Crab feed fuels fastpitch team

By Jack Kintner

The Blaine Force girls’ fast-pitch softball program gets underway this weekend with a benefit crab feed and dance at the Dakota Creek Roadhouse. “For $20 you can have coleslaw, garlic bread, a soft drink or a beer and all the crab you can eat, plus the good feeling that comes with supporting both our teams,” said coach Mike Dodd. Doors open and dinner begins at 6:30 p.m.

Both teams? That’s right. This year a junior Force team for girls from 6th through 8th grade has been added to the summer program in addition to the high school team which is entering its eleventh season. Both will play in the Whatcom County girls’ summer fast pitch league and will begin training in June. Rob Adams, Tim Walter and Mike Galbraith will be coaching this season in addition to Dodd and his brother Steve.

At 9 p.m. the “Rockerfellas” will play classic rock, “just good old rock and roll, with none of that new stuff that rips out your speakers,” said Dodd. The band, formerly known as the DDTs, is comprised of Tim Walter, Dave Chapman and Dave Swartos. .
