The Road to Beaver Fever 2017 Begins...









Late April to Early May was a whirlwind of Flat Track Action as three tournaments took centre stage and saw a variety of teams come together.

Beast of The East 2017 took centre stage once again as Home Teams from Ontario, Quebec and this year the East Coast came together for an exciting weekend of action April 28th-30th. The Weekend also saw some great action as Team Canada showcased their skaters in a bout with Montreal's Mont Royals Men's Derby. Overall a great weekend of action with some suprising wins, and a great performance from TORD's Chicks Ahoy! and a tournament victory for La Racaille as the became the first team to repeat a championship win at Beast.

On the heels of Beast 2017 came Winter Wipeout 2017 hosted by Wellington Roller Derby. This tournament is becoming a regular event in Ontario and featured teams from all over Ontario. Belleville, Northumberland, Royal City, Renegade Derby Dames, Durham Region, Tri-City, Los Conos, Sarnia, Peterborough and Highland Dames all came together in two arena in Mount Forest for a day of intense action. Durham Region's Atom Smashers were on the verge of repeating their Championship win once again but lost their championship bout to Royal City's Killer Queens. All teams put in great performances this year.

 

Finally Royal City Roller Girls hosted their first Royal Brawl Invitational. The tournament saw Winnipeg, Rideau Valley, Tri-City, Capital City and host league Royal City all come together at the Centennial Arena in Guelph for action that will as a result affect the various leagues upcoming WFTDA Rankings.

All this plus a peppering of regular flat track action sets the stage for the upcoming Beaver Fever 2017 Tournament. A tournament that arguably has become a showcase of some of the most intense action next to the WFTDA Divisional Playoffs in the fall. As all eyes begin to turn towards this tournament more Home Season Openers continue to make their debut to round out the 2017 Flat Track Season.

 

Derby Fever is alive and well this year and 2017 shows no signs of slowing down.

Chicks Ahoy! Capture Fifth ToRD Title with Win over Dolls at Battle for the Boot 11

It was eleven years in the making: on Saturday night at The Bunker, the Death Track Dolls and Chicks Ahoy! squared off in the Battle for the Boot for the first time. The two teams have a shared history, born at the same moment when one of Toronto’s original flat track roller derby clubs (The Terrors) split into four teams to compensate for growing numbers. While it was a historic first showdown between the squads, both teams are familiar with battling for the boot. This was the third trip to the ToRD championship for the Dolls (who won in 2013 and 2014) and the seventh for the Chicks, who are defending champions and hold the record for the most Boot victories with four. The two teams have also faced each other three times this season with the Dolls taking the memorable regular season showdown before falling to the Chicks in the ToRD quarterfinals and in the third-place game at this year’s Beast of the East. At the Battle for the Boot on Saturday, the Chicks kept the winning streak alive capturing their fifth Toronto Roller Derby championship with a 190-123 win.
