Dodgeball - Freedom Edition

  • Jul 21, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Time to relive elementary school recess by hurling projectiles at each other!  We'll bring the balls. The grass will already be there so don't bring your own!  Bring your A-game instead!

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!

 

** FOOD **  This will also be a potluck so say what you're bringing in your RSVP. JDMorgan Park has grills available if you need.

Ideas for healthy and tasty noms to bring:

  • protein finger foods (meatballs/chicken fingers/nuggets) cuz we need to re-energize
  • salads
  • pasta
  • sandwiches
  • healthy snacks
  • liquids (water)

 

We'll also need people to bring :

* Extra folding tables (or picnic blankets)
* Large coolers
* Ice or ice packs for coolers
* Camp chairs (for teams that are waiting)
* And don't forget water bottle/sunscreen/sunglasses for yourselves

Here is a running list of what people are bringing:

  • Pete - balls, lines, cones, whatever else is missing
  • Hank/PT - balls, cups, plates, napkins, utensils
  • Mark L - Chocolate and roast chicken!
  • David A - Bacon and cabbage. Chairs and swords
  • Eric - soda and berries
  • Jasmin - variety of cupcakes
  • Eli - veggie platter
  • UnemployedKoopa - 7UP
  • jose - tbd
  • kendrick - yummy blondies, bags of crushed ice
  • Jon H - cooler and food
  • JJJ - plastic ware
  • daniel kim - ddeokboggi-lasagna (probably)
  • Xing - dumplings
  • Benny - California rolls
  • Tom - Gatorade
  • JR - cooler, water, foldout table
  • Jonathan H - TBD
  • Brandon - KFC
  • Tristan - TBD

 

Quotes from the prequels ...

  • I look like a lobster and my body is beat up and sore... but had a blast with everyone
  • 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 :)
  • Oh Boy. So much awesome.
  • 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. :)

 

** RSVPs/No Shows ** 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. If you've signed up to bring foods/drinks and you no-show, there may be starving/dehydrated geeks - not cool!  People that habitually flake from our events will be auto-dropped in advance (yes, we keep track).

We also keep track of people who no-show, and you will be marked for it.  Those who have a history of no-shows will be banned from future dodgeball events.  Please keep your RSVP up to date.

 

Here is an awesome map to assist in finding the group at the park.
