Charlotte Mayor Patsy Kinsey will be on hand to blow the first whistle to kick off the Charlotte Roller Girls last double header of the season this Saturday, August 24.
The CLTRG All Stars returned victorious after taking on Team Hulagans of Pacific Roller Derby in Oahu, Hawaii on August 10. The final score of 276 to 63 set the stage for the All Stars to return state-side and take on the Gate City Roller Girls of Greensboro, NC.
CLTRG B-Dazzlers will also play Saturday against the WFTDA ranked team Classic City of Athens, GA. WFTDA, or Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby, is like the NBA of basketball — it’s the organization that tracks wins and losses in order to create a ranking system throughout the world for its sanctioned teams.
Singer and songwriter Colby Bell, a regular performer at Panthers, Bobcats and Checkers games, will sing our nation’s anthem. DJ Spider takes a break from spinning around the US to keep CLTRG fans pumped throughout the action.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the All Stars play the first game at 6 p.m. with a half time show by musical performer Funky Geezer before the B-Dazzlers take the track. For those who get to Grady Cole Center early, there will be tailgating from 3:30pm – doors opening where you can meet other derby fans, friends and some of the skaters.
