SARTELL - The rough and tumble sport of roller derby is making a comeback.  A group of local ladies are members of the St. Cloud Area Roller Dolls, one of about 12 teams in Minnesota.

Team member "Doctor Boom" says they have about 30 women signed-up, from all walks of life.

If you haven't been to a roller derby bout since say the 1970's, team member "Aries A. Fliktion" says there are a few rules to keep in mind.

The team started in October of last year.  They've played a couple of road bouts -- one on the Iron Range and one in Mason City, Iowa.  They'll host their first official home bout this coming March at Bernick's Arena in Sartell.

They are always looking for more skaters.

"Aries A. Fliktion" says they have an open skate night for interested women this Thursday at 6:00 p.m. at the Skatin Place.  She says the team practices twice a week.
