BEAST of the EAST 2014

BEAST of the EAST 2014

At the end of April, FCDG makes a yearly pilgrimage to Montreal for what some might consider a highlight of the derby year.  In its seventh year, Montreal Roller Derby’s Beast of the East did not disappoint with the constant roar of roller derby fans and plethora of PBR cans.

This year amidst the increasing number of full costumed mascots and beeramids, people sat at the edge of their seats to watch one heart attack-inducing bout after another.

It was a proud moment for FCDG when the Ladies took their first two games to make it to the quarter-finals the next day, just as the Fatales had the year before.  Both the Thames Fatales and the Lunch Ladies played with gusto, complete with league mates and supporters EFF! CEE DEE GEE-ing on the sidelines at every opportunity.

Some may think an almost 9 hour drive to almost live in arena for 48 hours may be an insane activity to participant in… but for most FCDG-ers, every drop of sweat, PBR, or coffee from Café Olimpico on St. Viateur is worth it.

À la prochaine, Montréal!
