What the hell is up with this? First the news is that the Derby Girls are back in business at the Dry Ice Hockey rink. Now word is the venu is not up to code after all to accomodate all the fans and bouts are cancelled until the required building improvements are complete. (Mudwrestling on June 27 is still on, though.) Okay, read it and weep for yourself:

It is with heavy hearts that the Bay Area Derby Girls announce the cancellation of the June 14 bout between the (undefeated this season) Oakland Outlaws and the Richmond Wrecking Belles. 
Unfortunately, our venue, Dry Ice, is not up to code to accommodate all our wonderful fans. The leniency afforded us by the authorities the past two months has come to an end until required building improvements are complete.
We are working with Dry Ice management to bring the building up to code. At this time we expect to proceed with our July bout as scheduled.
Check back here for the latest information.
