In case you missed it Squamish Womens Roller Derby played our Penticton Pistoleras Roller Derby on June 18th!! Thanks to Shaw TV Okanagan for filming it and now for your viewing pleasure on you tube!!

Same great time, same great derby!

Join the Penticton Pistoleras as they take on the Sea to Sky Sirens from Squamish, in this, their last home bout of the season.

We have a great food vendor returning to nourish the hungry mouths at the bout, Yaki’s Pizza and Subs out of Summerland. Not only are they providing us with some great food, they are also a ticket location leading up to the bout. Check them out on Jubilee Road in Summerland.

And what’s great food without great drink? Thanks again Bad Tattoo for supporting the derby girls with your delicious beverages. And to all the fans who have supported us by buying tickets for the Bad Tattoo raffle – the winner will be announced at half time! We’d love to see you accept your price in person, though you aren’t required to be there to receive it.

Stay safe behind the ‘suicide seating’ and you’ll be at the best spot for all the action. Not only will you have a great view of the hard-hitting derby girls, you’ll also be in prime seating for checking out the merchandise table, where we’ll be selling lots of Pistoleras swag including tank tops, trucker hats, buttons and tattoos. We’ll have a snack table set up with candies, chips, and sodas, and be on the look out for one of our lovely Pistoleras selling 50/50 tickets. Proceeds from the 50/50 draw are being donated to our chosen charity this season, OSNS Child & Youth Development Center.

Derby is incredibly fun and challenging and we encourage everyone to come out and show us your support. And if you’re interested in knowing more just ask any of the Pistoleras who are working at the door, the merch table, the refreshment tables, or the 50/50. We love sharing our enthusiasm!

Penticton Pistoleras Home Bout

Penticton Pistoleras Victorious Over The Black Diamond Betties In Roller Derby Action Saturday Night at The Penticton Curling Club!

The Penticton Pistoleras took the win in front of a sold out crowd against the Black Diamond Betties of Whistler with a final score of 191-115.

An exciting evening of thrills and spills, May Day Massacre at the Penticton Curling Club was a huge success. The Black Diamond Betties are a strong team that served up some hard hits and powerhouse jamming giving The Pistoleras a serious challenge. The Betties started off the bout with a bang and took the lead. The Pistoleras responded to the pressure with tight walls and solid teamwork from the blockers. Pistoleras jammer Crasher In The Thigh blasted through the pack and forced the lead change towards the end of the first period. The home team kept that lead throughout the remainder of the bout coming out with the win.

The Penticton Pistoleras welcomed four new players to the roster this bout: Crasher In The Thigh, Red Mewes, Billy The Skid and Stella RydHer. The Pistoleras would like to give a special thanks to the Black Diamond Betties for travelling all the way from Whistler, helping us put on a great night of derby. Big thank you to all the fans who cheered us on all night, our wonderful sponsors, the ref’s and NSO’s, volunteers and anyone else we missed.
