Bellingham Roller Betties Doubleheader @ Whatcom Community College Pavillion
Apr 21 @ 5:00 pm
Bellingham Roller Betties Doubleheader @ Whatcom Community College Pavillion | Bellingham | Washington | United States

The Bellingham Roller Betties continue Season 11 with the last regular bout on Saturday, April 21 at 5:00 p.m. at the Pavilion on the campus of Whatcom Community College.

The evening features a doubleheader with home team The Cog Blockers battling it out with a visiting team followed by a bout between the Season 10 Champions Tough Love facing off against the Team F.L.A.S.H.

Team F.L.A.S.H can secure their spot in the Championships if they come out on top against Tough Love, but that isn’t going to be an easy feat. Coached by Mincemeat Outtaya, Tough Love has some power players – Bertha Beatdown and Jenacide have been owning the jammer line this season, and blockers Izzy X and Red Rum have been landing some great hits.

Team F.L.A.S.H. is coming in after a hard loss to the Canadian team the Smokin’ Laces, but captain Tornado Ally says that she knows her team is ready to play their game and bring in the win. The team has a great core strength with blockers Shreddy Bruiseavelt and Nona Nonesense, and their jammers Crumpet Crusher and Rampaige have been delivering the points.

The Cog Blockers are coming into this game after a nice win against Tough Love in the last bout. They will be playing against the Queer Squad Washington. The Queer Squad is a pick-up team that offers a safe, encouraging and inclusive environment to skaters that identify as LGBTQA+.

If Team F.L.A.S.H. wins this bout, they guarantee their spot in the Championship game this season. After coming in last place in Season 10, the skaters are certainly hungry for the win.

The Bellingham Roller Betties have a Merchandise Booth, Snack Bar and Beer and Wine Garden at all of their bouts at Whatcom Community College. Most extras are cash only, so come prepared. There is 21+ and Family Seating options in the stands. There will also be a food truck outside for those looking for dinner options.

Tickets for this event are $14 for adults, $6 for kids ages 8-12 and free for kids seven and under. Tickets are available at your local Community Food Co-Op, online through Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. Season tickets are also available online: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3382677.

Doors open at 4:00 p.m. and the first bout starts at 5:00 p.m.

Deep Dive Into Whatcom's Fishing Sector: WFN Spring Forum @ Squalicum Boathouse | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Inviting all organizations and people passionate about positively impacting our food system!

Every year, the Whatcom Food Network holds two forums to increase our awareness of work being done in our food system and to create a connecting point for us to come together, network and discuss important topics.

Though you may not work directly with the fishing sector, Whatcom is an active and productive hub for commercial fishing and it impacts us all! The fishing sector generates 1,781 direct jobs plus an additional 870 induced jobs, generates $320 million in revenue from the purchases by the fishing fleet at the Port’s marinas and $16 million in tax revenue for state and local governments. Learn about the economic impact, stock health, management issues and consumer issues, tribal fisheries and labor as it relates to this important sector.

Pete Granger, President of the Working Waterfront Coalition, member of Whatcom County Marine Resources Committee, former Program Leader for the Washington Sea Grant Program at University of Washington will be presenting along with Cliff Cultee, Former Chair of the Lummi Nation Indian Business Council; Kevin Riley, Assistant Plant Manager of Trident Seafoods; and Riley Starkes, Marketing Manager for Lummi Island Wild and longtime commercial fisherman.

Please join us for a morning of connecting and learning! Refreshments and delicious morning snacks will be provided.
