day 1858 – wally gets married

partying it up at a special wedding with friends from both dodgeball family and softball family. it’s an occasion i would temporarily put my dietary needs on hold since one of my long time teammate, friend and brother is getting married. the dinner reception had wonderful speeches and capped off perfectly with gelato served. i have to rethink my eating tactic prior to consuming alcohol; what i had eaten tonight left my unprepared. i drank a few more than i intended to, but it i guess i should have expected it with an open bar.at least i drank responsibly since i was walking distance from home

day 1578 – wild wild west 

the atmosphere and theme at this pubnight was way better than last week’s. the food was at boston pizza was mediocre at most serving only pizza and fries, neither made me feel good after eating. the photobooth was a hit as it should be. although i was running around most of the night, i had a much better time running into and mingling with many. i got a chance to catch up with some old mates, talking and laughing at some of the old times. it’s great to see so many familiar faces at events like this

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 1193 – skittles night

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

day 955 – casino royale

suit up for casino royale kind of night for rdl pubnight. another successful pubnight down with a great turn out where dodgeballers unite coupled with an abundance of drinks, games, jokes and fun to be had. i had a few here and there, but consider those shots as compulsory shots that i cannot turn down. i did manage to turn down all the beer put my way, baby steps of learning to say no

day 837 – over the top

image

round two of pubnight was suppose to be a tamed one, but that never happened. had a tremendous night with little recollection of what happened. i do recall being at the photobooth and pouring beer up someone’s nose but anything beyond that was a little blurry. i was over the top so it wasn’t a night i could get home. crashed at a friend’s place for the night and had good company in a friend’s living room. it’s going to be interesting to see how functional i will be next day, keeping in mind i have a full lineup ahead of me

just an ordinary night with some ordinary people captured through a 35mm lens. fun times to be had over some food, beer and shots and definitely a night that i am thankful for. richmond dodgeball league has so many awesome people with great characters and personalities, sometimes it’s impossible to see that side during regular dodgeball nights. this is the perfect opportunity to mingle and socialize with those who i would be too shy to approach on a regular basis or those i had unintentionally neglected. a crazy night full of surprises and good laughs, even though i got home much later than originally intended because i was temporarily trapped in richmond to sober up. unfortunately or fortunately i missed out on late night snacking at no. 9, but rest assured i got home safe and sound
