Since I've become the announcer for the brand-new Brandywine Roller Girls roller derby team, I'm putting the Guerilla Drive-In on hiatus for 2012.
But that's not necessarily bad news: if you like the GDI, you'll love modern roller derby. It's fast-paced, athletic, cheerful, and irreverent.
There's loud music, corny names, and silly clothes, but unlike the staged derby of the 70s and 80s, modern roller derby is a real amateur sport now, with rules and referees and actual sporting competition going on. You can come out and watch (and see me announcing as "Thurston Howl III"), the third Saturday of every month. Check out some videos of the Brandywine Roller Girls in action, then get your tickets!

West Chester Guerilla Drive-In dates are announced in advance, but you have to be on the members list to find out what will be shown, and where. To get on the list, you must find the MacGuffin!
