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.

Disney’s Choo Choo Soul With Genevieve! @ McIntyre Hall
Apr 22 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Genevieve Goings and Constantine “DC” Abramson, the stars of Disney Junior’s “Choo Choo Soul,” are entering their 11th year of entertaining pre-schoolers and parents worldwide. Born from the mind of a Silicon Valley video game developer, Choo Choo Soul began as a hip-hop/soul children’s album of music that “won’t drive parents crazy.” The album caught fire and the brand was acquired by Disney and developed into a live-action television interstitial paired with animation in 2006 that encouraged young viewers to get up and dance to their funky, urban sound. Choo Choo Soul began touring the country in 2007 and has performed for thousands of children in over 100 cities across the globe. With the wildfire success of the go-to duo for tots, Disney commissioned a release of their second studio album; a re-make mashup of Classic Disney hits. The Live incarnation of Choo Choo Soul finds Genevieve, the soulful and hip singing train conductor, and DC, the beatboxing, breakdancing engineer on stage engaging children in sing-alongs, dance routines and lots of crowd participation as they perform the hits as seen on Disney Junior.

Reserved Seating: $25

Box Seats: $35
