day 1299 – execustar

got my taste of execustar fielding all sorts of questions from these two. it makes me think about the many ways i’ve contributed and the amount of people i’ve come across through playing and volunteering in this league. my poor butt took two hard falls at skating today so that makes three in as many days. i think it’s time for that overdue physio appointment

day 843 – formal outfit

image

my outfit of the day going to the all important vdl 10 years celebration. this is a night i will remember because i am sober for the duration of the social. getting to see all the old faces who came before my time and helped guide this league into what it is ten years later. the growth of this league is amazing and it was only made possible because this committed group of people came together to build a community. i am truly happy to be a part of the building team because vdl has given me so much in return

day 553 – throwback pandas

image

first week of regular play for season 19 means exec duties even when i am sick as a dog. throwback to the hard throwing thunder panda days counting back seven seasons ago when we were fresh faces of the league. even though my panda team disbanded, it’s good to see that most of us are still involved on separate teams. to see how far i have come as a player and as an exec is quite a long trek not forgotten

day 546 – good showing at 101

image

you know the winter off season is officially over when dodgeball exhibition week is on. another full house for dodgeball 101 to get all the noobs up to speed for season 19. lots of brand new faces showed up to learn the game that seemingly has simplest objective but in reality has a lot of rules and tactics. at the same time new players are learning the game, i am improving my league operations skills and i feel much improved from last season already

day 504 – wednesday crew

image

quality time with the wednesday night crew eating, drinking, playing games and just chatting. who would say no to free food that we are entitled to based on the hard work we put in to run the weekly show. so much bad eating over the holiday season and the the bad news is there’s more bad eating to come. as weird as it sounds, i think i am sick of seeing food

day 501 – execs unite

image

hungry executives celebrating the completion of season 18 at water kitchen in gastown. vdl’s human resources surprised us all with christmas presents, as each of us was rewarded with a pair of the newest vdl apparel personalized with our own initials. must admit i am relieved that we are at the season’s end because this season has been really stressful balancing out all my commitments and tasks, i really need the extra time just to get away from my neverending commitments

day 305 – closing vdl season

image

pigging out with fellow execs at river rock buffet to close off a successful dodgeball season. a good opportunity to reward ourselves with the hard work everyone has put in throughout the season to make it as fun and as painless as it could be. total fail making a way to ginormous ice cream for myself, completely forgetting there’s a twist option in the centre between chocolate and vanilla
