The Docket

This coming Saturday (Aug 2) is action packed, by god:

Latest word on The Funky Four Plus One More's excellent Flugtag adventure, via MySpace:

Come support the Rose City Rollers in this year’s Red Bull Flugtag competition! This Saturday from 1-3 PM at Waterfront Park near the Hawthorne Bridge. We “fly” around 2 PM in our giant flying roller skate! Our team name is Funky Four Plus One More. For more information, visit funky4plus1more.com or redbullflugtagusa.com.

If you cannot make it to watch on Saturday, simply text “Team 29” to 72855 from 11 AM- 3 PM PST on Saturday! Help us with Crowd Favorite. We need about 10,000 votes to win!

Go support them: they're doing spectacular stuff.


Starting at the same time, but going later into the weekend, is Rogue’s 14th Annual Bones and Brew Festival. Heathers are pouring beer, and proceeds benefit the magnificent Oregon Zoo.

Where and when: NW 15th Avenue between Everett and Glisan and on Flanders between 14th and 15th. Hours are Saturday, August 2nd from 11am-9pm, and Sunday, August 3rd from 11am-7pm. A $3 donation is requested at the door. Dogs and Kids are welcome.


Cheap Ticket Night for that August 9 championship bout is coming up on Wednesday, August 6th at the following locations from 7-9 PM:

Rogue Brew Pub
1339 NW Flanders

Nightlight Lounge
2100 SE Clinton

Kay's Bar

Get some discount tickets from RCR players and quaff a pint or down a shot at one of the fine above-listed establishments.


Lotta people off to Rollercon in the loathsome hole popularly known as Las Vegas, 07/30 - 08/03. Bring back your pics and clips and one of those "Roll Out with Your Hole Out" shirts, men's large, and we'll make a feeble attempt at making it worth your while. For those about to rock, we salute you.

Now that The Coroner has spoken, your weekend plans are set!

In case you were planning on something else to occupy your weekend (perish the thought), here are a few more deets that might change your mind:

The Funky4Plus1More (which includes TeKillYa, No Namey, Sol Train and two other brave, though not Heartless funksters) are launching their craft into the foul Willamette River at the Red Bull Flugtag on the waterfront all in the name of raising funds for the Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. Definitely follow one of the links above, cheer them on, and if you can, consider contributing to this worthy cause. Last I heard they had already raised in the neighborhood of $4000 (!) for the SHOC Foundation, but with your help they want to get that number even higher!

Speaking of putting the "fun" in fundraising, as The Coroner mentioned, Rogue's 14th Annual Bones and Brew is a benefit for the Oregon Zoo (well, it also benefits those quaffing the tasty brews and delicious BBQ). But what you may not have known is that the Heathers benefit too! When you tip the kind Heather (or Heather's Widower) who pours your beer your gratuity goes straight to the team; so you can feel good and tell everybody that you're getting your buzz on to help not one, but two worthwhile causes!

Hope to see you all there!
