"Badminton Played Artfully" Oct 14, 2009

by Jessica

From our friends at Giant Magnet:

More than 25 local arts organizations threw down at On the Boards' Badminton Royale Season Opening Tailgate Party on Sept. 22. Lively costumes, even livelier cheers, hotdogs and cheap beer added to the fierce competition in the gravel lot. Though Giant Magnet was eliminated in the second round, the organization took home a prize ribbon for "Best Smack-Talking", thanks to the imaginative and competitive efforts of Giant Magnet Team Coach, Brian Faker (pictured here as he gives player Bruce Hall a little encouragement).
