News Flash: We just received this message from Michelle Grandy, Communications Director at Sustainable Connections. As the captain of their Traverse Company Team, Michelle brought the Be Local Bee team over to Winthrop last weekend to BE a part of the first annual Winthrop Traverse. Well, needless to say, they won 1st Place in their division.
“The Be Local Bee team had an excellent time at the Winthrop Traverse. Winthrop provides a beautiful backdrop for a challenging yet fun race. It was especially fun to meet new people as well as race against some hometown friends from Bellingham,” Grandy shared via email.
Grandy casually throws down a challenge at the end of her message, “We look forward to going back to the friendly town of Winthrop next year and feel extra motivation to try to keep our #1 spot at this year’s Bellingham Traverse in September. We hope to see everyone there. Who dares to challenge the Be Local Bee team?”
Do you see what she did there? She’s calling you and your A Team out to compete on your own Traverse Company Team to see if you can take the title in their hometown. Bring it ON! Show us what ‘cha got.
If you are up to the challenge, simply sign up your team or get in touch with Recreation Northwest for more details.
After you have accepted the challenge and want to let Michelle know you’re going to rattle the hive- reach out:
