This fundraising event will support renovations on our historic roller rink just north of Corvallis, and allow us to return to skating year-round. The rink is home to Sick Town Derby Dames, Candy Stripers Jr. Derby, and Willamette Roller Derby Officials.

Bid, Bowl and Beer

flyer

Come have some fun bowling and bidding on some fantastic items in our silent auction while helping raise funds for renovating Sick Town’s historic roller rink.

What: Come enjoy an evening of fun – bowling, silent auction and beer (and cider)
When: May 16, 5-8pm
Where: Highland Bowl at 2123 NW 9th St, Corvallis
Why: To raise funds to revamp our historic rink

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.

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…

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!

Fourth of July Parade

One of my favorite events this summer was the “Anyone Can Join” Fourth of July parade in downtown Corvallis. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of a theme; add sparklers and fireworks to the mix and I’m over the moon! Sick Town came decked out in red, white & blue with kids and pets in tow all to celebrate Independence Day! It was an awesome event with a great crowd, everyone celebrating our Country and of course the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces. We have a number of skaters with loved ones and children serving in our military, which is why it felt so important that Sick Town get out and celebrate with a bang!

Sick Town was excited to have an opportunity to hang out with members of our community.  All of the Sick Town kiddos had a blast hanging out with each other and tossing candy to the crowds on the streets watching the parade. There were even llamas in the parade all dressed up in sparkly hats and funny glasses – I think the grown ups were as excited about them as the kids! It was a rad event, definitely a high light of my summer!
