 NCRD hopes for competitive match, to renew “sibling rivalry” with Humboldt Saturday

The North Coast Roller Derby will be back at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Saturday for one last bout this season.

The Tsunami Sirens will host the Humboldt Roller Derby in the first meeting between the two nearby derbies since the start of the 2014 season.

“It looks like we are trying to get back into our sibling rivalry with them,” said Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko. “There is no reason that we shouldn’t be playing them all the time. I am expecting a good, hard-hitting bout. I am expecting it to be pretty evenly matched too.”

The Sirens got the better of Humboldt early last season with a hard-fought 169-160 victory — the Sirens first ever win over the club that sent skaters to Del Norte for the North Coast Roller Derby’s initial boot camp as the Sirens were first forming in 2011.


King of Clubs: Golf brings people together

Local charity golf tournaments are great fund raising events. Many non-profit organizations benefit tremendously from one day or multiple day fun competitions held on golf courses. Normally, charity golf events are formatted in a fun, easy way to attract as many people as possible to help the “cause.”

From local youth groups to older Emblems or Elks, many community members organize and come together in goodwill for the betterment of future generations. It is an important part of their efforts.

Recently, most notably in Del Norte County, there has been an increase in these events. CASA of Del Norte reported to me earlier this year, that their golf tournament held at Del Norte Golf Course is one of, if not, their biggest fundraiser of the year. The funds raised from that event went a long way in helping their positive advocacy program.

 Rough seas make ocean fishing difficult 

It was a good week for fishing on the Lower Klamath River as increased flows and cooler water helped to open up the spit, allowing new fish, mostly steelhead, to enter the river system. Rough seas make ocean fishing difficult on the Wild Rivers Coast, but stubborn sportfishermen were still able to have some success bottomfishing between bouts of swells.

 A pair of local teenagers got their first taste of official jet ski freeride competition on Aug. 8-9 on the Washington coast at the Grayland Open.

Joe Smith, 13, and Bailee Jones, 18, of Crescent City made the eight-hour drive north to Grayland for their first ocean freeride after both competed in a lake PWC race in Lakeview, Oregon earlier this summer.

Smith entered into the rookie class on a stand up watercraft and was able to perform the required maneuvers on Saturday to advance to the finals on Sunday where he took fourth place overall.
