Event will take place March 18

A familiar sport will be coming to Taft Sunday, March 18 when the Unforgiven Roller Girls put on a black and white roller derby scrimmage.

The event will take place at 823 Fourth Street. This will be the first of many times they will be hosting a scrimmage or bout in Taft according to Reena Tovar. Few of the girls that live around the Taft area are on the team.

Flat track roller derby is a fast paced contact team sport that requires speed, strategy and athleticism.

The event costs $5 for all ages except for those five and under who get in for free. Bring your own chairs. The cost for a skater to take part is $10. Skaters must bring a black shirt and a white shirt with a number. There will be a division for women's, men's and coed.

Gates open at 3 p.m., with the action beginning at 3:30 p.m.
