Rueda column: MAD girls gearing up for Verizon home opener


The Fresh Meat Locker usually runs about 12 weeks and is held on Sundays from 3 to 5 p.m. Slamra says all women are welcome to attend the May 4 session for an introduction to the sport.

“Right now we’re all pretty excited for our first home bout,” she said. “Fans will see some better derby this year. It’s nice to go and play at other arenas and see what they’re like, but we think our arena is the best.”

Following the opener, the MAD girls will have home bouts against the Cedar Rapids Rollergirls of Iowa on May 31, The Dames of Anarchy from Mason City, Iowa, on July 19 and The Attackonites from Grand Rapids, Minn. on Aug 23.

Tickets for all MAD girls bouts may be purchased at the Verizon Civic Center box office, on Ticketmaster or from any member of the team. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door for general admission and $15 for trackside seating.
