Win tickets to NoTown Roller Derby


UPDATE: Congrats to our winners — Matt H. and Monica. Enjoy this Frestastic event! Thanks to everyone else for the great names. It was a hoot reading ‘em.

ORIGINAL POST: We’ve been introducing you to NoTown Roller Derby members to lead up to its FresYES Fest on Saturday — where the ladies will split up into three Fresno-themed teams (The Shaw Shankers, The Fulton Maulers and The Huntington Blvd. Harlots) and battle it out.

We’re also getting a couple readers in to see some hard-hitting derby action FREE.

Just leave a comment below telling us what YOUR roller derby name would be. The NoTown gals have names like Betty Rocker, Suzy Sweetknuckles, Karma Kaze and Darth Brawl. So get creative.

Deadline to enter is 3 p.m. Friday. We’ll pick two winners at random and notify them by e-mail, so leave a real one and check it. No repeat comments please. You’re ineligible if you’ve won something in the past 30 days. Complete rules are on the jump.

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. Two winners will be picked at random. To be eligible, a commenter must not have won a prize on in the previous 30 days. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use. Employees and immediate family of The Fresno Bee, and any/all of the participating giveaway sponsors, are not eligible to win. By accepting a giveaway, recipient consents to allow the use of his/her name and/or photograph for advertising or similar promotions without further compensation. Winner releases all sponsors of liability regarding use and enjoyment of the prizes. Tax liabilities and insurance, if any, are sole responsibility of the winner. No purchase necessary to win.
