Kings of the Road: The Story of the Portland Buckaroos is the topic of the History Pub Monday, July 25, 2011 at the Kennedy School (5736 NE 33rd).
In 1959 the fate of Portland’s hockey team was in doubt. With only a handful of players returning and the press denouncing the team as the worst team ever fielded in the league, all they could do was skate.
Kings of the Road, a 26-minute documentary film, tells the story of the Portland Buckaroos and their remarkable rise as champions and division leaders year after year from 1960-74. Join us for this lively presentation and film screening.
In addition to the film, Dan Schaefer, director of Kings of the Road, will be joined by several former Buckaroos for a panel discussion.
Join event co-sponsors Oregon Historical Society and Holy Names Heritage Center at 7pm Monday for a beer and history! Admission is free and this event is all ages. Please bring canned food donations for the Oregon Food Bank!
