Women’s roller derby skaters thrive on competition —it’s no accident a popular bumper sticker among skaters proclaims: “I Hit Girls.”
On Saturday, Feb. 4, the battle goes from the rink to the kitchen, with a chili cook-off involving members of the Lake Effect Furies, the all-star travel team of Buffalo’s Queen City Roller Girls.
Carolyn Storms, a Brockport State College sociology professor who skates as “Stormie Weather,” says the chili smack is already being slung. “There’s already under-the- table bets taking place,” she said.
Will an all-organic or vegan chili have an edge in one of the awards categories? “Everyone is trying to figure out what everyone else is doing, what their secret chili angle is going to be,” Storms said. “It’s exciting.”
Get in on the chili action from 6 to 10 p.m. at Appliance Associates of Buffalo (200 Amherst St.). For $5 at the door, people can taste 12 chili competitors’ work —and even sample some Flying Bison beer ($2 for more). Proceeds aid the travel team’s efforts to compete nationally in Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association (WFTDA) sanctioned bouts.
