On Saturday August 20, 2011 the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls are hosting a double header event. This promises to be a spectacular evening filled with thrills, chills and body slamming power skating like you’ve never seen before.

This monumental event will be held at LVRG’s home arena, the Independence Family Fun Center located in the fabulous industrial quarter of Schnecksville, PA. Plenty of parking and with a pharmacy and beer distributor close by; this venue is unparalleled in its convenience.

First up on bout day, Skyland Rollergirls based out of New Jersey will be battling River City’s Uncivil Warriors.  The action doesn’t end there; immediately following the first match Lehigh Valley’s own Hissy Fits hit the track to bout against River City’s Poe’s Punishers from Richmond, VA. Both bouts will be full 60 minute matches. That’s two full hours of adrenaline pumping action.

Halftime entertainment will be provided by Beyond Eden a local, female-fronted rock band. Beyond Eden performs regularly at venues throughout the Lehigh Valley as well as the surrounding areas including NYC.
