The Brick House Betties roller derby team kicked off their 2016 season April 9 in Whistler at the World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Always close competitors, the hosts (Apex Pistols) won 168-139.

The Betties will play one home game at the Comox Sports Centre this year on May 7, in a doubleheader with Junior team, the Stone Cold Stellas.

The Brick House Betties will host a boot camp in Courtenay April 16-17 with coaches from the 2015 Champs team, Wheels of Justice, of Portland. An officiating camp for Refs and NSOs is also featured. The public is welcome to watch scrimmages from 3:45-4:45 at the CVSC both days as skaters and officials test what they have learned.

The Betties thank Discover Comox Valley, whose generous grant helped make the camp possible. People are also invited to meet and support the Brick House Betties at a Beer and Burger fundraising event Saturday, April 16 from 6-9 p.m. at the Mex Pub.
