BANGOR, Maine — Central Maine Derby, a Bangor area flat-track roller derby league, will be the first local sports team to play in the new Cross Insurance Center. The bout will be held Sunday, Sept. 22.
“We are very excited to be able to bout in the Cross Center,” said Shelby Fastback, skater for Central Maine Derby, in a Global Spectrum press release. “We were the last event in the former Bangor Auditorium, and it’s very exciting to be the first local sports team to play in the new Cross Center.”
Proceeds will benefit Central Maine Derby’s future programs and events, including championing the cause “Skate Don’t Hate,” which provides literature to schools and hosts in-school assemblies for local children, at which skaters speak about personal experiences and share the importance of tolerance.
