The first annual Snowmass Village Recreation Center Dodgeball Tournament was held this past Saturday night, with five well-dressed teams participating in the mayhem. After a best of three games, five-team round robin and then best of three games single-elimination bracket, team Redneck Wonderland was the last team standing, while the others were exhausted but with big smiles on their faces and many stories to tell. Thank you to all the high-energy participating teams: Gravy, Guts, Little Baby Bear Cubs, Balls Deep, and Redneck Wonderland. A huge thank-you to the ADAA certified official Greg Conroy for refereeing and keeping an eye on those cheaters. Thank you to Ann Larson for covering the event. Thank you to Peter Nardi and Nardis Restaurant for the after party for all players to mingle and spread the camaraderie. Cheers to the staff and amazing facility of Snowmass Recreation Center for being the venue for the shootout. We cannot wait to hold it here again. Until next year, look for the footage on ESPN 8, the Ocho for telecast times. Thank you for the laughs and memories, it was a very successful event and will become an annual event. Please call me at 922-2240 if you did not receive a tournament T-shirt or you want any photos or videos of the event, they will be posted on our web site http://www.snowmassrecreation.com.
