Flashpoint Twister Tournament

Editorial Review

Best idea of the whole darn week: the Flashpoint Twister Tournament. Just reading the name should make you smile. Two-person teams go head-to-head -- make that right-foot-red to left-hand-green -- for bragging rights and a PBR bocce set, which sounds perfect for your upcoming Labor Day trip to the beach. Connect Four will be provided for non-Twisterers. Everyone can partake of cold cans of Pabst and hot pigs in a blanket. Tickets are $15, or $10 for Flashpoint members and volunteers. It's fine to show up solo -- the organizers will pair you with someone to form a team. (Hopefully a yoga instructor.) Need a refresher on the rules? Flashpoint posted a link to them on its Web site -- along with a link for purchasing advance tickets.
