Half-time entertainment: Full Contact Musical Chairs!
*Masks and vaccines are HIGHLY recommended for this event!*


  • General Admission: $20

BRRD recommends advance purchase of tickets to guarantee entrance.

**Please do not bring any kind of nuts to the event, as we have a skater with a severe allergy!**


Each year, we select a local charity to support through a portion of the proceeds from this bout. The charity selected will be receiving the monies collected from our guest captain auctions, raffles, and the proceeds from our ticket sales. They will also be in-house for the bout for anyone wanting to donate further or gather more information on the organization.


This year, our Black & Blue 15 charity partner is the Colors+ Youth Center!
Colors+Youth Center is a nonprofit LGBTQ+ youth center located in Northeast Ohio. Their mission is to build a healthy youth community using a holistic mind and body approach and to create a safe space to empower LGBTQ+ youth to grow as individuals and within their community.

  • Please arrive early if you require a seat in lieu of sitting trackside.
