Tri-City Roller Derby thanks the many fans and volunteers who helped make the first WFTDA Playoff Tournament held outside the USA a resounding success. Without the support of local leagues, derby fans from far and wide, and of course our beloved Tri-Hards, this historic occasion would not have been as momentous as it was.
After a weekend packed with hard-fought contests and some of the closest bouts in WFTDA history, the Rideau Valley Vixens took the victory over the Berlin Bombshells in the championship game, with the Killamazoo Derby Darlins grabbing third place in a victory against Gold Coast. Analysis by our good friend The Derby Nerd can be found here, and game recaps from WFTDA are here. Relive the excitement by watching the archives over at WFTDA.tv!
What’s next for TCRD? Glad you asked! We need your support at our next bout, happening September 14 at Moses Springer Arena. Two mixed-roster teams of TCRD skaters (folks tend to call them the Total Vicious Tramps) square off against the Death Track Dolls and Smoke City Betties of Toronto Roller Derby. Proceeds will go towards Thunder’s playoff appearance at Salt Lake City. Want to help Thunder get to Utah? They’re on GoFundMe.
Special guests Stratford Junior Roller Derby will skate as well – these youngsters are amazing!
