Get ready for some fun next weekend in Cedar Rapids! Checker's Tavern is proud to announce the 2nd annual Human Foosball Tournament, on Saturday, June 2, starting at 1 p.m.

Last year, we had an absolute blast! The game is played just like regular foosball, but life-sized! Teams of six will play on a field about 32 feet long and 16 feet wide, with rods stretching across the field. The players (we humans) hold on to the rod in set positions.

We are still looking for teams to participate in the event. If you're interested in playing, call Pam at (319) 364-9927. Your team donation is 100% tax deductible.

This year's event will again benefit the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital and the St. Florian Fire & Burn Foundation Miracle Burn Camp. I couldn't think of two better charities to be helping out here in Eastern Iowa.

Again, I sure hope you can join us on Saturday, June 2, at Checker's Tavern in Cedar Rapids. There will be live music, games for the kids, and plenty of fun for the entire family!

We'll see you on Saturday, June 2nd!
