CUPID STRIKES BACK with the BLOODFIN GARRISON
Once again the Naptown Roller Girls are bringing the action to the center of the circle city and get the honor of being the first to use the brand new Indianapolis Convention Center! Don't get left out in the cold and head to The Fairgrounds as usual. Especially when the action on the track will be heating up! The last time these two teams met was at North Central Playoffs where the Sirens dominated the bout and won by 49 points. Arch Rival are ready to show the NC region they are back, with the injuries behind them, while Naptown has been burdened with injury lately. Don't expect Coach J to let you down. Naptown is ready to prove their talent is in the whole team, not just one or two players. Expect another incredible bout on the flat track! Plus, did you know Indy has a male derby team? Thatís right, merby has made it's way to Indy! Be sure to arrive downtown early to catch the opening bout between Race City Rebels and St. Louis Gate Keepers! With bout and after-party music provided by A-Squared Industries!

That's right troops. NRG is back for another Star Wars themed night of heart pounding roller girl action. This year theme is Cupid Strikes Back. The local Bloodfin Garrison of the 501st and Mos Espa Base of the Rebel Legion came to provide support to our favorite roller girls. With all the mingling and photo-ops that all the costumed characters had I have to say the pride and joy of all was the newest edition to the group, the Ewok. There was a tremendous amount of work that went into the creation of the Ewok and I must say it was well worth it. 

Besides from all the Star Wars characters running around with the fans there were many vendors and sponsors on hand to show off some of their goods and services. Amongst them of course was the merchandise area and this years t-shirt I must say is phenomenal. 

The final score - Naptown Sirens 152 -vs- Arch Rival All Stars 105

Overall it was as usual a rolling good time for everyone who attended this event. Until next years Star Wars themed Naptown Roller Girls event keep your wheels turning.
