In a game meant to celebrate a bygone
era, Sloshball XIV proved to be the end
of an era itself. It started out with a
kids derby and by the end of the day,
the little guys had taken over the place.
As we officially transition to a new,
much more casual era of "Bigsball"
coming in 2009, we bid farewell to
Sloshball OC and thank all those who
attended over these many years. God
