Charlotte Roller Girls Announce 2011 Home Season Begins on March 6!
Charlotte Roller Girls (CLTRG) proudly announce our 2011 home season that will feature 6 home bouts, including three doubleheaders featuring CLTRG All-Stars and BDazzlers. Home bouts will begin Sunday, March 6 and run through Saturday, September 24!
The Charlotte Roller Girls have two interleague teams, the All-Stars and B Dazzlers. The All-Stars, who have competed in every interleague home bout since 2008, are made up of the league’s most veteran players . The league’s developing skaters comprise the B Dazzlers.
“We are thrilled to announce our fourth home season,” said Charlotte Roller Girls president Linda Sewell (BoToxic Bruz'her). “After playing so many away bouts the last few months before the holidays, we can't wait to get back in front our dedicated Charlotte fans at the Grady Cole Center in March! If you have not yet checked out a Charlotte Roller Girls bout, you’re missing out on one of the most thrilling sporting events in town."
On March 6, the Charlotte Roller Girls’ home season kicks off when its All-Stars battle the Savannah Derby Devils. These 2 teams met last three long years ago, when Charlotte delivered a nail-biter win in overtime!
The first home doubleheader on May 7 will feature a clash between Charlotte, NC and Charleston, SC. The B Dazzlers will open the night playing against Lowcountry High Rollers (LCHR) Bruisin' Betties followed by the CLTRG All-Stars versus LCHR All-Stars.
On June 11, Charlotte All-Stars and B Dazzler will host another doubleheader for the visiting Greenville Derby Dames All-Stars and Bad News Babes, respectively.
Saturday, July 23, will be a treat as both Charlotte teams play new opponents for the first time. The B Dazzlers will host the Appalachian Roller Girls in the first bout. Then, Charlotte All-Stars will compete with the All-Stars from the Carolina Rollergirls, a Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) team from Raleigh currently ranked sixth in the East Region. Fans may remember last year's home opener with our All-Stars beating the Carolina Bootleggers. This year's match should prove to be even more exciting!
In our end of summer home bout on August 13, the All-Stars will host Gainesville Roller Rebels for another first time competition.
The season finale will feature our All-Stars hosting our long-time rivals Cape Fear Roller Girls All-Stars on September 24. Charlotte has played Cape Fear every year since 2008, and every time delivers an unforgettable night for seasoned and new derby fans!
