Roller Derby Teams Wants Ordinance Changed
The Gainesville Roller Rebels are hoping to change the current city ordinance on alcohol consumption and sales. The Roller Rebels partnered with the City of Gainesville at the Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center in hopes of boosting their financial independence.
The team met with the public safety committee to discuss the sale of alcohol during their bouts. Beer sales make up one third of the teams revenue, but alcohol consumption and sale is currently prohibited at the MLK Center.
The team says the inability to sell beer at bouts lowers the amount of proceeds the team can earn to fund their costs. The Roller Rebels will have their first bout at the MLK Center on Saturday, October 19th at 9 p.m.
