The Rollergirls in Pagosa (RIP) would like to thank the following sponsors and donors for another outstanding year of derby: Dean Schultz, Made in Colorado, Ponderosa Lumber, Angela’s Flowers, Studio 160, The Costume Shop, All About You Day Spa, Elly Heitkamp, Pagosa Peak Pizza, Mountain Spirits, Radio Shack, Koch Family Enterprises, Sweets-N-Such, Tanya Quinn, Fastwax, San Juan Dental, Pagosa Brewing Company and many more, including our amazing volunteers and fans.

Skaters Coalition

The Skaters Coalition for Concrete would like to express our appreciation to everybody that made the Rail Jam event on Feb. 15 a success.

Mike Moore from Moore and Company, Smithco and Davey Pitcher from Wolf Creek Ski Area trucked in five dump truck loads of snow. Without this snow, the Rail Jam, as well as the Anything Goes Downhill Sled Race, would not have been possible.

Jim Miller from the town parks department, Jay Lally, Dave Steinert, Kevin Blue, Derek Lamoreaux and countless others helped to move the snow into place. Kevin Blue, Jay Lally and Jon King did a great job judging, DJ Derek Lamoreaux provided music, Chef Matt Degelman cooked up some tasty food, and Jason Cox from Riff Raff Brewing ran the beer garden.

A big thank you to our sponsors: Summit Ski and Sports, Wolf Creek Ski Area, Moore and Company, Pagosa Brewing Company, Riff Raff Brewing Company, Silver Dollar Liquors, Kip’s Grill and Cantina, Gosar Sausage, GrassRoots Meats, Degelman’s Red Wagon Grill, The Outfitter Department Store, Shred Ready, Sheepshead Cabin, Lib Tech and Never Summer Industries.

Everybody had a great time.  Daniel Roeder won first place in the adult category. Bradley Lamoreaux won first in the junior category.

We raised $1,500 for phase two of the Yamaguchi skatepark, which everybody is looking forward to being built in the near future. Please check out our website at for more information and to donate to phase two.
