Muncie’s own Cornfed Derby Dames are gearing up for an action packed seventh season beginning in February. In 2016, Cornfed represented Muncie in many home and away games and tournaments throughout the Midwest. The team is now ranked 109 out of 320 international roller derby leagues in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). The addition of a B-Team, The Muncie Missfits, in 2016 has grown the league to over 30 active members.
The first home bout of season seven will be Sunday, February 26 at Gibson’s Skating Arena, 2610 S. Mock Ave. Doors open at 1 p.m. with a 2 p.m. start time. Cornfed will take on the Derby City Roller Girls of Louisville, KY in a double header versus their A & B teams.
Season 7 home games are as follows:
Sunday, February 26: All-Stars vs. Derby City Rollergirls All-Stars of Louisville, KY & Muncie Missfits vs. the Derby City Rollergirls’ Bourbon Brawlers of Louisville, KY
Sunday, March 12: All-Stars vs. Ann Arbor Derby Dimes’ Arbor Bruising Co. of Ann Arbor, MI & Muncie Missfits vs. Ann Arbor Derby Dimes’ Ypsilanti Vigilantes of Ann Arbor, MI
Saturday, July 8: All-Stars vs. Brewcity Bruisers’ All-Stars of Milwaukee, WI & Muncie Missfits vs. Brewcity Bruisers’ Battlestars of Milwaukee, WI
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.
In addition to their four home games, 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. The Muncie Missfits will also participate in the “B-Cup Tournament” May 20 & 21 in Bloomington, IN. Due to the high costs of travel and lodging, the dames are accepting donations from fans online here.
