The Ithaca SufferJets are coming down with Full Moon Fever as they get ready to take on Buffalo’s Devil Dollies in honor of Valentina Tereshkova—the first woman in space—on Saturday June 26th at the J.M. McDonald Sports Complex in Cortland.

This will be the Ithaca League’s final bout of the season in their springtime Cortland home, as they return to Ithaca’s Cass Park Rink in July.

The bout promises to be one of the closest matches of the season; at their last meeting in 2009 the Ithaca SufferJets beat the Devil Dollies by just one point earned in the final seconds of the game. Come support your SufferJets as they duke it out to maintain dominance over the Dollies.

Music will be provided by ILWR DJ’s Bob and Luke, who will be joined by the spirited Fall Creek Brass Band. Ithaca’s Running to Places Theater Company will perform a special suffrage-inspired halftime show.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the first whistle blows at 7 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults. Kids aged 12 and under are admitted for free. Tickets for this bout and the entire 2010 season are now available here. Tickets also available at the Ticket Center at Center Ithaca on the Ithaca Commons.

The J.M. McDonald Sports Complex is located at 4292 Fairgrounds Drive in Cortland. Join the SufferJets after the bout at The Dark Horse Tavern in downtown Cortland.

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to support the JM McDonald Center— hosts of ILWR’s 2010 spring season.

Get your moonwalk on…
