GMGers Infiltrate Monster Rubber Duck HQ In Tsim Sha Tsui, Across Victoria Harbor from Hong Kong Island

Laurence Kent Jones submits-

Dear Joey,
I’m a U.S. Foreign Service Officer, married to Julee Allen.  We have a home off Washington St, and have been flitting in and out of Gloucester over the last several years while assigned and living overseas, first in Haiti and then in Hong Kong. 

We’ve very much enjoyed the VERY LARGE rubber ducky than has been moored off the Star Ferry terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui, across Victoria Harbor from Hong Kong Island.  The Hong Kong People have enjoyed it too, and there was always a large or larger crowd around it, gawking and wondering, but mostly, in the honored Asian tradition, taking pictures, especially of each other in front of the ducky with their cell phones and tablet computers. 

Since there’s been some interest in GMG, I’m sending a portfolio, including some pics of Julee and me representing and a bunch of B&W Infra-Red shots from my greatly modified big Canon.  Feel free to use as you see fit.  I hope you enjoy them in any case.  I do think the Monster Homey should come to Gloucester, but I gather the artist is being very cagey about the next stop…

2013 GMG/ Farm Bar and Grille Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Action Shots From David Cox

Once again I’d like to thank Rick Doucette and Camp Spindrift for being incredible hosts and for everything they did to make this event successful.

If you ever have a need for a spot for a corporate outdoor function, wedding or family reunion, Camp Spindrift is the perfect spot.  Contact Rick Doucette at the Cape Ann YMCA for details on how you can rent the facility.


I’m still having trouble processing just what went down yesterday.

First off we cannot thank enough Rick Doucette and his staff The Cape Ann YMCA for hosting this year’s tournament.  For their help setting up and with the transportation back and forth to the Wingersheek parking lot.  Camp Spindrift if you haven’t been there since you were a kid is the absolute perfect spot for a corporate outing, wedding, pig roast (next year during the tourney) or any other time you are looking for intimate space for your event.  Contact Rick at The YMCA to book your event at Camp Spindrift.

Then you gotta talk about the team that put this thing together over the past three months.  Frankie Gwynne has worked relentlessly pouring over the minute details and making sure everything ran smoothly, designed the flyers and T Shirts just a tremendous amount of thanks to Frankie.  Ryan Cox (AKA Mr Bentley) the MAN who just says yes, Can we do it?  YES, every time, organizationally Ryan made so much happen.  Brad Atkinson and the Farm Staff who set up the fields.

Matty K, the worlds Greatest DJ.  Soup, the Bracketologist who made sure we had the right teams lined up to go.

My co-contributors from GMG including super patient Kim Smith who shot the Harlem Shake video.  Craig Kimberley who shot and will undoubtedly bring the most entertaining Dodgeball video and interviews that anyone could ever produce, David Cox Brian O’Connor and Donna Ardizzoni who must have shot a gazzilion photos which y’all will see soon. My boy the Rabbit who shot lots of photos as well.

Desi Smith from the Gloucester Daily Times who took time out of a packed weekend to come cover the Tournament, CBS Boston who has a gallery from the event.

Bill Kubichek who graced us with the Evil Knevil speedo get-up and rousing National anthem to kick things off and Aria McElhenny from Next Step.

Lauren Mears from Jungle Silkscreening who got our t shirts printed way below budget and included high quality dry-fit technical t’s for the event.

Jen Amero who helped spread the word as well.

Hope I didn’t forget anyone, I probably did, my head is still pretty foggy.

But the event doesn’t take place without the competitors who brave the cold and donate their money to the cause.  Our competitors that take the time to plan their team’s themes , pick out their entrance music and put together their costumes.  It was just a whoooole lot of fun.

The Farm guys including Ryan Cox, Brad Atkinson and Noah Goldstein have created an incredible family of regulars who make that place special.  You walk into the Farm and no matter who is behind the bar you feel welcome, and like you’re part of the Farm Family-

Farmers for life.

Frankie Gwynne- You Are The Man!

Congratulations to two time back to Back Champions- Blinded By the White- sponsored by Ed Collard’s Housedoctor’s Handyman Services.

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.


These Team Uniforms make Brokeback Mountain Look Like A Rambo Movie

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.
