day 1478 – obyf social

another casual but always entertaining obyf end of season party. play as a team on the court, every one for themselves when playing exploding kittens. before we know it, the eight of us have been together for eight seasons going on nine. it’s amazing how obyf has developed into an iconic wednesday team. playing with this bunch has been so rewarding because we’ve never had a bad season no matter where the standings put us. we’ll be taking another run for another title

day 1326 – queen’s tournament 

kings and queens is by far the best tournament i’ve ever been to. the level of play was really high as all eight teams were stacked in both brackets. the atmosphere and competitive level was like tier 1 playoffs, only much more spirited. i had a blast playing at this tournament; i’m really proud of the team’s play. i’m just happy to be on the court even if it took layers of gauze and tape to cushion the underside. it didn’t feel great inside my shoe and the mobility was limited, but i played well while still being cautious

 

day 1289 – all girls team

week one of six girls coming together, all with sound dodgeball fundamentals. i had a great time at dodgeball tonight and racking up wins with executed teamwork. although i didn’t make nearly as many catches, i had the arm going throwing out at least a dozen players. this has to be one of my top vdl moments in my many seasons of dodgeball; one that had a lot of laughter and positive vibe. tiering up is just a matter of time. there’s a lot to look forward to for this season

day 1231 – whistler village

sleeping in on day three and final day of whistler getaway. before i go, i wanted to make sure to pay another visit to the olympic rings in the village. as much as i wanted to climb it, it’ll have to wait until next time. driving back to vancity was not fun with an irritated eye, but made it back to home. it was a weekend full of everything and now must get ready to grind again; my workaholic life resumes

dodgeball at pubs

photo proof of this season’s unforgettable night at the pubs. i had a blast at rdl’s skittles pubnight and vdl’s pirate pubnight featuring lots of food, games, raffles, puns and not to be forgotten – the booze. it’s always a good time hanging out with other players i wouldn’t normally get a chance to see or play against. it’s also the place where team bonding happens because things can get a little wild

day 1200 – pirate night

image
vdl goes pirate for this season’s pubnight. i’ve stayed away from spiked drinks for much of the year, but pubnight is usually the only time i allow myself to drink some. taking a few shots early on with the team and then marcom department. i was definitely feeling over the top for a while, but had to sober up quickly to continue some exec duties. i was skeptical about going before, but luckily didn’t miss this season’s main event. i thought i could brush it off the downer feeling, but once again, i’m reminded that priorities are not set equal

day 1193 – skittles night

image

rdl execs hard at work getting ready for project skittles pubnight. rdl is still young and growing, but this is the biggest pubnight yet. yelling over drunk and sober rowdy people all night long isn’t recommended; i got home and realized my throat is dry and scratchy. regardless, it was a fun night just getting together with the league and getting to know people that i have seen but never really met. even won a bottle of barbecue sauce to take home with me. i’m disappointed that the priorities wasn’t there, but sometimes it’s better to find out than to never realize where you stand
