Appalachian Rollergirls is proud to partner with Canyons Historic Restaurant and Bar in Blowing Rock for our first fundraiser for the 2017 bout season. Monday February 6th, Canyons will donate a portion of your meal to ARG. We will also be there, hanging out and enjoying the great food ourselves. If you want a chance to get to meet some of the fiercest women in the high country when they aren’t on their skates, this is your opportunity. In addition to great food and a chance to rub elbows with your favorite ARG skater, there will also be merchandise for sale. This is the time to pick up a great new shirt, support a local non-profit, and have great food all at once. We hope to see you there!
