24 Hours! Relay For Life 2009 UPDATE!

It is time once again for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life! And, just like last year, I am going to attempt the entire 24 hour walk!

Now I will be the first to tell you, I tried this last year..and sadly, I failed. It was a very hard pill to swallow. I had to bow out for about two hours right in the middle. Now most people tell me that I walked 22 hours and that is enough, but not for me. I insist on conquering the relay!

This is my redemption year. I WILL prepare, I WILL raise the money, and most importantly, I WILL complete the 24 hour walk.

I would love to have you on my team. You do not have to walk 24 hours, (you don't even have to walk 24 minutes if you don't want to). Just join my team, help us get to our goal of $1,013.00, and come out and support all of the wonderful people that make the Relay For Life such a wonderful experience.

I look forward to seeing you all there.

Thank you for all of your support, donations, and all those walked miles. It is all for a great cause.

Wayne County Relay for Life Dodgeball Tournament Rules

Rules Adapted from the N.A.D.A. Rules posted on


Teams will be made up of 6-10 players. Six (6) players will compete on a side; others will be available as substitutes. Substitutes may enter the game only during timeouts or in the case of injury.


The game will be played indoors or outdoors. The playing field shall be a rectangle at least 50 ft long and at least 30 ft wide, divided into two (2) equal sections by a center-line and attack-lines 3m from, and parallel to the centerline.

IDEAL MEASUREMENTS: 60’ x 30’ – Identical to a volleyball court.


The ball used in tournament and league play will be a rubber-coated foam ball provided by Richmond Parks and Recreation. In the event you rip open the ball during play, please provide $10.00 made payable to the City of Richmond at the Park Administration Building located in Glen Miller Park next to the playground.


The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them "OUT". This may be done by:

1. Hitting an opposing player with a LIVE thrown ball below the shoulders.

2. Catching a LIVE ball thrown by your opponent before it touches the ground.

Definition: LIVE: A ball that has been thrown and has not touched anything, including the floor/ground, another ball, another player, official or other item outside of the playing field (wall, ceiling, etc)


During play, all players must remain within the boundary lines. Players may leave the boundaries through their end-line only to retrieve stray balls. They must also return through their end-line.


Game begins by placing the dodgeballs along the center line – three (3) on one side of the center hash and three (3) on the other. Players then take a position behind their end line. Following a signal by the official, teams may approach the centerline to retrieve the balls. This signal officially starts the contest. Teams may only retrieve the three (3) balls to their right of the center hash. Once a ball is retrieved it must be taken behind the attack-line before it can be legally thrown.


The first team to legally eliminate all opposing players will be declared the winner. A 3-minute time limit has been established for each contest. If neither team has been eliminated at the end of the 3 minutes, the team with the greater number of players remaining will be declared the winner. In the event there is overtime, the team will play another 3-minute round.


Each team will be allowed one (1) 30 second timeout per game. At this time a team may substitute players into the game.


In order to reduce stalling, a violation will be called if a team in the lead controls all six (6) balls on their side of the court for more than 5 seconds. This also applies to tied teams.


During play, rules will be enforced primarily by the "honor system.” Players will be expected to rule whether or not a hit was legal or whether they were legally eliminated. All contests will be supervised by a court monitor. The court monitor’s responsibility will be to rule on any situation in which teams cannot agree. The court monitor’s decision will be final-no exception
