WFTDA Playoffs 2013
November 8-10 – Milwaukee, WI
The 2013 WFTDA Playoffs may be done, but that doesn’t bring and end to Rat City’s season! The All-Stars defeated the Detroit Derby Girls in Salem, OR, to grab a third place finish, and earn a trip to the 2013 WFTDA Championship Tournament! This will be Rat City’s first trip to the WFTDA championships since the Hydra was first awarded at the 2008 Northwest Knockdown tournament. The 2013 WFTDA Championships will be November 8-10, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, hosted by the Brewcity Bruisers.
Rat City’s third place finish puts them up against the second place finisher from another of the playoff tournaments. WFTDA’s draw will put them up against the Ohio Roller Girls, the second place finisher from the first of the WFTDA Playoff weekends. The winner of the game go on to face last year’s champions, the Gotham Girls Roller Derby All-Stars, who came to KeyArena just this last August, coming away with a win.
While there’s surely nothing like being there to see the action in person, all of this year’s WFTDA Tournament action is available streaming on WFTDA.tv! And keep an eye open for Rat City-hosted viewing parties on tournament weekend!
We Need Your Support:
Sending 20 athletes across the country for a three day tournament is expensive! Being 100% Member owned and operated means that we pay to play – fundraising will help offset the cost to our athletes. In addition to helping some fantastic women and incredible athletes fulfill their hard-earned dreams of being Champions we’re offering some pretty awesome perks as part if the campaign, including:
- Limited edition T-Shirt so everyone will know you helped RCRG on their Hunt for the Hydra!
- VIP Status at our Champs viewing party!
- A Special Post – Champs celebration with our All-Stars!
We can’t pony up $2500 by ourselves so why should we expect you? Tell your friends! Get matching shirts! Invite them join you at the viewing party! Many hands (or wallets) make light work!
Over the entirety of the Championship weekend, Rat City will be hosting a viewing party and garage sale at our new facility in Shoreline, The Rat’s Nest!
