Hosts Bay Area Derby Girls and the top West Region teams continued the revolution into the second week of WFTDA tournament play, Sept. 21–23 in Richmond California. The "Bay of Reckoning" turned out to be intense with many shakeups in the rankings!
Advancing to the 2012 WFTDA Championships are the Oly Rollers, of Olympia, Washington; Denver Roller Dolls, of Denver, Colorado; and the Bay Area Derby Girls, of San Francisco, California.
Northern California’s premiere roller derby league, the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls are thrilled to host WFTDA’s 2012 Western Regional Tournament. The Bay Area, including Oakland and San Francisco, boasts some of the best parks, restaurants, hotels and bars. Night or day, if you aren’t too busy skating or watching a bout, you can find something exciting to do.
There are two hotel options for the West Region Playoffs: the Four Points by Sheraton Bay Bridge and Hilton Garden Inn Bay Bridge. Both are located on Powell Street in Emeryville, CA. Both boast views of the San Francisco Bay and are close to shopping and dining options.
Craneway Pavillion, located in Richmond, CA, is set on 25 waterfront acres and offers views of the San Francisco Bay. The former 1931 Ford assembly plant has been revamped into a state-of-the-art convention center built with environmental sustainability in mind, complete with a 1 megawatt solar power station on the roof.

There are two airport options for those who are flying into the Bay Area: Oakland International Airport (OAK) and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). OAK airport is approximately 14 miles to Emeryville and SFO airport is approximately 21 miles.
While we have a decent public transportation system, getting to/from the Craneway Pavilion (and other amazing places in the Bay Area that are fun to explore) could be challenging. We recommend renting a car.
