FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Confluence Crush Roller Derby Names Belle Clair Fairgrounds as It’s New Home
Belleville, IL – Confluence Crush Roller Derby is proud to announce today that it has selected Belle Clair Fairgrounds and Expo Center in Belleville, Illinois as its new home venue for the 2014 season. Confluence Crush played the first two seasons at the Gateway Center in Collinsville. The move will also mean a change from Sunday matinees to Saturday nights.
“Skating at Belle Clair will put us in the backyard of thousands of current and potential fans, including those at Scott Air Force Base located just down the road,” said league President Amy Whited. “Belle Clair is well known in the area as a destination for interesting events, and we feel it’s a great fit for women’s flat track roller derby.”
Confluence Crush will kick off its 2014 home season on Saturday, January 25th. Additional dates include March 29, May 10 and August 2. Opponents and door times will be announced soon.
In the meantime, the Crush has one more bout scheduled as part of its 2013 season, when they will visit the Southern Illinois Roller Girls in Marion, Illinois on September 7. Between seasons the Crush plans a series of demos at area rinks, with dates and locations announced soon on the league’s website and Facebook page. The women are also recruiting new skaters on September 19 to begin training for the 2014 season. More information about becoming a skater with Confluence Crush can be found at http://www.confluencecrush.com.
