The Lowcountry Highrollers invite everyone down for their final bout of the season -- the state championships -- on Sunday, November 13th at The Citadel's McAlister Field House.

The Black Eye Affair will pit South Carolina's roller derby elite against one another for a full day of bouts. Doors open at 12 p.m., and first whistle is at 1 p.m. Columbia Quad Squad, Greenville Derby Dames, Palmetto State Roller Girls, Richland County Regulators, U.R.G.E. and the Highroller All Stars, battle it out in eight mini-bouts until only one team remains.

Besides the obvious derby entertainment, there will be beer, music and fun for the kids all day, including exotic birds, a fortune-teller and an arts and crafts area. Keep partying afterward with all the derby girls at the Music Farm.

Bout admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Children 10 and younger get in free. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Lowcountry Food Bank. Get $1 off bout admission by donating a non-perishable food item.
