v0dgeball has become a VMworld tradition – where vendors, vExperts, partners, online community personalities and more come together, leave the baggage of our day-to-day competition… and instead compete in the viceral experience that is competitive dodgeball ;-)
This year was the 3rd year, and I think the best one yet… We raised more than $13,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project – a great charity. A big shout out to Erica MacDonald who was central in pulling it all together

It was also where the first (of many as it would turn out) signs “Reserved for Chad Sakac” would turn up that week. I still don’t know who did this (though I have my suspects) – it was pretty darn funny if you ask me…
At VMworld 2013 in San Francisco, we’ll do it again – keep your eyes peeled (it’s always the day before the show really gets rolling) – and starting building your team now! Follow @frednix and #v0dgeball!
