The dates are closing fast and though the RDAC Western Region Tournament is more or less staffed and planned the RDAC Central Region Tournament, to be held in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan this upcoming August 10th and 11th, is still looking for teams to participate and tournament positions to be filled. But, before we get into that, let’s take a look at the first regional event coming near you!
RDAC Western Region Tournament
The Western Region Tournament will be held in Price George, BC this upcoming July 13th and 14th. It was originally planned to be hosted in Fernie, BC by the East Kootenay Roller Derby league (EKRDL) but a number of administrative difficulties led to the EKRDL having to pull out. In a press release made public by the Roller Derby Association of Canada (RDAC) on May 9th, an unnamed speaker spoke of the change: “We understand this decision was hard to make and commend East Kootenay Roller Derby League for acting on the side of caution and responsibility to their own members. RDAC is actively working on ways to better manage our system and offer more guidance, support and structure to hosting communities moving forward… Our Board and Advisers felt that after a successful RDAC-Run Nationals in Edmonton, and with little time, both left to organize and for participants to change plans, we could best serve the community by taking on the responsibility and risk ourselves and grow from our success in Edmonton.”
