Amateur Boxing:

White Salmon's Mt. Adams Elks Lodge will be the site of USA Amateur Boxing bouts this Saturday, April 23, starting at 5 p.m.

Admission is $10 at the door and seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis.

"There's no reserved seating but really there isn't a bad seat in the house," said promotor Ricky Marx of the Elks Lodge venue, which is located at 124 Church St.

Marx said the boxing card is like a "smoker," with no definite number of bouts set, though he added there could be anywhere from 10-15 fights.
