Bryson City is the home of the Smoky Mountain Roller Girls, an all-female roller derby league. These ladies get together for fun, fitness and camaraderie. Roller derby takes athletic ability and fosters teamwork. But these girls don’t stop there, they volunteer time and donations to several charities at every home event. These events are sure to keep you entertained, but seats sell out fast! Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Check their website for how to purchase your tickets in ahead of time. The next event is a home bout benefiting Hawthorn Heights and Cherokee Children’s Home. Saturday, May 17th at the Swain County Rec Center. Doors open at 5pm. Don’t miss the action!
