Play Whirlyball

To update everyone, I have taken over hosting the Whirlyball Event and need a confirmed number of participants.  I am fronting a required $150.00 deposit for the 1st hour of play that is NOT refundable (we are scheduled for 2 hours totally $300.00).  As it stands now with 35 attending, it will cost $8.57 per person and you will play at least twice. With 40, the cost drops down to $7.50.  This is a family friendly event also, so please feel free to sign up any children/teens 9 years and older.

Please arrive at 10:45am for training and to sign release forms.  I hope everyone can still participate.  Also, due to such a great response and for those of you who can't make this event, we will be repeating it in early 2013!

Please address any questions you may have to me.

Thanks!

 

"Just when you think you've run out of new games to play, along comes WhirlyBall. And it's a gas! It could be the quickest 13 minutes you've ever spent...

WhirlyBall is a combination of jai alai, basketball and hockey, using a machine you're more apt to see at an amusement park.

The object is to take a whiffle ball from one end of the floor to the other and hit a 15-inch target cut out of a backboard that is suspended about 10 feet above the floor..."

10 players at a time. Reservations required.

    A huge thankyou to everyone who attended and made this event such a success!! Special thanks to Wendy for organizing all the teams!! I'm going to look into Laser Tag as well and we will repeat this event the early part of next year.

    Thanks to Theresa and her assistant Wendy for a fun organized time. We all got to play. I guess being a whirlyball mechanic is a full time job.

      Jan, glad you are able to make it, its a great group of people!

    Whirlyball is basically riding around in the Dodgem cars on a metal floor. Clearly it's fun to plow into someone you know and cause a whiplash. The "court" itself is like a basketball floor. On either end is a metal backboard. You get points by hitting the metal board and even more if you hit the hole in the center of it. It's a plastic whiffle ball that rolls around on the floor and you scoop it up with this long cured plastic scoop (cesta in jai alai). IT'S A BLAST!

    Post Whirly Ball we can head over to the Winking Lizard and watch the Browns game. If it's sunny we can watch the game on their heated patio.

    I sent out a revised email to update everyone, but just in case you didn't receive it, please read the updates above in bold. Since the cost and amount of time we rent the courts depends on our attendance, I am asking everyone to please update your RSVP if you can't make it. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

    Theresa, do we wait until after all the games are done to pay you?

    I'm not an organizer so I can't make any changes to this event, but I just called the facility and they have 2 courts open on Nov 18th from 11a-1pm that could accommodate us. Is everyone still in?

    November 13, 2012

      That's OK with me.

      I'm sorry Julie, I don't ever remember a 1-3 time slot being posted. When I called them today, they only had 11-1 left. I'm sure we will do this again.

    I called over there today. It will be a total of 40 people, 8 games total over a 2 hour reserved court time at 14 minute intervals or games, each 10 will get to play twice during the 2 hours, and it will cost about $ 7.50 per person if a solid 40 sign up and play. FYI. November 18th is open for a whirly ball court from 1 PM to 3 PM. Let me know about Nov. 18th to lock in court from 1PM to 3PM.
