Pillow Fighting

Biff! Want to take charge of your team? Try TeamSnap and see how easy it can be!

Every year at the 40th Annual World Pillow Fighting Championships grown men and women straddle the 'Slippery When Wet' pole and try to hang on for a title (mostly just hang on to the pole).

The audience always has a great time watching contestants slowly slither their way along the pole to the starting position while trying to keep their balance and holding onto a wet feather pillow in one hand and nothing but air in the other. If you have never tried it, it is harder than it looks. The Champions manage to make it look so easy that everyone wants to have a swing at it.

History

A well known Kenwoodian named Tom Rooney suggested that the World Pillow Fighting Championships be held in Kenwood at the 4th of July Celebration. A pole was made to span the Los Guillicos Spring Creek, the creek was then filled with mud and the Pillow Fights were ready to make history. The World Pillow Fighting Championships, now a Kenwood tradition, is now one of the most highly anticipated events of the summer. Since then the Pillow Fights have receive National and International recognition via television, radio and print publications. Folks travel from all over the world to take part in the pillow fight competition, either as a contestant or as sideline observers. Whatever their involvement, people young and old alike enjoy this now famous and unusual competition.

The most intuitive and easy-to-use web application since Gmail

TeamSnap is my new favorite website. Beyond its sheer handiness, TeamSnap is the most intuitive and easy-to-use Web application since Gmail. A half-drunk lobotomized chimp could register a team. And probably play shortstop." —Margaret Lyons, TimeOut Chicago

It works on any budget

"Managing a team for co-ed, intramural or beer league sports can be a tricky thing. Tracking down team members, arranging and sharing game time and location information, and keeping track of who's paid what and who's in need of equipment or uniforms or things like that can all present quite a challenge. TeamSnap takes a lot of that trickiness out of the process, and there's a free plan, so it works on any budget."—Darrell Etherington, Web Worker Daily

You can even customize it

"Online team management software, such as TeamSnap, let you know who will and won't be at a specific game, who's bringing snack, and who's paid their registration fees. You can even customize it to keep track of uniform sizes and more!"—Emily Cohen, Youth Soccer Insider
