Mark your calendars now: During the last weekend in September, Austin's own Texas Rollergirls will host the second annual Women's Flat Track Derby Association Championship Tournament. Defending their title as 2006's WFTDA champion, the Texas Rollergirls' top team will compete with seven other flat-track Roller Derby teams. The list of competitors comprises the Top 4 teams from both the eastern and western leagues in the WFTDA.

The wild women from the West include the Texas Rollergirls, Kansas City Roller Warriors, Seattle's Rat City Rollergirls, and Tucson Roller Derby, while the four teams from the East will be determined in August, following the Eastern Regional Tournament.

The Roller Derby festivities go down Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 29-30, at the Austin Convention Center, and will feature, bands, games, merchandise, and, of course, intense, highly competitive matches among the best flat-track teams in the WFTDA. Tickets are on sale now.

The Hell Marys, Hotrod Honeys, Honky Tonk Heartbreakers, Hustlers, and the Texecutioners - their all-star squad - make up our Texas Rollergirls, who should be proud to be considered the cream of the crop among the 38 leagues that belong to the WFTDA. To learn more about Austin's league, visit
