    Double Ds NoteDear Lister,

    Ladies and gentlemen, can we please have your attention. Weve just been handed an urgent notice from the LDL. We need all of you to stop what youre doing and listen.


    Prepare yourselves for the adventure of a lifetime. Fantastic dodge-ball, wild fans showing their tower pride. Last year, the Lighthouse be-gan this tradition of a small booklet of player biographies, and Double D Dodgeball is keeping it going.

    Just like the rest of you, we fell in love with dodgeball the very first time we stepped into the Tuckey. Just two goons on 5K yossin bombs and wheelin moms. All Star week is an experience that is just as fun on and off the court, for players and fans alike. We got to know the All Star teams, especially our own tower. (RIP Champs) It was exciting that we could finally put a name to a face of some of the great dodge-ball players out there and have better dodgeball discussions.

    Our hope is that this pamphlet allows you guys to get a head start on the All Star experience. So you will be able to get to know the team a little better than you did and get more out of the experience and get invested in your team and your players. The more you put into All Star week, the more you get out of it. We encourage you to participate in as much of it as you can, as it is one of the greatest weeks in your Lister experience. Take advantage of all that All Stars has to offer.

    From the folks at Double D Dodgeball, you stay All Starry Lister.

    A Message from the LDLHey Team,

    First of all, thank you all for being a part of the Annual All-Star Tour-nament! The All Star Tournament is undeniably the most anticipated and celebrated week in the Lister Dodgeball League Calendar and rightly so. This week exists as a celebration of everything the LDL was, is, and will be in Lister. As a league that champions Sportsman-ship and Teamwork above all else, it is always an inspiration to see league members gather to celebrate the league and its pillars together. Whether you are participating as a player or a spectator, we all partake due to a love and passion for dodgeball. The LDL is unique amongst sports leagues, campus organizations, and residence culture. Imita-tions have been attempted, however the reality is that what we have in Lister in very special and incredibly unique. The LDL is the reason Lister alumni still proudly call themselves Listerites, show up to events like Campus Cup and the Alumni Tournament, and keep their old LDL jerseys tucked away as mementos of their time in Lister.

    I encourage each and every one of you to participate in as much of All-Star Week as you can. Our league is the envy of every organization on campus and every sports league because of our passionate, dedicat-ed, proud members. Whether you are competing, spectating, or simply reading this package, be proud!
