Well, we're down to one before the one. The Twin City Derby Girls home team regular season concludes June 9 with two teams battling for the one remaining slot in the championship three weeks later.
Both sitting on one win opposite a pair of losses, The 'Paign and the Boneyard Bombshells skate off for the second time this season in an open bout at Skateland in Savoy. In a closed bout to kickstart the 2013 campaign, The 'Paign pulled out the victory in the final two jams, pushing the combined point total over 400 points.
In the last closed bout May 30, the Bombshells knocked off the Damagin' Dames 216-165, to set up the one-and-done scenario Sunday to see who gives the 3-1 Dames another go in the finale. You won't want to miss this.
And you won't want to stand in line for your $8 tickets, so order them online here. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Bout starts at 7:00 p.m. We can't wait to see you there and who advances.

Champaign, IL –Each season the Twin City Derby Girls invite local organizations to submit applications to partner with the league as part of our Community Involvement Program.
The Twin City Derby Girls are proud to name Habitat for Humanity as their 2013 Season Charity Partner.
The league looks forward to partnering with Habitat for Humanity in late spring as part of the Women’s Build Week in which the derby girls will join forces with other volunteers from the community to help construct a home for a CU family. The partnership will align two wonderful organizations in their efforts toward empowerment and giving back to their communities.
The mission of the Twin City Derby Girls is to promote roller derby in the Champaign-Urbana community by fostering athleticism, empowerment and sportsmanship among all of our members and supporters, especially women and girls, while benefiting local non-profit organizations through our charitable donations and service.
If you're interested in getting involved with the Habitat build, please visit http://cuhabitat.org to sign up for a free workshop and to volunteer for the May 4th Women's Build kickoff!
We look forward to meeting you and having you share your coaching and teaching expertise.
