Arrrrggghhhhh ya ready? This Saturday, Aug. 9, we will be putting on a double header with two travel teams coming to Greensboro and playing our A and B teams in an epic pirate themed showdown. First you will be treated to Greensboro Counterstrike’s first bout EVER! This is our new B-team, comprised from skaters from our three home teams, led by Sigourney Cleaver and C. Oswin. They will be taking on Daville Vixens Roller Girls from Fayetteville, NC. Also, check out what the Counterstrikers are wearing! Would you like to be wearing the same logo? Then head over to the merchandise table and check out the new Counterstrike shirts.

The second bout will be one you don’t want to miss! Fresh from a spectacular victory against Richland County Regulators in South Carolina, our Gate City All-Stars will be challenging the Carolina Rollergirls from Raleigh, NC. We recently had a closed scrimmage against CRG, and both teams are eager for a re-match in front of a packed audience. Carolina Rollergirls is currently ranked 85th in the WFTDA official rankings and Gate City is ranked 155th. This is also Betty Switch and Buster Licious’ first appearance as the new captains of Gate City! We all know they are going to be incredible in the positions.
