The Revelstoke Derailers played for another massive crowd on the 21st of July, against the Penticton Pistoleras. It was a rematch from the beginning of the season where the score of the first game for the Derailers was a heartbreakingly close loss- 189-156.
This win has bumped Derailers up in the statistics quite a few points.

Coach Lime and Ms.Commanda together proved to be a great combination to bring the team to a place where on the bench there is order and support. We thank them both for keeping us all in the game!
Thank you to the sponsors, fans, and volunteers for supporting derby! It’s been a great home season. We will be giving back to the community some of the support you’ve given us in the form of a couple donations to charities around town. Watch in the upcoming week for this.
We are now looking for a practise space of 90×60 feet square to continue practicing through the winter. We have recently confirmed a bout in Kelowna against the Derby Dolls on August 18th and would love to see some of our loyal fans come cheer us on!
