Trampoline Dodge Ball, Part 2!

For the first time in recorded history, a Groupon has actually worked to benefit a business! That might be a slight exaggeration, but the only reason Katie and I went to this place in the first place is because she bought a Groupon, and then asked me to set up an event for it after the fact. Well, not only did that event pull in hundreds of dollars for the place, but I actually want to go again, and I’m willing to pay full price for it. Yes, Jim S paying full price for something, what the heck’s going on here? But it was, as many can be quoted as saying or writing, “fun as hell,” and most people who went last time begged me to set up another one, and those who weren’t able to go the first time nagged me even more. The public demands it!

Here’s the plan this time around: we should all show up no latter than 12:45 to buy our timeslots (which only work in half hour increments), and be ready to jump as a group at 1PM. Because it’s only a little bit more money for the extra half hour, I think I’ll buy the 1-2:30PM time slot and take a few more breaks. You are, of course, free to come and go and buy any time slot you want, but I hope you’ll join me for the group jump.

Last time started rough, but we soon ended up with not one, but two private dodge ball rooms, one for official games and one for practice. In addition, there is a huge room just for jumping, a foam pit, bounce basketball, and more. (Actually, I think that’s it.)

Poker Saturday followed by a bouncy Sunday afternoon…another awesome weekend to look forward to!

There will be an option of going out afterward as a group for lunch, but I’m not yet sure where that should be. Although I was very disappointed by the fact that the “alligator” restaurant we went to last time was farther away than promised and hardly had any food left, including alligator, it was at that place that we finally figured out where our wedding and reception would be held, so it has some pretty awesome memories after all. Want to know a secret? I love meetup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh yeah, I did a video of one (almost) complete game. Anyone know how I can get it onto the photos page?

    Hello Everyone, this will be my first event. Do we need to make prior reservation or is everything done on entrance?

    March 2, 2013

    • Robert C.

      you just pay when you come in. See the posting for the the time slot. You pay and tell them what time you want and they print a label for you so its no issue to show up early

      March 2, 2013

  • David G.

    Family thing had come up, but I'm sure the waitlisters don't mind;-)

    March 2, 2013

  • Isabel

    Is there going to be a waiting list? I really want to attend this since I missed the last one.

    • Isabel

      I'm not sure if I'm well enough to jump but I have try it in order to see if it will "fix" everything lol

      March 1, 2013

    • Jim S

      you think jumping will fix you? interesting. if it fixed me, i could finally stop wearing condoms.

      March 2, 2013

  • Lupita

    I may stop by to see you guys.... Even if I don't jump, I'm sure it would be entertaining to watch. :-)

  • Matthew H.

    If anyone wants to check this out in advance, I am having a fundraising night to support my video production class tomorrow. That's Monday, Feb 18th from 8-midnight. Great thing to do after the Meet and Greet.

  • Trisha

    Is anyone else going from closer to the Windsor area? I wouldn't mind walking in with someone instead of having to try to find all of you new people..........perhaps we should wear yellow roses in our lapels?!?!?!

    • Robert C.

      the area you pay at and the bleachers are a small area, should not be an issue . but feel free to call when you get there my #[masked]

      February 16, 2013

    • Trisha

      Thanks!!

    See the link above for detail prices and info, but in short its $14 for an hour and $18 for 90 minutes. That includes shoes they provide for jumping. They have small and Med lockers for. 25 and. 50 . Note this wears you out Jim's idea of 90 minutes and taking more breaks is good.

    I just did a Groupon for SkyZone a couple weeks ago and it was a BLAST! I'm excited for the Dodge Ball. Do we have to specify that we are there for Dodge Ball? Or do we just sign up for the 1pm slot and then can go anywhere? Since I don't know anyone on this list, will there be a meeting location so that I'm sure to find everyone?

    February 15, 2013

    • Robert C.

      Just sign up for the times lot. Everyone has to have a safety briefing so we will all meet on the stands right out in front of where you get tickets. Look for anyone over 20 that's more then likely the meet up group.

      February 15, 2013

    • Tina B.

      Awesome! Thanks! :)

      February 15, 2013

  • Wakas

    OMG!!! Thank you so much for setting this up, I can't wait!

    February 15, 2013

  • Jim S

    wait, what the heck is going on here? what is this, a mixers dinner event? i posted this an hour ago and 20 are signed up?!?!?!!? check official for all details. but it's not cheap.

  • Stacy S.

    Yayy... I am so happy. I was bummed that I missed the last one:)

    Any idea how much this will cost? :)

    February 15, 2013
