Auld Reekie Roller Girls are going to America!

50 bouts | 3 rinks | 1 weekendThe poster for ECDX 2013

Auld Reekie’s all-star travel team, the Twisted Thistles, have been invited to take part in the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX) roller derby tournament in Philadelphia, USA, from 28 to 30 June 2013.

This year marks the seventh year of ECDX and will feature ARRG battling it out with the best teams from America, Canada and the UK, in what is one of the biggest events in the derby world. ECDX’13 will be three days filled with 50 bouts happening simultaneously across three rinks, drawing in more than 1,000 skaters and 200+ referees.

As Scotland’s first team to become recognised by WFTDA, Auld Reekie Roller Girls have always worked hard and competed at the highest level and it doesn’t get much higher than bouting with the big girls at ECDX. Fresh from placing fourth in Europe at the Track Queens Tournament in Berlin in November, the Twisted Thistles are guaranteed to be fighting fit and ready to take on the best that Philly’s got to offer.

Keep an eye on the news, like us on Facebook and follow ARRG on Twitter (@AuldReekieRG) for EDCX news and ways that you can get involved with Easyfundraising and help send ARRG to Philly.

We are also accepting direct contributions to our trip via the ‘Donate’ page of our website!

Because, as ARRG Captain Lianne Parry (Crazylegs) said:

“The USA will not know what hit it when Auld Reekie rolls into town.”

Judging by the training footage that has leaked earlier this week, Philadelphia is in for a treat indeed!
