We all Fall down sometimes. In derby, the important thing is to get back up and hit a b*tch.
Come to our very special Autumn Mashup bout this Saturday, November 18, to see dozens of local athletes do just that. Jet City has invited skaters from the PNW derby community to skate with and against us in what’s sure to be a very special evening of roller hijinks—two games that will cast friends as enemies until the clock counts down to the final whistle. (At which point expect much hugging and many high-fives).
But feelings aren’t the only things getting mashed this weekend. In honor of this harvest season and the following weekend’s celebration of gluttony, Jet City has partnered with the Edmonds Food Bank, a local organization currently providing groceries for 800 households a week. You can support their mission of creating food security in the greater Edmonds area in three ways:
- Bring 3 or more non-perishable food items, toiletries, baby supplies,
and/or household cleaning supplies to the bout and receive a free bag
of popcorn in return.
- Buy tickets to our 50/50 raffle for a chance to go home with half the
pot—and feel good about sending the other half to Edmonds Food
- Make a monetary donation when buying bout tickets.
The doors (and beer & cider garden) of Edmonds College’s Seaview Gym open at 4pm, with the first whistle at 5 pm. Admission is $15 in advance or $18 at the door, with discounts for seniors, kids, and military.
Children 5 and under are always free.
And the fun doesn’t have to end at the last whistle—all guests of legal drinking age are invited to join the Jet City After Party at The Bulldog Saloon (19920 WA-99, Lynnwood—about two blocks from Seaview Gym), a fun space with pool, darts, a touch tunes jukebox, and a kitchen serving late.
Is there a better way to Fall into the season than watching skaters beat the stuffing out of each other, with a side of popcorn? We didn’t think so. See you there!
