Hellz Jezebel Memorial Result // Flat Track Fever Info // E-Waste Roundup

Hey Derby Fans:

Around a month ago, Gas City took part in the Hellz Jezebel Memorial Tournament in Lethbridge. It was a long weekend for the girls in green, so let's start from the beginning.

Gas City's first game was up against the Rocky View Rebelles from Airdrie. It was a hard fought match, but Gas City came away with the 203-134 victory.

Their second game was up against Indus' East Side Wheelers. The game was less of a challenge as they took the match easily to the tune of 199-130.

They were off to the second day of action. After they had their night of sleep, they were ready to fight for the title. Their first bout was a rematch versus the Rebelles. There was an unfortunate injury to Rebelles player Friggen Diggens, and due to that, the Rocky View Rebelles forfeited their match against Gas City. They were leading 87-46 at the time of the injury.

And then there were two teams: The Redneck Betties from Swift Current, SK have paved their way to the finals by first defeating the host Deathbridge Derby Dames and East Side Wheelers to get to the coveted position to taking the title. They have shown how tough they were throughout the tournament in the final match. They were hitting hard, and we hit hard as well in this physical chess match. The game was very tight, but Gas City pulled away and Won the Championship by a score of 184-157.

Huge thanks to the Dames for hosting a wonderful tournament and to the City of Lethbridge for its hospitality. Thanks to the Refs, NSO's, volunteers, and of course the teams that made the tournament a great success.

Flat Track Fever

However, Gas City withdrew themselves from Flat Track Fever over a roster issue. Gas City would like to congratulate the Rated PG Northstars from Prince George, BC, for winning the Calgary tournament.

E-Waste Roundup

The Gas City Rollers, Regulators, and Pilot Lights took part in the E-Waste Roundup May 7 at the Stampede Grounds. All the girls worked hard taking all of your electronics and getting it all recycled. Plus, we had some fun doing it as well.

COMING UP>>

Though the Gas City Rollers had their finale at Hellz, the Regulators have one game to go as they take on the Deathbridge Derby Dames in Lethbridge's Exhibition Park. The game will be on June 11th and the first whistle will be at 7:00 PM. If you're feeling like taking the pilgrimage over to Lethbridge for the match, we would love to have a cheering section.

The Gas City Rollers will be taking part in their AGM where we will elect new members of our board and talk about key issues for the club. I know it's all boring board stuff, but it has to be done to deliver you great Gas City Roller Derby action.
