Sick Town’s Homecoming Bout – Sick or Treat! October 28, 2017

We’ve been working hard since getting back into our historic rink in April of 2016, and have already taken to the track in several away bouts in the past year. Now we’re ready to bring derby back to our home turf! We’re thrilled to announce we have our first home bout in over three years scheduled for October 28 at the Linn County Fair & Expo!

Our current team is made up of several of your favorite skaters from years past, plus some brand new talent filling out the ranks. We will be hosting Air Raid Roller Derby in what is sure to be a fun and exciting bout! Celebrate with Sick Town as we continue repairs on our 97-year-old roller rink practice space north of Corvallis.

Doors open at 5pm; bout action starts at 6pm!

This family-friendly event is all ages. As always, we’ll have food vendors, a beer garden, a Sick Town merch table, half-time fun and more!

There will be a COSTUME CONTEST featured during half time. Come dressed to shock, awe and win some sweet Sick Town prizes!

We’re Back!

As you may have heard, the Sick Town Derby Dames have been on a hiatus as we’ve made repairs and improvements to our home, the historic Lake Park Roller Rink just north of Corvallis.  After almost two years of weekend work parties and various inspections, we’ve finally been approved to start skating in our home once again!

We began practicing this week, and we’ve already had 30 skaters return to strap on their wheels!  We couldn’t be happier with this level of response.  With so many of us having been off skates for so long, we know we have a long road ahead of us.  But seeing so many smiling, sweaty faces made our hearts swell!

As we get our skates back under us, we’ll be reaching out to the community for more interested skaters.  We plan to start our next Boot Camp session within the next 4-6 weeks.  Boot Camps run 6 or 7 weeks, and start with the very basics; these are non-contact sessions, and skaters learn all the skills needed to move on to full contact derby.  For more information on Boot Camps, shoot an e-mail to sicktownrecruits@gmail.com!

We want to thank everyone who helped and supported us along the way – our gratitude is endless!  It was a long road, with quite a few speed bumps, but we’re finally home, and we are looking forward to our next chapter!
