This last Saturday, the 9th of May, we had a double header with SORG down in Medford. The juniors bouted first. We only had 5 juniors that were able to go, so their bout was mixed, with SORG juniors and Candy Stripers on each team. Evenly matched teams resulted in an exciting bout where the red team won by only 1 point.
The adults bouted next. Sick Town surprised everybody as we haven’t been able to practice in our rink for a year due to its ongoing repair work. But Sick Town stayed together as a team and had a great time, winning 279 to 88. Thank you SORG and all your volunteers for your hard work in hosting the bout!
We are still in the process of repairing our rink. We are making progress – concrete for the new support posts is scheduled to be poured next week – so hopefully we’ll be back in soon. But there is still a lot that needs to be done, and we can’t do it without your help. We have two opportunities coming up where you can make a difference in bringing the Sick Town bouts back to town!
1) Bid, Bowl, and Beer is happening Saturday. Come check out the awesome items being auctioned off. (Tickets to OMSI and whale-watching trips? Restaurant gift certificates? A contractor for a day? Yes, please!) Then come bid, bowl, and have some brews.
2) Flat Tail Brewing is hosting a dineout for Sick Town. It is happening Monday, May 18 from 11AM to 11PM. Just print out the flyer, and show it to your server: 40% of the proceeds will go to support our efforts in renovating the rink.
