DFS Father's Club Build a Ga-ga Pit!  - April 28th

It's official!  The DFS Ga-ga Pit is open!!!!!!  What is Ga-ga?  Ga-ga is like dodgeball but played with only one ball. The game combines dodging, striking, running, and jumping, with the objective of being the last person standing. Players hit the ball at each other with their hands and are eliminated if the ball strikes them on or below the knee.

Thanks to the DFS Father's Club for donating not only their fundraising monies for the lumber needed to craft this, but also their physical labor and time to put it together.  Special thanks to Alex Maffini (DFS dad) of Maffini Home Improvement for leading this team of Dads.
