Gaga Pit

Dear members of the Madeira Swim and Tennis Club,

My name is Kyle Kimbrough I am a Boy Scout In Troop 209 and a Sophomore at Madeira High School.  I am working on my Eagle project for Boy Scouts.  My project is building a Gaga pit at the Madeira Swim and Tennis Club. Gaga is a game that originated in Israel and is spreading across the U.S.  It is a variation of dodge ball that is played with one ball. The game combines dodging, striking, running and jumping with the object of hitting opponents with a ball below the knee while avoiding being hit. Gaga is played in a multi-wall enclosure, its a fun game for kids of all ages and another excellent active alternative or break to swimming. I am going to be constructing the pit this spring and I am seeking funds to help complete this project.

I’m hoping to raise about $1000 dollars to cover the cost of materials.  It sounds like an ambitious goal, but if only half the families at the swim-club donate $10 dollars we will reach this amount. If you wish to contribute to the success of this project you can click here to donate. I am hoping to get donations in by Monday May 18th so I can finish the project by June 7th so your kids can enjoy playing Gaga as soon as possible.
If you have any questions you can contact me at kyle209eagleproject@gmail.com. 

Thank you for supporting this project.  I know the kids will really have fun playing Gaga!




Sincerely,
Kyle Kimbrough
