     BRYSON CITY – The Smoky Mountain Roller Girls, one of western North Carolina’s newest and fiercest all‐female roller derby leagues, will host its highly anticipated debut competition Saturday, March 17 at the Swain County Indoor Recreation Center in the Deep Creek area of Bryson City.  Admission is $5 donation or five non-perishable food items.  An after-party is scheduled at the Tuckasegee Tavern on 47 Depot St. in Bryson City. 

     All ages are invited to join the Roller Girls for the St. Patty’s Day SLAMROCK event, which will act as a fundraiser for the Bryson City Food Pantry.

     If the fast‐paced, raucous, full‐throttle spectacle of derby is not enough, the event will also feature live music with Avelina, belly dancers, half time entertainment with comedy magician Kyle Jarrard, face painting, concessions, and lots of raffles and door prizes. Child and grandma friendly, SLAMROCK promises exceptional entertainment for the masses! After the event, plan on rolling over to the Tuckasegee Tavern for the SMRG after‐party.
