1984 Skeebeer League

Try your hand at skeeball this winter at 1984 for the Wilmington barcade’s third annual Skeebeer League.

It’s free, and it starts Sunday, Feb. 14, at 4 p.m., and runs one round each succeeding Sunday at the same time (and occasionally Mondays at 7 p.m.) for the following 10 weeks.

Teams should have between three and five participants, who are responsible for forming their own groups. The events are sponsored by PBR, which will provide weekly prizes and discounts, along with trophies and a “big prize” at the end, says 1984 owner Matt Morrissette.

The skeeball leagues are inspired by some bigger cities, like Austin, Texas, where the game is popular, Morrissette says.

He offers some words of wisdom to the timid beginner: “No one is any good. It’s more for kicks than the glory of victory.”

If interested, sign up at 1984wilmington@gmail.com or through a 1984 bartender any time before the deadline on Sunday, Feb. 7.
