As yet another SKEEAPALOOZA rolls around (get it?) I thought it would be important to shed a light on what Trophskees will be distributed at the awards ceremony, and why they are significant. Should you be so lucky to hear your name called on Saturday, you can hold your head high and accept your reward, knowing you have rightfully earned your position in the highest echelon of societskee.
40 Band Leader
50 Band Leader
Combo Band Leader
Each night’s leaders in specialty scores will be receiving special “Baller Buttons” this year, courteskee of alumnus roller, Brittany Mitchell and her company Midwest Makes. There were a lot of ties this skeeson so we opted for buttons so all of you could be recognized for your superior rolling skills.
A Gold, Silver and Bronze medal will be awarded to each night’s top 3 (mystery round/skeelypic champions.) Spoiler alert: There was a tie for the bronze medal on Wednesdays. It could get tricky having to 3 people share the podium with our only 7′ft tall roller. Hint hint.
PS. I better not see any of these getting pawned on Hardcore Pawn: Chicago.

And finally, new this skeeson…we are giving out the “BEST OF SKEEAPALOOZA BALL.” That’s right. I’m giving away a “GAME BALL” to the best overall showing by a roller on Saturday. And it’s not just about winning. I will consider EVERYTHING from SKEE spirit to time of arrival, friendliness, helpfulness… etc. You name it, I’ll be watching.
Unfortunately, not everyone can walk away with an award or trophskee. This is not communist China. However, you ALL will be receiving your KICK ASS league SKEE Shirt on Saturday, so come sporting an undershirt so you can make a quick change and look pretty for the league picture.
It’s going to be amazeballs. SKEE YA THERE!
