TCDG On the Road!

The home season is now underway, but your favorite local roller derby team has also been busy on the road!

TCDG's two travel teams play year-round on the road (with brief breaks in the summer and winter), and we have lots of news from those bouts to report!

The WFTDA competitive season runs from roughly January through June, with playoffs in the late summer and early fall. TCDG is setting their sights on making their first appearance in the international Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) tournament play this year -- so keep a close eye on those rankings until the end of June! All bouts played after July 1 of the previous year are counted in the seeding, with teams ranked 41-60 invited to the tournaments. TCDG is currently ranked #77 in WFTDA.

Here's where TCDG stacks up in sanctioned play since last July:

July 7 - TCDG 247 vs. St. Chux 124 (closed, home)
August 10 - TCDG 262 vs. Old Capitol City Roller Girls 133 (away)
August 24 - TCDG 335 vs. Black n Bluegrass 75 (home)
September 21 - TCDG 148 vs. Demolition City Roller Derby 136 (home)
December 7 - TCDG 159 vs. Des Moines 151
March 29 - TCDG 92 vs. St. Chux 208

This past weekend, the Travelers played three sanctioned bouts at the Skate to Thrill tournament in Wright City, Missouri.  Up against three tough teams, TCDG brought back two wins, losing only to the 64th-ranked Brewcity Bruisers on Sunday.

April 12 - TCDG 162 vs. North Star 122
April 12 - TCDG 202 vs. Fargo 168
April 13 - TCDG 114 vs. Brewcity 184

The next bout for the Travelers will be a doubleheader against the Chicago Outfit on April 26 for their home opener at the Windy City Fieldhouse.

Home Bout #3: May 4

The Twin City Derby Girls are hoping to secure a win in their third home bout on May 4, against the visiting Fleur De Linquents from Arch Rival Roller Girls in St. Louis.  Tickets available through TicketLeap or at the door.  Skateland doors open at 6pm, and the bout starts at 7.
