Margarita Heroes!

Saturday, April 28th was the Eves of Destruction roller derby season opener pitting the Margarita Villains against the Anarchy Angels.  A sold out crowd at the Archie Browning Arena in Esquimalt was treated to an evening of fishnet stockings and hard hits on the oval track.  A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales were generously donated to BCSS Victoria.  To learn more about roller derby in Victoria, see the Eves of Destruction website at www.evesof destruction.com.
