Windy City All-Stars to Take on the Tundra Tournament

Oh, it is on. It was announced today that local derby team, the Windy City Rollers All-Stars, is now the first-seeded team in the upcoming Thunda on the Tundra North Central Regional Tournament, which will be held Sept. 10-12 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. On Friday, Sept. 10, at 3:15 p.m., Windy City will play the winner of the opening bout between St. Louis and Indianapolis. The league who takes the tournament will be rolling on to compete in the 5th annual WFTDA Championship, Uproar on the Lakeshore, scheduled for Nov. 5-7 in Chicago.

Right now there are 24 WFTDA member leagues in the North Central Region (up from 19 leagues last year), including leagues in South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and Ontario, Canada.

If you can't haul it up to Green Bay but still want to support the All-Stars, join the viewing party hosted by the WCR on Sunday, Sept. 12 at Rodan (1530 N. Milwaukee Ave.), where fans will gather to watch the final two games of Thunda on the Tundra. Doors open an hour early at 4:45 p.m. to watch the battle for third place at 5. The final game to determine 1st and 2nd place begins at 7.
