Boom Town T-Shirt Fundraiser!
Sep
19
to Oct 8

Boom Town T-Shirt Fundraiser!

Boom Town Bonfire T-Shirt Fundraiser!

Boom Town is hoping to travel from Alaska down to the lower 48 this year to try and gain world ranking at a tournament. Flights from Alaska aren't cheap, and then adding tournament fees and all that good stuff to the list really makes it hard for us to travel.

There are only 3 ranked World Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) teams in all of Alaska (5 member leagues), and they are across the board and insanely spread out: 

  • Rage City Rollergirls in Anchorage is ranked 62.
  • Fairbanks Rollergirls, 360 miles away in the interior, is ranked 287.
  • Sitka Rollergirls, the third WFTDA ranked team in Alaska is on an island close to Juneau (590 miles from Anchorage by air only), and is ranked 139.

To give you perspective on travel distance, one of the closest U.S. leagues is in Seattle, Washington. That is over 2000 miles away from Anchorage! (Falkor, where are you when we need you?)

So, that brings us to Boom Town. We are currently unranked and wish to change that. Not only do we want in on the competitive side of the WFTDA, but it will bring the entirety of Alaska to a higher appeal for others to travel here, and increase our own skill level by playing someone outside of the state.

Please take a moment to click the link to our little shirt fundraiser in the hopes to knock out tournament fees (and if we sell enough, hopefully some of our airfare). Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully buy a new scrimmage shirt, a birthday present for a derby buddy or treat yo'self!

The House Cup: Last Bout of the Season!

The House Cup: Last Bout of the Season!

On May 7th at 4:00 pm, doors will open to the Boom Town’s first ever Roller Derby House Cup. Skaters across Alaska can register for a chance to be sorted into one of the four houses of Hogwarts! Each of the teams (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin) will have a chance to play each other for a total of six 20-minute rounds (each team plays three times). At the end of the sixth game, all of the points will be totaled and the house with the most points wins the Roller Derby House Cup!

So what’s the catch? Well, for starters the audience will be calling the shots. Teams will be sorted evenly, but that means little when witches and wizards of all ages can pay to cast spells on the players. It might be anything as simple as ‘Reducio’ to remove some of the points a team has scored, or as crazy as ‘Confundus’ which will cause all skaters to move backwards for an entire jam! Even if you’re a roller derby Seventh Year, you’ve never been in a mashup quite like this before.

The fun doesn’t stop at game play. Skaters are encouraged to pick ‘Harry Potter’ themed names, audience members can buy their own wands, and you might even spot the Golden Snitch! This will truly be a magical event for witches and wizards of all ages, skaters and spectators alike. Bring your entire family and check out our activities and games, watch a live drum show during halftime, and sip a Butterbeer while cheering on your favorite house derby style! Come early to watch The Sorting Ceremony at 4pm and stay late to celebrate during our on-site afterparty until 10pm. It all happens at the Menard Sports Center in Wasilla. Children under 6 are FREE!

Spectators, click here to buy tickets!

Skaters, register here! You must know the Magic word to be able to receive your Letter of Acceptance. Contact any Boom Town member for more details!

Our first home game of the season! The last time we played against Fairbanks was during the Alaska State Tournament and we played them not only once, but twice in the brackets. It came down to the final jam and we took the lead, and continued on to win Fourth in the state! Not bad for a first time entry for a team in a state tournament. Will they come back stronger than ever before? Cheer for your Boomies as the Fairbanks Rollergirls try to break our winning streak!
