Today our All-Stars are traveling to Tucson, AZ to participate in the 2011 Dust Devil Tournament. The tournament consists of twelve teams playing two days of non-stop derby in the scorching Arizona heat (it is supposed to be 95 degrees there today for all you Carolina locals who have been defrosting your cars this week!) to earn the title of Dust Devil Champion. You can print out a bracket for your office poll here.
You loyal fans might remember that CRG was part of the very first Dust Devil in 2006 when it was the national championship tournament. CRG fell in the second round to the eventual national champion Texas Rollergirls. For a blast from the past, check out this set from Flickr where you can see current All-Stars Jesse King (formerly known as Kitty Crowbar), Roxy Rockett, and Eva Lye tearing up the Dust Devil track 5 years ago.
CRGs first bout is tomorrow at 3:30p EDT (12:30p Tucson time) and DNN will carry the action live. You can also follow how your favorite team is doing by following us on Twitter or Facebook.
And in true blog fashion, we want to wish our All-Stars the best of luck with a completely ridiculous picture- we hope you can hear us cheering from across the country! Now go kick some Dust Devil!
