Posts Tagged ‘Charades’

Last night the Intramural Recreational Sports Department had its training of officials for the upcoming volleyball mini-league. During this training officials, of new and veteran status, sat down and went through the rules. They discussed situations, terms, and signals. One topic that became humorous was the fact that there is no “legal” or “official” signal for when the ball hits the rafters during play. Some believe the best signal is to verbalize that the ball hit the rafters or ceiling, while some other officials, with much more experience, have a much brighter idea. The other idea is to do a hand gesture pointing to the ear (representing sounds like from the game charades) then after pointing to the ear you put your arms out and act like a “raptor”. So the charade signal would mean = sounds like raptor, which in turn means rafters, and then you would signal a point for whichever team has earned that point. With these two possible rulings, we realize that the second one makes much more sense but some people within the program feel the first option is better. So, a heated debate has been developed and an official report has been sent to N.I.R.S.A. “National Intramural Recreational Sports Association” and an answer on the ruling should be determined in 7 – 8 months.

On a much more SERIOUS note, the All University Cup is still a close race. With only 3 intramural events left to be finished, volleyball could be a big determining factor for the winner of the cup. In the past Kappa Alpha has been pretty good at volleyball and taken home championship shirts. However, Sigma Chi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon both have very athletic competitors and with enough determination could steal away a men’s volleyball mini-league championship. The intramural volleyball season starts on Wednesday so come out to the Preston Center and watch!!!
