My brain is still melted after Thunda on the Tundra, the 2010 WFTDA North Central Regional tournament. While my favorite home team, the Arch Rival Roller Girls, did not fare as well as they had hoped, I think that they gained some really valuable insight both on and off the track that will help them immensely. And you can’t ever discount their effort or heart. They were fighting until the last whistle on Sunday, just like they always do.
As for the other teams, I have to say that my favorite teams to watch were North Star Roller Girls, Madison Mad Rollin’ Dolls, and a good square tie between Windy City Rollers and Minnesota Roller Girls. MNRG totally stole the tournament, even though they came in second place. Chicago wasn’t as amazing as I had seen in the past until the last day, when it really counted, and then they showed everyone why they’re still #1 spot in North Central.
