Dodgeball Tournament Postponed
Event originally scheduled for this weekend.
Aching for some dodgeball? Unfortunately, you'll have to wait two weeks. The second annual Neighborhood Dodgeball Tournament, originally scheduled for this weekend, has been put off until May 19th.
The cause? Not enough teams signed up in time. The tournament will be held at Martin Luther King Park's rec center if enough teams can be found.
According to a flyer distributed by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the new deadline to get your team together is May 14.
With a bold red slash and a central image of a player sprawled on their back, you can almost hear the flyer whispering encouragement to potential players.
"Hint, hint," the poster seems to say, waggling its eyebrows in the direction of the sign-up form attached at the bottom of the page.
Park Board District Six Commissioner Brad Bourne and MPRB Superintendent Jayne Miller will also take part in the tournament. Check out our video, above, of last year's tournament, also featuring Bourne.
