The Cornfed Derby Dames kicked off their seventh season with two very close games against the Derby City Rollergirls of Louisville, Kentucky on Sunday, February 26. The Cornfed All-Stars skated away with an eight-point victory with the Muncie Missfits taking a narrow loss by 12 points.
Cornfed will hold its second home game of the season on Sunday, March 12 at Gibson’s Skating Arena, 2610 S. Mock Ave. The team will host Ann Arbor Roller Derby’s B and C teams for a double header. Doors will open at 1 p.m. with a 2 p.m. start time for the Muncie Missfits vs. the Ypsilanti Vigilantes followed by the Cornfed All-Stars vs. Arbor Bruising Co. at approximately 4 p.m.
Admission is $12 per person at the door, $10 in advance through Brown Paper Tickets, or from any Cornfed Derby Dame. College students are just $8 with an ID and children ages 10 and younger are free with the purchase of an adult ticket (limit two children). Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are available at the concession stand. A portion of all bout proceeds in 2017 will be donated to Muncie OUTreach.
Two additional home dates will take place on Sunday, April 2 and Saturday, July 8. Cornfed will travel to Dayton, OH on April 22, Indianapolis, IN on June 3, Cincinnati, OH on June 10, Cleveland, OH on June 24, and Quincy, IL on July 22.
