Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver Doug Baldwin and defensive lineman Red Bryant will meet the public during a free event on Thursday, July 11, at Bellingham’s Best Western PLUS Lakeway Inn & Conference Center.
Baldwin, Bryant and members of the Seattle Sea Gals dance squad are representing the Seahawks during the team’s 12 Tour this summer. They will be signing autographs and posing for photos in the Lakeway Inn’s ballroom from 5-7 p.m. A highlight video from the NFL team’s 2012 season also will be shown. Food and beverages will be available for sale in the lobby and ballroom.
The two Seahawks and the Sea Gals will also mingle customers at Poppe’s 360 Neighborhood Pub, also inside the Lakeway Inn, from 7-9 p.m.
“We’re pleased to partner with the Seattle Seahawks in making this free family friendly event featuring two of their popular players open to the public,” said Larry MacDonald, general manager of the Lakeway Inn, in a press release. “Since we’re expecting a large crowd, we encourage people to arrive early and enjoy a classic car show in our parking lot.”
The Seahawks also are hosting a free Gatorade Junior Training Camp from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, July 12, at Bellingham’s Civic Stadium. The camps are limited to the first 230 children, ages 7-14, registered at www.Seahawks.com. A parent or guardian is required to complete the registration form.
Baldwin was the fourth-leading receiver for the Seahawks last season, catching 29 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns. The 6-foot-4, 323-pound Bryant is renowned as the anchor of the team’s defensive line.
