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 1200 – pirate night

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

day 997 – geek party

pubnight is every season’s biggest event and one that players look forward to every season. it’s the time i get to catch up with the many friends and foes on the court as well as meet some people i’ve never played against. it was professor mugs all over again just like last season, but with a geek party theme. got in there rocking my suspenders and nerdy glasses; it wasn’t much of a challenge for me since i am always geeking it out. i had a lot of fun; pubnights never disappoint

day 955 – casino royale

image

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 838 – post drink fest

image

the day after drinking so much is usually a painful one with all sorts of hangover syndrome. i expected nothing less this time around having down so much more than my intended limit, but i must say i feel like recovery is a lot better than rdl pubnight. it was a fully loaded day with taekwondo, teaching and dodgeball practice, but i was fully functional throughout. found some of the finest pictures posted from the drink fest, i now have a better glimpse of how the night went. the weekend full of actitivites is great but man, i’ve eaten pretty shitty and terribly wrong all weekend long

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

rdl pubnight: black and white party

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

day 816 – round of shots

originally wasn’t feeling up to going to rdl pubnight because i have been so bummed out with the happenings lately, but i am really glad i went out. initially going cause i felt the need to fulfill my exec duties, but it ended up to be a great night. the photobooth, the drinks, the amazing people, the chats, the yelling over the music – maybe not the yelling part because i now have a sore throat. had a few too many rounds of shots tonight, but i know that won’t bode too well during confession. despite being trapped in richmond in order to sober up, it was a great night with the rdl family and i hope everyone got home safely
