Does your corgi have what it takes to be a champion?

Bring them down to watch the Iowa Barnstormers on April 14th and find out!

At half-time of the Barnstormers vs. Nebraska Danger game, corgis and their owners will take the field to race against each other until the fastest corgi emerges victorious! Registration is only $25 per corgi which includes two human tickets, and $15 from this price will go directly to the homeless pets at the ARL. Once the chase is finished, corgis are invited to stay and watch the game with their owners. If you don't have a corgi but would like to attend, you can still buy tickets through the ARL website for $10, and 50% of individual ticket sales will go to the ARL.
