UKRAINIAN VILLAGE — A dodgeball tournament this weekend allows you to fire rubber balls at costumed opponents for a good cause.
The tournament, which is open to adults only, is set for 6-8 p.m. Friday at Columbus Elementary School in Ukrainian Village, 1003 N. Leavitt St.
Halloween costumes are encouraged — there will be prizes awarded to the best team costume as well as the first place team.
A fundraiser for Friends of Columbus, the school's nonprofit parent group, the event is open to the public and aims to get at least 80 players registered on 10 teams, though a few more players are needed to round out a couple of teams, according to Sarah Boone, one of the organizers.
Boone said some of the team names so far are "The Book Club", "The Black Cats" (made up of Ukrainian moms), "If You Can Dodge A Wrench," "The Mamas and the Poppas," and "The Therarollers," a team of physical therapists.
The cost to participate is $15 per person or $120 for a team of eight.
Hot dogs will be available for $2 each.
To sign up a team of eight, or to register solo and be placed on a team, email FriendsofColumbus here.
