Dodgeball - Easter Bunny Slam Edition

  • March 31, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Time to relive elementary school recess by hurling projectiles at each other!  I'll bring the Easter themed playground balls and court lines. You bring your A-game!

Anyone can play from beginners to World Champions.  We will explain the rules, it’s safe (no head shots), and you’ll have so much fun that you won’t even realize you are getting an awesome workout!  Bring your friends… and your frienemies too… because, you know, it’s dodgeball!

This will also be a potluck so say what you're bringing in your RSVP. JDMorgan Park has grills available if you need.  We have plenty of people bringing drinks so ideas for tasty noms to bring: finger foods (meatballs/chicken fingers/nuggets), salads, pasta, fruit bowl, healthy snacks, sandwiches.

Quotes from the prequels ...

  • Awesome fun, thanks for organizing! It hurts to walk up and down stairs, but I'm sure all that will be forgotten come Dodgeball Part Tres :)
  • It is a great source of exercise which keeps you wanting one more game. This time we had about 6 games in a row when Pete called for last game.
  • right shoulder stiff legs chafed. walking like cowboy. would do it all again tomorrow if there was an opportunity :)
  • That was awesome. 5 hours of dodgeball fun with a lot of food breaks. A lot. :)
  • Did we really just play five hours of Dodgeball?

*** Note *** RSVPs close 2 days before the event. If you're going to RSVP yes and then drop 30 minutes before the event, that's just inconsiderate. The organizers volunteer our time and effort putting on fun events and it's tough to plan properly around mass flakiness. People that habitually flake from my events will be auto-dropped in advance (yes, I keep track).

      Looking at Google weather, says about a 70%-80% chance of rain in Campbell tomorrow :/

      March 31, 2013

    • TuxedoHank

      I'm ok with mudball, so long as it's not pouring. Lets see what things look like when I get up in a few hours.

    Sorry guys, but it turns out I have to work Sunday :( I really wanted to be there, too!

    March 29, 2013

  • TuxedoHank

    Weather forecast for Sunday is looking uncooperative. We'll play it by ear, and send out an official email early Sunday.

    As for now... anyone up for an impromptu game of Dodgeball tomorrow in Sunnyvale?!

    March 29, 2013

    • Molly

      I have work tomorrow, so I'm still hoping for Sunday...

      March 29, 2013

    • TuxedoHank

      Unless we wake up to puddles of mud at the park, Sunday is still on!

    Hello! Hope you all have fun - it looks like rain is going to be happening in the next few days (and possibly weekend) and Ofer and I are going to send you all fun happy thoughts from indoors!! We will definitely catch you next time.

    Fun Fact: In case someone isn't familiar with JD Morgan park, the parking on Budd really sucks! There's a big apt complex around so the side spots are always taken up, too. It's best to find a spot on the other side of the park near where we're meeting. I'm bringing my bike and parking on the outskirts. Can't wait!

    March 26, 2013

    • PT

      good to know! For those that are driving - we usually park in the parking lot closest to the meeting spot. It's at the very END of Rincon Ave, entrance is at the turn-about, under the pedestrian bridge.

      March 28, 2013

    • TuxedoHank

      i added a picture to the event description pointing out the parking lot.

    It's been brought to my attention that there is a chance of rain this weekend. I checked wunderground.com (http://www.wunderground.com/cgi...­), and currently, the forecast predicts 40% chance of precipitation on Saturday, and 20% chance on Sunday. We will make the evaluate the conditions early Sunday morning, and send out an email to let everyone know if the game is on. Should conditions on Sunday be unfavorable, we will reschedule Dodgeball to another date.

      I used to host beach bonfires in SoCal. Lots of equipment.

      March 26, 2013

    • PT

      cool! a large cooler would be good since people are bringing drinks. if we are able to snag some picnic tables then we may not need the table/chairs but you could keep them in you car just in case :)
