Stormtroopers to Invade Roller Derby!

Bonnie Burton | May 27, 2009

Ft. Wayne and Indianapolis are like the Empire and Rebellion in Indiana when it comes to roller derby teams, so it seemed only fitting to have the 501st and Rebel Legion come along for Cyclone Wars!

Rebel Legion Commanding Officer Matthew W. Hofmann reports:

About 30 costumed characters from the Rebel Legion and 501st will be at this event, including Darth Vader, Chewbacca, the Fetts, and R2-D2 along with all your favorite armored or lightsaber-wielding friends. They’ll also be having a Jail and Bail to benefit Girls Inc. of Indianapolis and a halftime target practice show featuring the Rebel Legion teaching future members of the Rebellion how to shoot TKs with dart guns for fun and fabulous Star Wars and Naptown Roller Girls prizes!

It’s this Saturday at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Get ticket info here. Tickets will remain on sale until midnight, Friday, May 29. Doors open at 5 pm, and the double header begins at about 5:30 pm.

May the Force be with your roller skates!
