At Tri-City we have been proud to be the home of internationally renown and much respected announcer, Lightening Slim. If you have been to a TCRD bout before, you have likely seen him track side with the mic. His quick wit, mutton chops, trademark hat and leather jacket adorned with flair, you can’t mistake him! This season is pivotal as we say goodbye (but not farewell!) to Slim, as he steps away from announcing and turns his gaze to the track as a fan! We will not be the same without him! See you track side Slim! As derby has grown, so has our announcer roster. Obi has been with TCRD for a few seasons now, amassing an extensive resume while announcing for leagues all over Southwestern Ontario! He will be back again with year, leading Roadside, Meow and a few other golden voices, who hop on for a ride! Catch them all at the games and be sure to give a hi-five and tune in for the play by plays!
