This year we had more attendees than ever before making this party a huge success for both the fun factor and for fundraising. The proceeds from this event will go to help renovate the old rink to expand it so that we can once again bring you the bouts that you’re looking forward to. Thank you EVERYBODY for coming and sharing the fun with us. We can’t do it without you and glad we were able to do this for you.

Red Dress Party 2014!

If you’ve lived in Corvallis/Albany for any length of time you’ve probably heard rumors of a large gathering of festive folks donning red dresses and dancing into the wee hours to music spun by the best DJ’s our little college town has to offer. When I first got word of this epic soiree, I found myself in a local tavern only to suddenly be wishing I had not donated my prom dress to Goodwill years ago as the after party piled in for last call.

Tired of missing out on all the fun, I attended my first Red Dress Party last year at Sub Zero. Rich in history, the Red Dress is an exercise in delicious abandon where there are few limits. Under dress, over dress, barely dress; it need only be RED. What started as a house party has evolved into a huge public event where hundreds of the area’s best dressed dive in to their sexy alter egos and shimmy and shake until the house comes down. This year, The Red Dress Party will be at the Elk’s Lodge on 9th Street in Corvallis on Friday February 21st.

As always, this party is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Sick Town Derby Dames. Entry is $10 at the door, $15 if you do not wear the required red attire. But don’t worry if your duds are less than acceptable – you’ll be accessorized by some of Sick Town’s best fashion police and you will become “one of us” in a loner red dress anyway!  But do be warned: you never know what we’ll find in our closets, and the earlier you come, the better the options ;)

Polar Plunge 2013 was a magical success!

The Polar Plunge is always such a fun event, and this year was no exception!  Sick Town put together a group dubbed “Team Magic” – a gathering of magical wizards, mythical beasts, and the stuff of legends!  Last year, we won the “Best Costume” award; however, this year, those sneaky law enforcement officers won with a reproduction of the cast of The Wizard of Oz, complete with kids dressed as flying monkeys.  You just can’t beat kids in costume!  We were a solid second.

We had a really strong showing with our newest skaters and league members, and we hope they know how much we appreciate their participation!  Our mermaids had no problem with the frigid Willamette…

but our unicorn was a bit blue after her dip!

Despite the outcome of the costume contest, the real winner is, of course, Special Olympics of Oregon.  With the money raised at the plunge, “Special Olympics Oregon [provides] year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.”  We can’t wait for next year!

Polar Plunge: Team Magic!

polar plunge 2011

Each year, Sick Town puts together a team to participate in the Polar Plunge, a fundraiser to benefit the Special Olympics of Oregon.  Our team members find sponsors who pledge to donate to our team, and in turn, we pledge to plunge into the frigid waters of the Willamette River!  Teams can win prizes for various categories, such as having the most members, raising the most money, and having the best costumes!

This year, we are Team Magic!  You can help our team by visiting our Donation Page, and making a contribution to the team, or to an individual skater.  We all know first-hand how important sports and physical activity can be to personal development, so help us help others with a sponsorship!  Then, come watch us as we take to the waters, rain or shine, no matter how cold the wind blows.

Skate-A-Thon

Sick Town is hosting it’s 1st annual Skate-A-Thon on October 8, 2011, and YOU’RE invited!  This event is open to anyone with a pair of skates.  Got a skateboard?  We’ll let you play, too.  We have up to 26 miles of beautiful paved paths, divided into different skill levels – beginner, intermediate, and advanced.  Skate as much or as little as you want.

All paths end up at Willamette Park, where we will be hosting a FREE BBQ with vegan/vegetarian options, sponsored by Corvallis Tourism.  There will also be a host of off-skate activities in the park, including an 18-hole disc golf course, horseshoes, a slip-n-slide, games, and Zumba.  Friends and family can enjoy the park while you work up an appetite with fellow skaters.

Sunday, we will be opening up our practice space for a Black vs. White scrimmage.  Space is limited; first come, first served.  Be sure to bring your insurance number.  All skill levels are welcome.
