day 1508 – dodgeballers unite


tournament of champions is not just any dodgeball tournament. of course there’s vdl, rdl, cdl, sdl, but it’s super cool to see teams from calgary, edmonton, toronto, victoria, seattle. through the round robin, my team was in the middle of the pack. we played well in the playoffs and went further than expected. we fell behind two games in two series, only to come back and win it. i made some good catches and snipes but what stood out with the clutch kill to avoid a fifth game showdown and push the team into next round

day 1459 – playoff sub

was originally going into tuesday playoffs to do exec duties, but ended up subbing in tier 3. we got far into the playoffs, but disappointed with the third place finish. nonetheless there’s a lot to take away from this playoffs. i was really pleased with my play as i was on my game. never have i made so many catches and three of them ended up to be clutch game winning catches. i hope to carry the momentum forward towards next week’s gstrings playoffs. my throat is really sore from reffing countless games

day 1215 – obwf playoff

we weren’t expecting to make it into tier 1 playoffs, but i guess we’ve proven ourselves enough this season to hang with the top teams. the outcome was the least of our worries; more importantly, we played as a team and gave them a run for their money. i have played with this team for seven seasons now and i have enjoyed every single one. i never want to leave this team but i might have to take a leave of absence from this team for season 23 as priorities for school come first

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

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 843 – formal outfit

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 794 – graffiti night

image

flashback to two seasons ago with a night well spent at vdl pub night. scribbling all over people’s shirts and being scribbled on both shirt and even skin. it’s a living proof that a little liquor can really change the perspective, action and vision of someone and things can really unravel in a big way no matter how tamed you try to be. uncertain whether scheduling will allow me to attend this year’s, but i am sure it will be a great one like all the ones that preceded this
