Although there are no official activities scheduled for CRG this weekend, our ladies have no plans to take a break! On Saturday, June 19, Carolina Bootleggers Fairy Brutal, Ballista Blockheart, Leatherneck, Sheeza Freak, and Hot Mess Express will head to Greensboro to celebrate the 2nd birthday of the Camel City Thrashers by participating in an invitational bout with our local derby sisters. Come out and support CRG and Camel City and watch some awesome derby while you’re at it!
