What day is today? Why, it's bring the pain Friday! It is once again time for us 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.

    Peeps, my mobile number is[masked], contact me if you have questions or issues tomorrow. I ask of you all just three things:

    1) Try and be on time, coming late throws a big wrench in the works and you short yourself on playing time.
    2) BRING WATER. The fountains in the park don't work and I don't want anyone dropping from dehydration.
    3) When you get to the park, come see me directly so I can sign you in -- please bring small bills for the meetup fee.

    Oh, and one more thing for the newbies, get ready to have a whole buncha fun.

    Ballers, if you are not 100% sure of your attendance for this game, please change your RSVP to NOT ATTENDING now. 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 and you really don't want to miss out on the fun. Thanks.
