Ko-Ball Tournament Won by David / Skippy Team!!

Posted by Fleet News Service on May 4, 2008

Two Ko-Ball pods were built into the dome for the tournament Saturday, which was a lot of fun for everyone. Ko-ball is a lot like the football games we played in the colonies, except that there are only 1 to 3 players on a team.

In a dramatic, hard-fought competition lasting 7 rounds, winners David/Skippy were able to out-play second place finishers Dree/Jess.

Due to popular request, one Ko-Ball pod will be left in place int the dome for people to play pick-up games and practice!
