Bouts, Bowls, and Brews

boutpic

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.

Remember Skating at the Old Rink?

When we bought the rink, we also ended up buying some of the old discarded skates that never got thrown out. What to do with them? Well, how about sell them at the auction? We took 21 of the nicest looking skates, painted them in Sick Town colors and planted them with succulents.

Succulents are easy to care for since they really don’t like to get much water, and they can spruce up the place. Make sure you have an opportunity to purchase one of these nostalgic planters by buying your tickets early, as tickets are limited.

  • Advance tickets through Brown Paper Tickets: $12
  • Tickets purchased at the door: $15
  • Kids 8 and under are FREE!

When: May 16, 5-8pm

The rink has been an important part of our community for generations. But it was built in 1923 and its roof is in need of repairs. While we’re at it, we’d also like to increase the size of the rink so that we can host our bouts for you.

The Polar Plunge was a Success!

polar plunge group

We had a good turnout and a great time. Better yet, we helped raise funds for a great cause, the Special Olympics. It started out raining, but stopped just in time for the costume contest. And even though the rain held off, we still got wet.

inwater

The Corvallis Polar Plunge raised $42,375. WRD raised $1,026 of that total. We even got in the Corvallis Gazette Times with a quote from Vengie. There is nothing more satisfying than helping others and we’re so glad to be able to do so. Thank you to everybody who helped with this event!

PB and JAM!
