It's back....and this time it's personal! Join us as we hit the ice for an epic battle of Broomball on
February 16, 2014 at the Galleria of Dallas.
For those that don't know, Broomball was invented by Canadians for some "in your face action" but you may like Wikipedia's definition a tad better: "Players hit a small ball around the ice with a stick called a "broom." The broom may have a wooden or aluminum shaft and has a rubber-molded triangular head similar in shape to that of a regular broom. Players wear rubber-soled shoes instead of skates, and the ice is prepared in such a way that it is smooth and dry to improve traction." "A typical game of broomball is broken up into two or three periods. The object of the game is to score goals into your opponent's goal/net. The team with the most goals at the end of a game is declared the winner. In some tournaments, if the scores are tied after regular time, an additional overtime period is played to determine a winner. In the overtime period (in most cases), six players, three on each team, play five minutes without a goalie. The team to score more goals in the overtime period is declared the winner. In the event of another tie, a second overtime period may be played. In some games a shootout period will be played. The shooter has the choice to have the ball placed a specified distance from the net or, like in hockey, can play the ball from center ice."
This will be our third year doing this, and it's always been a highlight of our meetup. It's fun, exhausting and just slightly dangerous. Although this event is capped at 24 people I always encourage anyone to come out and watch the fun. We'll head out and grab a bite afterwards.
