I started a thread about this at the AX ezboard. Anyone interested in a game of dodgeball? Cosplayers and non-cosplayers would be welcome - although the costume would have to be relatively easy to move around in. We're in the process of setting it up.

The thread is here:

When are you planning on doing this? I wasn't clear, from the thread, whether it was going to be at/just before AX, or now, or what. lol. I'm totally in if it's while I'm in CA, but otherwise . . . stupid big country. :P

I'm pushing for Thursday, first day of AX - either early, before the dealer's hall opens or maybe later, when more people are there. It's not decided yet, but we have plenty of time. ^^;

Sweet, it'll be AT AX. I'm happy. :D (I was always the "last man standing" back in school, lol.)

Guess someone needs to talk to staff types about it? Though I saw that Gozer was on board, so that's a start. ^^

I was hoping one of the staff would give my a thumbs-up or down when I first made the thread, but since I haven't heard anything, I'm hoping it'll be alright.

I'll be using my Haro - it's one of those cheap green balls from Toys R Us. I think some other people might be bringing some other ones.

It seems I should be wearing my costume with the most armor.... hmmm or I can just wear Tidus and pretend I'm playing blitzball. That means I should learn how to do a sphere shot. Wait no a Ject Shot. heheheh the madnesss (okay someone take me away now!!!)

*L* Just remember to find a safe place for your props and stuff. And try to keep sharp objects away from the ball. :P No use in popping it. xX

Alll joking aside, sounds like a lot of fun, I will be there for sure.

just do it like after the ff gathering, that way there'll be some tidus' and wakkas' ready to go.

We could. But I don't really want to be running around setting up games on multiple days. ^^; There's other things I'd like do besides setting up dodgeball. Besides, if it's right after the FF gathering, that means probably be a lot of people wanting to play - meaning more than one game running at the same time. It'd be a nightmare with overcrowding. xX;

I was thinking we could divide people up by non-cosplayers vs cosplayers. What do you guys think?

Alright. ^^ I'm seriously thinking about setting up two games tho. It'll be easier, but the rules (I'm thinking them up) will be different depending on the size of the teams.

Here's a cut and paste from the AX board

<Edit> Wyna Hiros (my sister) has volunteered to make a simple website to put all the necessary info on. I think we're going to need multiple games, since it sounds like a lot of people are interested - however, it'll probably be one game after another, not multiple ones at once.

As for the site - I'll organize the info. I'm thinking that I'll probably ask people to sign up, just to keep everything organized.

Wyna has told me she'll start on the web site this weekend. I'll probably make a list of people who've signed up after that. I realized we're gonna need to be really organized to get this done right. ^^; Otherwise it's gonna be a mess.

Dodgeball. Sounds like fun..

Hmm, maybe those days of forced PE and pegging other childern with a big rubber balls way back in elementary will pay off.

Wow, that was SUCH a LONG time ago...
... it'll only be more interesting to do this in a costume... ^_^

Looking forward to it. Just tell me when and where and i'll be there...
... "with open arms and open eyes yea..."
