Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? Last year over chicken wings at the Farm it hit me. We had an opportunity to do something that’s never been done before and have an absolute blast doing it. The Farm, if you haven’t already been there has a huge back yard just off it’s patio which is set up for volleyball in the summer.
All we need to do is register teams and it was a no-brainer great time. So when Ryan Cox contacted me to ask me when we were going to get it done I looked at the forecast and it calls for 6 inches of fresh powder for Friday- the perfect set up for The First Annual Bikini and Speedo Dodgeball Tournament!
Now there is absolutely nothing better than when you can accomplish a win/win. But when you can pull off the win/win/win/win it’s the best of all worlds.
Think about this
- We get to Raise Money To Save Boobs- Win
- People get to witness the spectacle of a lifetime- Win
- The Participating teams get their names mentioned with great publicity- Win
- Everyone has a blast-Win
Now I’ve contacted several local restaurants and we have 3 local Gloucester teams Confirmed. The Farm is fielding two teams and there is already word that there may be two teams from Salem bars.
The response has been overwhelmingly positive in the very little time since pulling the trigger (last night at 5PM) with most of the local restaurants that I contacted telling me they would get a team together. However I’m just going to put this out there that there was one local restaurant that I called and the woman I spoke with acted as if it was completely ridiculous and there was no way that she would play in a Bra and Panties Dodgeball tournament.
Now Really. It’s not like we are asking men and women to wear G-Strings. You can find Bra and Panties that cover up way more than you see every day of the summer at Good Harbor Beach. Who the hell would want to patronize a bar whose owner is so uptight that they couldn’t grasp the fun of a Bra and Panties Dodgeball Tournament and on top of that, Who the hell would want to patronize a bar which didn’t support Breast Cancer Awareness?????
It’s going to be a whole lot of fun.
So who want’s in on the GMG team? Sharon? EJ? Meg Lee?Alicia? David Cox? Thom Falzarano? Paulie Walnuts? Sarah Kelley? We need a team of five and at least 2 women. Also it doesn’t only have to be contributors, we can have our regular commenters on the squad as well. I personally will sponsor the entry fee for our GMG Team out of the TShirt money fund.
If your business or group of friends would like to field a team contact Ryan Noah or Bradley at the Farm- firstname.lastname@example.org
Huge thanks to the Boys at the Farm!
The event is now renamed Bikini and Speedo Dodgeball Tournament.
