Down East to hold human Foosball event

Down East Saloon and Homer Events sponsor the second-annual Alaska Open Human Foosball Competition on Aug. 29 at Down East. Last year’s champions from the Maverick Bar will defend their title. 

“Homer Events is famous for making weird things happen at their events, so teams are encouraged to make a big showy entrance, dress strange, sing their theme song, wear matching T-shirts, have cheerleaders, bring a poster to trot around the outdoor venue, whatever,” said Homer Events coordinator Dax Radtke.

Radtke said Homer Events also plans some extra activities, including giant bubbles. A portion of profits will be contributed to local charities.

Anyone can sponsor a team for $65. Individuals wanting to play can sign up for $5 and be assigned to teams needing to fill out their rosters. To sign up, email Radtke at daxalaska@yahoo.com or visit Alaska Open Human Foosball Tourney on Facebook.
