OilersNation RIPDOD party presented by Cornerstone Insurance

OilersNation RIPDOD party presented by Cornerstone Insurance

I don’t have to tell you about all the hell we’ve been through. I don’t have to tell you about all the miserable hockey we’ve had to watch and live through without even having a sniff of the postseason. That all changed on Tuesday night.

My friends, I am here today to tell you about a party that has been 10 years in the making. A party that we’ve been waiting to have ever since the very first day of Oilersnation.com even existing. A party that any Edmonton hockey fan has been dying for. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m talking about a clinch party. I’m talking about the end of the decade of darkness and we’re thinking that a party is in order.

With that in mind, Cornerstone Insurance and Oilersnation are proud to present the #RIPDOD Party.


If the Infinibuild® has taught us anything it’s how to throw a smasher of a party that blows the roof off of the Pint Downtown. Whether we’re talking about draft parties, season opener parties, Connorversaries, #PrayForPlayoffs parties, or any of the other events that we’ve used as an excuse to drink you guys have always been up to get down. This party is different, though. This party is literally something that we’ve never been able to do before and you’re going to want to be a part of it.

At this point, we’ve all gone through 10 years of suck with no light at the end of the tunnel apart from another 18-year-old prospect to get excited about. Now that the Oilers are in a playoff position, we have something new and exciting to celebrate but, at the same time, this is so much more than that. This event isn’t just another party for the sake of doing it but a party that signifies the end of a very dark era in Oilers history. This party signifies the end of the decade of darkness.


As if you didn’t already know, the Decade of Darkness party will be happening at the Pint Downtown on Saturday, April 8th, with doors opening at 5pm and the hockey game starting at 8pm. Aside from making sure we’re all well hydrated, we’ve got the usual swag bags planned along with raffles, giveaways, and more. I encourage you to start coughing now so that your boss won’t be suspicious when you call in sick.

As always, it wouldn’t be a Nation party without trying to raise as much money as possible for our charity partner, Alberta Alzheimer’s Society. If you’re unfamiliar with their work, the Alberta Alzheimer’s Society consists of seven regional organizations dedicated to changing the face of dementia in Alberta and improve the quality of life for those with the disease.

Your $30 ticket gets you:

Limited Edition Violent Gentlemen/Oilersnation hat for the first 90 through the door
Limited Edition Violent Gentlemen/Oilersnation collaboration shirt for everyone else
Limited Edition Decade of Darkness collector’s cup
Gift cards from Oodle Noodle, the Pint, Jiffy Lube, United Cycle and more
Access to the Decade of Darkness NationGear pop-up shop
Don’t even think we’re done yet. We’ll be adding more prizes and giveaways as we get closer to the event. The value of the swag bag is currently at $100 and counting.
You’ve all suffered through 10 years of darkness, and now we want to reward you for it with the 10 days of Clinchmas. Every day until the party on April 8th we will be adding a new prize to the list that you’ll be eligible for with your ticket to the party. Keep checking back here for what’s been added to the list.

As always, all proceeds from ticket sales will be donated directly to the Alberta Alzheimer’s Societ so bring your friends, get involved, and help us support a community in need. You can get your tickets here before they sell out. This is a party that’s been 10 years in the making and you’re going to want to be a part of it.
