Following our triple-header on July 18, the Circle City Derby Girls of Indianapolis will host our final 2015 season home bout, a double-header, on Saturday, August 8. We will again be skating at Ellenberger Park in Historic Irvington, 5301 E. St. Clair St., Indianapolis, for this bout and our annual Halloween bout as part of the Historic Irvington Halloween Festival in late October 2015.
On Saturday, August 8, the doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and the first bout, Circle City Socialites vs. Midwest Corn Stars, will start at 6 p.m. The Midwest Corn Stars are a mash-up of players from other Midwest derby leagues.
The Circle City Party Crashers will face each other in the second bout for the second annual Battle of the Bs! This will be the first time many of our skaters will get to show off their derby skills in a public bout.>
Tickets for the August 8 bout will be available from your favorite skater until the week before the bout for $10, and at the door for $12. Tickets are also available online for $10 at www.brownpapertickets.com until Friday, August 7, and at our sponsor and favorite skater owned and operated store for derby gear, Vital Skates in Fountain Square, 1022 Virginia Ave., Indianapolis.
Even though we'll have a new venue, we will continue to support our 2015 charity, Rock Steady Boxing, which offers boxing-inspired exercises to give hope to those who have Parkinson's Disease. In addition to inviting them to share information at our bouts, a few CCDG skaters have signed up to be ring girls at an upcoming Friday Night Fight benefit on Friday, August 7, which will feature Golden Gloves Fighters.
