The grand gong of Liberty won’t be the only bell ringing when Pioneer Valley Roller Derby heads to the City of Brotherly Love for the 2011 East Coast Derby Extravaganza, June 24-26.

The annual event, hosted by the Philly Roller Girls, pits Western Mass Destruction against Charm City Female Trouble and the Dirty Dozen against the New York Shock Exchange.

Fans will also be able to see PVRD skaters in a host of Extravaganza-only challenge teams: Cyborgs vs. Humans, Bakers vs. Crafters, Cougars vs. Kittens, Gingers vs. The World, Surf Ninjas vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to name a few.

Find more information, including schedules, pricing, and transportation details, on the ECDX website.
