April showers bring May flowers… and May flowers bring you Atlanta Roller Derby dominance! First up is the Rumble Bs taking on their sister B-Team from Columbia, South Carolina, the Columbia Quad Squad Miss B-Havers. Our headlining game is the Atlanta All-Stars, the Dirty South Derby Girls, taking the track against the Charm City Roller Girls. It’s singles night and anything can happen! Find an ask-me girl if you have any questions about game play, or if you need a little help with some match-making (wink, wink). <3

The Rumble Bs hope to continue their undefeated season against regional rivals Columbia QuadSquad’s Miss B-Havers. Rumor has it that the Quad Squad roster is stacked with players that do double duty on the A team, so this will be a tough battle! Although these two teams have never played each other, the Bs were handed nearly a 100 point loss from the CQS All-Star team in 2011. Will the fast feet from jammers Evil Olive and Nora Gretz and the blocking prowess from Lux Furious and Saikou be enough to keep the perfect winning record? Raise your beer to cheer along with The Bee!
Game 2: Dirty South Derby Girls (2-1) vs Charm City Roller Girls All-Stars (1-0)
Since we last saw DSDG, they have had two solid wins over Tampa and Charlottesville at the Southern Discomfort tournament. Atlanta is hungry for a home win tonight and only fourteen ladies from Baltimore stand in their way. The Charm City All-Stars started their 2016 season with a win last month against the Brandywine Roller Derby, but the Atlanta team is a whole different story. Make sure to keep your eyes on Rosie Derivator and Brick, blockers making their debuts on the All-Star team this year. Charm City captain, I.M. Pain, trained as a speed skater oh-so-long-ago under our very own Coach Jim, so you know she’s got some skills to watch out for! Can the red and baby blue take home the win? Can you do the wave and the woo along with Human Missile Crisis?
If those two games aren’t enough to entice to you make your way to the Yaarab Shrine Temple on Saturday, remember that May 21st is also our first ever Single’s night! Mingle with new people in your own special seating area, potentially win fun prizes and hang out with your very own rollergirl matchmaker! With all that, why haven’t you gotten your TICKETS yet?!
