DodgeCon 2016, Dallas Dodgeball’s first-ever dodgeball convention and open house, treated players to an afternoon of fun and competition on August 20th, 2016 at the Walnut Hill Rec Center in Dallas.
First up was the 1 vs 1 “Dodgeball Duel” tournament. Names were picked from a cowboy hat for matchups. After the smoke had cleared, Jorge Portales was the last man standing. Bianca Wolff claimed the women’s division title. Both champions received prizes from Nestle Nesquik.
After the Dodgeball Duel, it was on to the team tournament. A random draw was held to determine teams. The draw resulted in many former competitors competing side-by-side. The Avengers bested the Big Veins to claim the title.
Special thanks to the players who showed flexibility on this “exhibition day,” to Lupe “Spike” Hernandez for providing the custom DodgeCon 2016 badges, to Brad Mitchell for providing an audio-visual presentation of Dallas Dodgeball, and to Nestle Nesquik for providing refreshments and prizes.
