Dodgeball is On!

Our wonderful member April has offered up this event. Yay!

We had so much fun in August at our Dodgeball meetup. About 40 fun women came by to zip softball sized foam filled balls at each other. Some stayed on the sidelines to watch the action. There was a lot of laughter, joking around and general good times. As a bonus, all players got a good, fun workout.

Come to my martial arts studio and join us for the next one. We have many variations on the game to keep it lively! We'll play till we feel done then grab a bite to eat close by.

Some people have asked about bringing kids. Carmen brought her son on several occasions and he worked in with us just fine (he's rather good at it!) So if you have a sturdy kid you'd like to bring that won't slow us down in our enthusiasm for throwing full speed at, then that will be fine.

Hope to see everyone there!

    Sorry ladies, I can't make dodgeball. I have an 8 millimeter kidney stone and I need to rest my body!!! ARG!! It is so painful!! Anyway, it won't keep me away from Karaoke so if you are free after dodge ball, come to KDBs at the Pike in LB. Karaoke starts after 9pm. Come sing with me! Oh, good news... beer is a diuretic for the erethra??? Miss you, Jody! So bummed. Apparently I am getting old... but I am only 41!

      I'm thinking we'll play until 8:30 or so and then go out for a drink. This is an approximation. Hope to meet you
