As a non-profit, the B.ay A.rea D.erby Girls rely heavily on sponsorship to create the awesome experience that is a B.A.D. roller derby game. Betty Clock Her is our current Sponsorship Manager which means she is responsible for spearheading our current sponsorship projects and managing the sponsorship team. She is also part of our amazing NSO (Non-Skating Official) crew which diligently tracks the points and penalties for our skaters at bouts and scrimmages. In only her second season with B.A.D., Betty has become such an important part of our league and we thank her so much.
What do you do as a volunteer with B.A.D.?
I’m a part of our officiating crew and the Sponsorship Manager for the league.
Do you have a derby name?
Betty Clock Her.
What do you do for non-derby work?
I work in marketing in the video games industry. I’m kinda a nerd, like, a really big gaming nerd.
How did you become involved with our league? How long have you been with us?
I was a bit of stalker on the Reckless Rollers Google Group for about a year. Then I learned to skate in thePre-Rec class in 2013. I became an official because I’m apparently really good at fracturing my bones and I really wanted to get a better understanding of the game (and, you know, more broken bones).
Do you have a favorite part of being involved with BAD or derby in general?
Everyone involved in B.A.D. is extremely supportive, confident, and friendly. It’s awesome that someone like me who hadn’t been skating since they were 8 could suddenly be taken in to such a great group of gals (and guys!)–that’s what I love about it most.
Do you have a favorite derby moment or one thing you are most proud of?
I would say I’m most proud of taking our league and the Sponsorship Committee to larger sponsors (to be named later!) as well as helping launch our IndieGoGo campaign to find a new home (which, P.S., if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should).
If you had one super power what would it be? Would you use it for good or evil?
I’d love the ability to stop time. I’m not really a good or evil kinda person, but let’s go with chaotic neutral.
