For July, we had two volunteers of the month voted in by our league members! This dedicated volunteer used to be a skating league member . . .
Time and time again, Mae K. Haste has shown her incredible dedication to BAD. When she was a league member, she held the position of co-manager of Events in which she helped orchestrate and make the magic of bout day happen. The amazing quality of our Event production was a direct result of her passion, hard work, and organizational skills. We miss Mae as a skater but thrilled to still have her around as a BAD volunteer and fan!

Watching the Berkeley Resistance win the championship game. When I first started watching BAD, I was a Resistance fan, so it was fantastic to be able to see them take the win!
