F719: Ladderball. An ALL-NEW addition to the DEXCON 11 Outdoor Sports track. OK, let's be honest - nobody is actually PLAYING in the DEXCON 11 Outdoor Sports track. Except for the Billiards Championship. We don't have enough slots for all of the people who want to play in THAT. But we have all of these cool fun-in-the-sun games that families are supposed to enjoy, and nobody's actually playing them. but we keep them in the schedule because we like to be able to TELL people that we're offering them. Ok, ok...but we were out shopping about three weeks before the convention and we saw this really cool game called Ladderball and we thought "WOW! Another bright, shiny game that nobody will play!" So we just HAD to add it to the schedule, even though Robert Cornelius is going to flip his lid before realizing that nobody is going to want to play in THIS game either! Saturday, 2:00PM - 4:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.
F745: Ring Toss. Played in the bright afternoon sun in the summer grass, participants try to score the most points by throwing rings at a poor, innocent stake. You uncaring fools. What did that stake ever do to you? Is anyone actually reading this? Saturday, 4:00PM - 6:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Fun, All Ages.
F849: Lawn Bowling. Using light plastic pins and a plastic ball, see how you do in this otherwise officially scored bowling game. Played in single elimination format. Sunday, 10:00AM - 1:00PM; One Session; All Materials Provided. Beginners Welcome; Serious, All Ages.
