Assalamu-alaikum (peace be upon you) IYGers and readers,

Grab a hat and coat and bundle up! It is getting cold around West Lafayette as winter slowly creeps in and Fall departs. Ahhh how we miss those wonderful days of sunshine and warm weather to go run around outside and enjoy the gentle breeze of a warm June day…but we digress. Tonight’s chilly weather provided the perfect excuse to move indoors and warm-up our chilled fingers and toes with a hearty game of DODGEBALL! We’ve played this sport on quite a few occasions but it never seems to lose its charm or appeal (no matter how old our youth get) alhamdulillah. Somehow the joy of tossing a 6-inch soft ball delicately through the air into the waiting arms of an opposing team member is the epitome of fun on a Friday night. Don’t believe us…we offer the pictures below as proof. Enjoy!

Mohamed and Ahmed take a moment to explain the game of Ultimate Dodgeball. Gentlemen, Mujtaba has an ultimate question for you!

The look of intensity (or fear, we're not quite sure) on the faces of your young men as they prepare for 73 minutes of intense game action. Someone has decided to throw down their sweatshirt as a challenge to whomever is willing to accept it.
