Bring the pain Fridays makes their return for 2014! It is once again time for our weekly appointment to ... Dodge. The. Ball.

If you don't know, now you know ...

If you've never played the game of dodgeball as a kid you must have grown up on Mars. But as a quick primer, it's a game in which players on two teams throw large balls at each other while avoiding being hit themselves. That's it. And no athletic skill is necessary!

If you haven't played the game in 20 years, here are the general rules we will be using with a few modifications: Dodgeball Rules

A $3.00 organization fee will be collected at this event, your host is in the running for hardest working person on meetup.

The important stuff ...

• This is a co-ed game so ladies don't be shy to sign up. And it doesn't matter if you have no athletic ability, you just have to be willing to have a little fun.

• Dress for physical activity! You'll be dodging and running so wear your sneaks, shorts and a t-shirt.

• Rain or similar un-favorable weather cancels the meetup. Not!

• Check the meetup site before leaving for last minute updates as well as my mobile phone number.

• Please DO NOT RSVP if you do not seriously plan to attend as space is limited. No flakes allowed! If you RSVP and I notice that you have a number of no shows or have a history of last minute cancellations, you will be removed.

• Sorry, no guests allowed for this one.

    Guys, regarding the weather -- we won't play in the rain. The forecast is calling for things to dry up by early afternoon though which would be perfect. If the weather is still questionable later this afternoon,I'll make the decision to cancel this event or not by 4PM. Check back here to check the game status before you head over to the court. I've lugged all this equipment with me today to the office and I'm going to make every effort to use it.

  • Kevin

    Ballers, just a few items to keep in mind. When you get to the court, come and SEE ME directly. The faster I get everyone signed in, the faster we can start. Also, please bring small bills for the meetup fee.

    A few more quick items to know:

    1) We pick teams, play a best of three series, then pick new teams. This keeps things fun.

    2) This is a game of honor -- please, no arguing about being out, accept your fate and leave the game gracefully. If there is a dispute, I as the Dodgeball Commissioner have the final say.

    3) Most of us will be coming from work Bring an appropriate set of athletic clothes and shoes to change into at your office. It never works out very well trying to play in a button down shirt, trousers, and dress shoes.

    4) My mobile number is[masked]-9034. Contact me if you have a problem finding us. If you just want call to see how my day went, you can talk to me in person at the court.

    We will go over the rest of the rules before we start play -- let's get it on!

    May 8, 2014

  • Arlela Smith B.

    Do we start right at 6 pm, I might be 5 minutes late depending on the trains

    May 8, 2014

    • Kevin

      It'll take a few minutes to get everyone signed in, make teams, and go over the rules.

    Hi Kevin. This was my first event I was syked to attend but just scored FREE theatre tickets. I will change my RSVP ASAP so someone on the wait list can take my space. Don't have too much fun without me.

    Mike, thanks for the heads up. The next game is already scheduled for 5/23 if you want to sign up.

    Everyone else, if you are not 100% for this game please change your RSVP. No shows don't fly for my events, especially games where we need enough people for teams. No shows will be blacklisted from attending my future events. Thanks.

    • Kevin

      We play until dark.

      May 5, 2014

  • Kevin

    Waitlisters, there looks to be a full crowd for this event. The next dodgeball game is scheduled for 5/23, be sure to go and sign up for that event if you still want to play.

    May 3, 2014

  • Kevin

    People, just a heads up -- I take attendance seriously, especially at events where we need enough people on hand to make teams. If you don't seriously intend to come, and on time, please change your RSVP now. No shows are weak sauce and doing that will get you blacklisted from future events of mine.
