Sick Town on the Flat Track – Double Header!!!

April26_poster_color (1)

 

Have you been missing derby?  We certainly have!  With the crazy snow storms canceling two of our last three bouts, we’ve been itching to get back on the track.  To make up for some lost time, we’ll be hosting a double-header!  Coming up on April 26 at the Linn County Fair & Expo, both of our teams, the S*M*A*S*H Unit and the DisOrderlies, will gear up and face off against worthy opponents.

For the first bout, our DisOrderlies will face-off against the Southern Oregon Rollergirls.  The last time these two teams met, it was a very close win for SORG.  Our DisOrderlies are hoping take the win this time with the home track advantage.

Then our S*M*A*S*H Unit will take on Lava City Roller Dolls’ Smokin’ Ashes.  These two teams face off every year, and our S*M*A*S*H skaters are hoping to make this one something to remember!

This all-ages event will feature sweets by Wildflour Confectionery, a kids’ coloring table, an opportunity for the kiddos to run around during half-time, and more.  We’ll have a beer and cider station for adults, featuring 2 Towns Cider and a selection of local craft brews and familiar domestics.  Other food and beverages will also be available.

Since we have double the action for this bout, we’ll be starting earlier than usual.  We’ll open the doors at 4:00pm, and the opening ceremonies will begin at 5:00pm.  Advanced tickets are available at Uprise Skate Shop skate shop in Corvallis, or JP’s Restaurant and Lounge in Albany, or online at Brown Paper Tickets.

Tickets: $10 in advance for general admission; $13 at the door. VIP tickets (guaranteed front-row seating) are available at the door, $15.  General admission advance tickets can be upgraded to VIP at the door for $3.  Kids 5 and under free!

S*M*A*S*H Unit vs. ECRG’s Flat Track Furies – VICTORY!

This past Saturday, the Sick Town S*M*A*S*H Unit took on the Flat Track Furies, a hometeam from the Emerald City Roller Girls.  It’s been about 2 years since the two teams met on Sick Town’s own turf, and last time, the Furies took home the win.

This time, though, the S*M*A*S*H Unit brought some serious pain, and ended the bout victorious with a 43-point lead!  Despite missing two top jammers and two top blockers, the Sick Town skaters exhibited top-notch strategy, tight walls, and damaging hits.  This bout was a fantastic opportunity for some of our newer skaters to hone their skills.

You can read more about the double-header, and see more great photos, here - Daily Emerald Covers Sick Town Bout!  And don’t miss our bouts later this season against ECRG’s other home teams, the Church of Sk8in’ (April 13) and the Andromedolls (June 15)!

2012 Season Recap!

As Sick Town gets back into the swing of regular practices to prepare for our first bout of the new 2013 Season, we take a moment to recap last season’s exciting bout action.

  • January 29:  Oly Dropkick Donnas vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 198 – 48: Coming back from our winter break is never easy; the Dropkick Donnas took full advantage and did some serious damage to our SMASH Unit.  We left with a few injuries, but also with some great experience, memories, and stories.  We knew we would have to really step up our game for our next bout against them coming up in December!  See how that turned out below.
  • March 10: Sick Pistols vs. Country Club Crushers, 135 – 113:  For our first home bout of the season, we pitted Sick Town against Sick Town, dividing our bout pool of skaters into two teams.  A close game to the end, this bout was a great opportunity for non-chartered skaters to play.
  • April 28: LCRD Smokin’ Ashes vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 225 – 59: As always, Lava City brought their A-game, and gave us a good time both on and off the track.  We love LCRD because they always have new things to teach us, and always make us work!
  • May 19: Rainy City All-Stars vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 112 – 118: Our first win of the season, this bout was a close one from start to finish.  We last saw Rainy City at Knocktoberfest in 2011, and we’ve both come a long way since then.
  • June 09: LCRD Smokin’ Ashes vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 129 – 97: Our second bout this season against the Lava City ladies wasn’t technically a win, but our S*M*A*S*H Unit certainly felt vindicated!  We knocked off 160 points from the point differential between these two games.  In just a few short weeks, we totally overhauled our game.
  • September 29: Skatemberfest IV: Southern Oregon Rollergirls vs. S*M*A*S*H UNIT, 64 – 248:  After a few months of summer break, our S*M*A*S*H Unit wanted to start the second half of the season with a strong showing of skills and strategy.  Success!
  • October 27: Lilac City Roller Girls vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 163 – 165:  This bout was a nail-biter until the end!  In a very close match-up, the teams fought back and forth for the lead from start to finish.  The win was anyone’s guess, until our S*M*A*S*H Unit pulled out the win!
  • December 08: Oly Mash-Up Team vs. S*M*A*S*H Unit, 174 – 175:  We couldn’t have asked for a more exciting season finale than this bout!  Meeting up with some of our stiffest competition from the beginning of the season, we had our work cut out for us.  The S*M*A*S*H Unit was trailing behind a decent chunk of points in the second half, but some amazing jams in the final minutes of the game left the audience with 10 breathless minutes before the final score was announced; there wasn’t a single butt in the seats as the crowd cheered our glorious victory!
