Dodgeball (casual play, no cost)

You don't need to put together a team, just show up.  You don't need to even be good, just come have fun.  You don't need to invent your own war cry to strike fear into your opponent's soul, but it helps.

These games are not exclusive to Meetup.com... anybody can join (but they are 21+).  We usually play 'til about 8:30 or 9:00.

Pictures and any last minute schedule conflicts will always be on Facebook so you should join up there also.

    had a fair amount of fun! there was less social interaction than I was hoping, and I felt like I couldn't connect to people because of that, but I'm sure if I come back regularly I'll get to know folks. I did leave early, but I'll probably be back.

    was a little bothered by the "small balls" rule; many women were throwing with a lot of arm power, and the small balls were kinda scary when thrown by them - I'd have preferred if the smaller balls were either not in play at all, or were limited by arm strength, not something that predicts arm strength badly like gender :<

    perhaps people could get big, brightly colored wristbands that give them permission to throw those balls, based on guesstimated arm strength? but really, that doesn't seem like it'd work very well, it'd probably be the most egalitarian to simply not have any some-folks-only rules...

    Hey this looks like a fun meetup. Are chess players welcome to join?

      Of course they are. I will use them as my pawns. With me being the one true dodgeball king, and the many rookies that play, there are quite a few parallels now that I'm thinking about it.

    You wouldn't hit a man with a ball that had his back turned to you would you?

      Well I won the Cheap Shot Award last year, so yes I definitely would; I get disgusting satisfaction from something like that. :)

    Dodgeball is a blast. Do you ever play at tennis courts further south? There are some nice ones in Draper.

      A couple folks come from as far as American Fork and Tooele, but most of the people that play regularly live more central to where we play.

      I'm certainly not opposed to a game further south once in a while though. Maybe i'll plan one at some point and see what the RSVP numbers look like. But you should get out of the Draper bubble and come play a game with us some time. :)

    Having intentions of coming, but have an interview at work that afternoon, so my attendance depends entirely on how late that runs.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
