The Charm City Roller Girls All Stars to Compete in Atlanta at the WFTDA ChampionshipsPosted: 10/09/2012
On Friday, November 2, The CCRG All Stars will travel to Atlanta, GA, for the 2012 Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Championships held at the Georgia World Congress Center. This is the sixth year of the three-day tournament which takes the three top-ranked teams from the association’s four regions -- North Central, South Central, East, and West --and pits them against each other in a single-elimination competition. Charm City goes into the contest ranked third in the East region, marking Charm’s third consecutive Championship appearance.
The first day of play features four matchups, including the 2:00 p.m. opening bout between Charm and the Denver Roller Dolls (WFTDA West #2). If the All Stars defeat Denver, they will advance to Saturday’s semi-finals against Windy City (WFTDA NC #1), a team Charm narrowly thwarted earlier this year.
The WFTDA Championships was created so that skaters from around the world would have an opportunity to compete against the best of the best. The 12 participating leagues are fighting for the Hydra trophy and a chance to be named the number one women’s flat track roller derby team in the world.
