The Southern Fried Smackdown – September 25-27
If, you as old as me, you probably remember watching Roller Derby on tv on Saturday afternoons. I always loved the girls teams and all the action, wheter it was real or staged. I just found out that Atlanta still has a roller derby team. They are a girl’s all-star team, The Dirty South Derby Girls. Their season ends this weekend with the Southern Fried Smackdown.
It all begins Friday night, September 25th, at 8pm as the Atlanta Rollergirls battle the Dallas Derby Devils for a chance to advance in the tournament. The tournement goes through Sunday. Come eat, drink, and enjoy the all-day derby action with teams from all over the South Central Region and vendors from around the derby nation. Bring your friends, check out the courtyard bazaar of derby merch and watch the best derby teams around duke it out for a place in the National Tournament.
