WCR All-Stars Bout at Chicago Invitational

wcr logo2.jpgThere's no rest for the wicked. Hot off the heels of their appearance at the 2011 national derby championships, the Windy City Rollers All-Stars will strap on their skates once again to take part in the Chicago Invitational banked-track tournament on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 18-19.

Four of the nations top teams will play for a chance to win a $10,000 first prize. That buys a whole lotta PBR, y'all. Friday night's bouts pit NYC's Gotham Roller Girls vs. Denver's Rocky Mountain Roller Girls, and the WCR All-Stars vs. the LA Derby Dolls. Saturday night, the losers of Friday's two games will play each other for the $1,000 3rd place prize, followed by the bout for first place.

The tournament takes place at the Odeum Center (1033 N Villa Ave) in Villa Park. Both evenings, the bout will start at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $25 for bleacher seats; get yours online or at the door.
