The 2015 Roller Derby season is winding down in Regina. The last bout of the year will happen at the Callie Curling Club on the Labour Day weekend (Sept. 5, to be exact). Before that happens, though, there’s a bout on Saturday, Aug. 8. The bout is titled Regina vs. Rocanville, so it would seem that a team will be coming to the city from the town of Rocanville — which is located near the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border, and is apparently home to the largest oil can in the world.
As with the other bouts held during the season, there’s a junior bout at 4:30 p.m., and the headline bout goes at 7:30 p.m. The Callie is located at 2225 Sandra Schmirler Way near the airport, and tickets are $12 advance and $15 door, with children 10 and under admitted free.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
