ST. CLOUD - Nearly 900 fans are expected to come out to support the Special Olympics at the SCAR [St. Cloud Area Roller] Dolls home team playoffs this Saturday at Rivers Edge Convention Center.

The SCAR Dolls are made up of two separate teams the Gargoyle Brigade and the Prowlers each team will go head to head this Saturday. Rosie Ratsnest, captain of the Gargoyle Brigade says each season the crowd has been growing for each bout.

"We started out with around 100-300 people when we were out at Bernick's [Bernick's Arena], since we've moved to the civic center [River's Edge Convention Center] we've been seeing about 800-900 fans per bout." -Ratsnest

Each bout represents a different charity foundation. "Our charity for this bout will be the Special Olympics." Ratsnest says the SCAR Dolls have supported the Special Olympics in the past by doing the Polar Plunge.

The playoffs begin Saturday at 7:00 p.m. doors open at 6:00 p.m. Tickets can be bought in advance from Skatin' Place, The Youth Shelter Supply and Granite City Comics and Games for $8. Tickets are also available at the door for $12.
