Dodgeballers and Friends of Dodgeballers Don’t Forget to Come To The Farm Wednesday Night To Pick Up Your Dry- Fit Technical T-Shirts and Registrations Bring Your Uniforms for Approval and Get In The Harlem Shake Video we’ll be taping Wednesday night!

The event itself will be held at YMCA Camp Spindrift in West Gloucester. They have an ideal facility to accommodate this event as it grows. Parking will be at nearby Wingarsheek Beach and there will be a shuttle between the parking lot and Camp Spindrift.

On Wednesday, March 13th at 7pm there will be a COMPETITOR’S PRE-EVENT MEETING at the Farm Bar & Grille in Essex, MA (233 Western Ave). The purpose of this meeting will be to give the athletes their tshirts and wristbands, as well as go over the rules of play and verify athletes’ age and make sure swimwear is all legal. At least one person from each team should be present. The idea here is to make everything run smoothly on the day of the event.

The Farm Bar & Grille and Good Morning Gloucester together with YMCA Camp Spindrift present the 3rd annual outdoor bikini/speedo dodgeball tournament to benefit Next Step, a charity that provides aid to children and young adults with life threatening illnesses (www.nextstepnet.org)

Muffy White’s Muff Riders Captain Tad Is Gunning For The Competition In This Year’s GMG/ Farm Bar and Grille Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament At Spindrift

There’s not much more that repulses me more than double denim but if I had to say there was something, it would be a hairy dude wearing a double denim cutoff denim shirt/denim speedo combination.

Makes me want to throw up a little bit in my mouth.

That being said if you don’t think Muffy’s Muff Riders are bringing the heat, you’ve got another thing coming.

I hope to see you all there on March 16th to support your favorite Dodgeballers and or charity- Next Step.  An organization that makes life better for young adults afflicted with life threatening diseases.

Wanna Talk About Class? Ryan and Wood Distillery Has It In Spades

I knew the Dodgeball rosters would get filled quickly and we would round out the 20 team brackets in a day or so.

Even though Ryan and Wood didn’t get a team submitted this year Bobby Ryan emailed to tell me that he still wanted to help sponsor the 2013 GMG/Farm Bar and Grill Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament at Camp Spindrift.

That’s what you call being a community organization.  that’s what you call class.

Ryan and Wood Beauport Vodka, Knockabout Gin, Folly Cove Rum.  If you’re not drinking the highest quality spirits made locally or anywhere you’re doing a major disservice to your liver.

The Kids That The GMG Farm Bar and Grille Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament Helped

Aria McElhenny writes-

Hi Joey, Frankie and Ryan,

As the weather starts to get chilly, here at Next Step we all start thinking about one thing: bikini & speedo dodgeball.

Thought you guys and the 2012 tournament participants might like a reminder of how their hard work raising funds at the tourney had an amazing impact on teens with cancer. The video below is from our summer youth conference for teen cancer survivors. These youth spent four days together learning how to manage their disease, laughing, riding a zip line and sharing their stories. The music in the video is an original song written by the youth and recorded at the conference.

Way to go dodge-ballers, you changed a lot of lives this year.

Thanks again from all of us at Next Step,

Aria McElhenny
Development Director

John McElhenny Gets Us The Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Coverage Videos From FOX and CBS

Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Coverage on Boston TV stations

Joey,

I thought people might be interested in the clips of the Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament that ran on Boston television stations.

Here is the segment that ran on WBZ Channel 4.

Here is the segment that ran on FOX 25 TV=

The FOX clip has a nice interview with Noah from The Farm Bar & Grille. But the best part is the impromptu dance party in the same clip by my friends Heather Fraelick and Gina Briguglio. Somebody call Dancing with the Stars!

CBS Boston Covers TheGMG/Farm Bar and Grille Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament And Huge Props Go Out!

Huge huge props to the players, the sponsors, the SPECTATORS, the Farm staff, to www.NextStepnet.org , to our photographers the Rabbit, Kim Smith, Donna Ardizzoni, Craig Kimberley and David Cox, to media coverage from Fox News, CBS and Desi Smith from The Gloucester Daily Times, to my boy Frankie Gwynne, fantastic organizer Rebecca Linquata, Ryan Cox, Noah Goldstein, THE MAN Matty K on the music and someone that worked somewhat silently throughout the whole day and deserves a lot of recognition as well, Brad Atkinson who made sure everything was handled professionally operations wise.

Honestly everyone worked in concert and without one single element of that whole equation the event wouldn’t have been half of what it was. The whole thing just spiraled toward the sky with positive energy throughout the day with the fans feeding off of the music feeding off of the players feeding off the smoothness of the awesome Farm Staff feeding off the backing by the sponsors feeding off Bill from Next Step who as the head of that organization steps up to the mike and proceeds to tear away his sweats to belt out the National Anthem wearing nothing but his speedo and tie.

Good on all of you who came out and supported it- each and every one of you played a major role in its success!

(anyone know if that cameraman from Fox got laid?)

I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE THE VIDEOS!!!!!

Video- Mr Bentley From Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Squad "Ass With Class" Is Giving Back To The Littles, Tourney Rules and Brackets

Rules of the 2012 bikini/speedo Dodgeball tournament

All 5 team members will start by lining up against the back of their side of the court,
5 balls will be distributed across the center line (2 large kickball style balls, and 3
smaller “stingers”)

On the ref’s whistle, teams can race to the center to claim the balls; those who get balls
must retreat to the back wall again before throwing their first ball. Balls thrown before
that will not count.

Balls that bit the ground first or the side of the court are dead, and do not count for outs if
they then hit a player.

If a player is holding a ball, they can use it to block other balls thrown at them.

If you are hit by a ball or your throw is caught cleanly by a member of the opposite team,
you are out, and must immediately stand in the side court area in the order you were hit.

If a player catches a ball, one player from their team who is already out in the side court
area can come back in the game. (follow the order of outs, the first one who was out is
the first back in, etc.)

No head hunting. Balls thrown at the face will not count as outs and the thrower will be
warned.

Balls that fly out of the court will be retrieved and returned to the side of the court where
they went out of bounds.

Once all 5 players from a team are out, the match is over.

This is a great event for a great cause… have fun!!

Late-breaking news: MAC ups the ante!

Joey, this news just came over the wire about Sunday’s event.

Late-breaking news: MAC ups the ante!

This just in: Manchester Athletic Club has upped the ante for Sunday’s Bikini-Speedo Dodgeball event, doubling the entry fee for Muffy White’s Hot Mess team that will benefit Next Step.

Just as bets before a horse race flow toward the favorite, the smart money before this Sunday’s event is lining up behind the Hot Mess squad. The MAC had held back on making its support public in an effort not to intimidate the other teams, especially the other so-called “gyms” in the event.

Frankie "The Liberty Bullet" Gwynne Is Ready To Lead Team Red, White and Blue Balls Deep Into This Year’s Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament!

You may remember this Dodgeball phenom from last year’s Bikini Speedo Dodgeball tournament when our boy Frankie debuted as “The Silver Bullet” but came up short in his quest for Dodgeball immortality.

But this year Frankie has re-focused and “re-branded” if you will as “The Liberty Bullet” and vows to lead his “Red White and Blue Balls” DEEP into the tournament.

Come on Down To The Farm Bar and Grille Sunday For What Will Be The Funnest Day You’ll Have All Year. 

Ryan Cox has already put together a reduced price outdoor menu featuring the Farm’s incredible pulled pork sandwiches and more!
