It has been a rather hectic summer for Granite City Brawlers. Hot on the heels of our game against GMRD it was all hands on deck as the Iceberg that was MEQ was fast approaching! The MRDA European Qualifiers gave some of the top teams in Europe a chance to qualify for MRDA Champs, being held in Colorado in October. Hosted by GCB (due in no small part to the fantastic success of SSC last year), 4 teams joined them on the weekend of 3/4 August for two days packed with top level Roller Derby action.
Kamiquadz from France returned seeking to avenge their SSC final defeat while Tyne & Fear also returned to Aberdeen. GMRD travelled up the road having the shortest journey of the travelling teams, while Manneken Beasts from Belgium completed the line up.
After 4 games each, the final standings may surprise those who go by rankings alone, but on track there was no doubt that the final placements are all well deserved. Huge Congratulations to Kamiquadz for finishing top and to Manneken Beats, who both received medals and invites to Champs in October. Best of luck to those that make the journey across, we'll be cheering you on!
