Join the Crowd ...
That's right, when the Grand Pooh-Bah wasn't looking we snuck
Slapshot by him to its original 11 pm slot. Most of us
will be in bed by midnight anyway. You don't need to know how
to play ... your fellow tormentors - err players - will teach
you as you go along. Slapshot is just about having fun
and being silly. Rules just get in the way!
Welcome to the 17th annual Slapshot event - the 'unofficial'
end to WBC.
We'll be using the same format we have in the past - all options
except two divisions - just come in, sign up and find yourself
a table. Keith (the voice of Slapshot) Hunsinger will
begin the always humorous reading of the rules shortly after
11 pm and then we'll begin play. As always please try and bring
a copy of the game (or one of the knock offs) as we always seem
to be short.
This year we'll have our seventh annual costume contest. It
has been a big hit with lots of people wearing their favorite
teams' jersey, a referee's outfit and even a Red Army Hockey
Jersey. Hopefully you guys will be as creative this year and
more of you will participate. Pretty much any costume goes -
hopefully it'll be hockey related. The judging standard will
again be whatever tickles the fancy of judges Bruce Reiff and
Keith Hunsinger at the time. Prizes will include hockey related
memorabilia and possibly tickets to a NHL game ...
See you all Saturday night! Go Blue Jackets!!!!
Mark Yoshikawa will host a Juniors version for those 12 and under
Saturday at 6 PM in the Heritage room. See http://www.boardgamers.org/yearbkex/jnrpge.htm
