VMworld – v0dgeball Deathmatch Details: vSquirrels vs. Sakacc’s Army…

UPDATE: Thanks to Chad’s hard work, transportation to/from the venue is provided:
v0dgeball bus (players and groupies) Marriott on Mission ~5:30PM Thurs, departs at 6:00 PM sharp & return ~10:00 PM.

[Reposted and edited for snark from Sakacc’s blog.]
To celebrate the close of VMworld 2010, there will be a best 5 of 9 match to the death between [me] @Beaker – Chris Hoff, aka hohoff from Cisco and his army of vSquirrels vs @sakacc – Chad Sakac, aka “Mr VMware at EMC” and his squad of vSpecialists.

So – a little more detail?

  • The game = dodgeball, 10-person teams, following official NADA dodgeball rules here.
  • The location = VMware vGym has been graciously offered (here)
  • The date/time = Thursday, Sept 2nd, 8pm PT

Here’s all the FAQ you could possibly need:

Q: Will it be broadcast?

A: DAMN STRAIGHT – I want to televise destroying Chad 🙂

Q: What do I need to bring refreshment wise?

A: Nada, I’m bringing the beer kegs (still working out details on this one)

Q: What do I need to know about dodgeball to follow the exciting matches?

A1: That people wearing gold shorts and knee high socks are acutely aware of just how cool that makes them.

A2: In the immortal words of Patches O’Houlihan“If you’re going to become true dodgeballers, then you’ve got to learn the five d’s of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!”

…Oh and Chad – BRING IT.

NOTE: If you want to sign up for the vSquirrels team, add your name in the comments below.  The team size is 10, but if more people sign up, we’ll feign injury and do substitutions.

Remember, you get to bounce balls off Sakacc and his army of EMC Cloud’sperts. For free. With beer. [some of that sounds appealing, other bits quite wrong.]

    I want to be in your team (it makes it a lot easier to hit you).

    My plane leaves Thursday afternoon, so I'll have to miss the tourney. Bounce some extra balls off of @sakacc and @lynxbat for me, ok?

    I'm on board. I want to play. 🙂

    So, the tournament is EMC vs. Cisco? No pickup options for those of us staying an extra day after vmworld?

    Ill be there and will be willing to play on the side of the honorable squirrel. I will score extra points with my super style.

    I'm bringing a pro photographer with me

    Add me to the list. I'm definitely game. After 5 days in San Francisco and trying to make all the events throughout the city, I'll be well versed according to Patches O'Houlihan: "If you can dodge traffic, you can dodge a ball."

    Count me in, at the very least I'll make a good wall for someone to hide behind for a round or two.
