Rookie Year with Cornfed

By July 2, 2015General

1534830_829037103802915_2382174924876790864_oWith passion in my eyes and skates on my feet, I started at the Cornfed Derby Dames (CFDD) fresh meat clinic in September of 2014.  I had skated a different type of derby before but wasn’t prepared to play WFTDA style, so I thought.  All us fresh meat started from the basics and got derby 101 from the ground level up.  It was a great way to strip all the renegade (illegal) moves out of my mind and start fresh.  After the clinic we started regular testing/practices and boy oh boy was it intimidating.  Going into this new derby and meeting a bunch of amazing skaters whom I had been watching play for the past 4 years was kind of, well let’s just say I had a roller-coaster of nerves in my belly.  My mind was blown that I was on the floor with skaters that were way above my skill level.

After all the testing, it was time to see if I made the charter and to my surprise I actually made it, and not only that, I rostered for our first bout of the season.  I will admit it was so scary, my knees were shaking so bad I could barely skate but I did it!!!

Now, I have come to the last home bout of my rookie season with CFDD, having rostered for every bout thus far, and getting to hit our home track one last time this season with these amazing teammates of mine.

CFDD will be taking on the Vette City Vixens Saturday July 11 at 7 p.m. for our last home bout of season 5.  Come out to Gibson Skating Arena and cheer us to another victory and help me end my rookie season with a BANG! Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are $8 pre-sale and $10 at the door, with kids 10 and under free.

Don’t forget our furry friends!  A portion of our proceeds are donated to ARF (animal rescue fund) and we will also be collecting donation items.  Please consider donating: dish washing liquid, laundry soap, any kind of dog chew toys, treats, catnip, dog or cat collars. Don’t miss  your last chance to see CFDD on our home turf this season!
