Rough and Tumble Roller Derby Submitted: 09/29/2012
Eagle River - Earlier this summer, we told you about a new Roller Derby group in the area. Tonight the Northwoods Derby Knockouts hosted a mixer to give people the chance to check out the hard hitting action in person.

The ladies are well on their way to being official, but still in the training stages. So they invited skaters from other Wisconsin roller derby teams to show off their skills.

Close to 200 curious fans showed up to learn about the sport and were treated to a fun night of fast paced derby skating.

The Knockouts are still in dire need of a practice space in the Northwoods. They need a space of at least 60' x 40' that has a concrete or wood floor and can be in Rhinelander, Eagle River, Three Lakes or St. Germain.
