insane 1000+ skaters and 90+ leagues tearing up the floors of three separate rinks - all in one philthy weekend. The mayhem will take place June 24-26, 2011 at the Sportsplex in Feasterville, PA.
Tickets are available in singe-bout, single-day or full-weekend passes. If you choose to stay at a hotel near the Sportplex (the event site has some suggestions), it might be a good idea to buy the ECDX bus pass along with your tickets; the buses will be making loops to and from the Sportsplex on Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to just after the conclusion of the final bout. There's even an after party at North Bowl, a Philly 'lounge 'n lanes'. For more information on transportation and the after party, click here.
