When we were in college and completely broke, a few friends in our dorm came up with the concept of hunting for FreeFun. One of our best discoveries was TrayBall -- best played on the lawn behind the UCSB UCen, in front of the lagoon. Basically TrayBall is a cross between baseball, a food fight, and skim boarding.

Step 1: Borrowing

Discreetly (ahem) "borrow" a few of the plastic trays from the dining commons -- you need about 8.
Dr Kelso would go apesh*t if he saw this :o<br /> <br /> <br />
uahahahahahahhah funny sport! I want it in the olympic game
Stealing trays and muffins? Fun stuff...
<em>How could you?! I am appalled by this heinous act against muffins! I should have you banned from the world!</em><br/><br/>Sounds awesome! How'd you come upon this crazy-involved sport? Were there ever any muffin-related injuries? Most importantly, could you use something less valuable than almighty muffins? (ie. donuts or cake)<br/>
Sigh. It's true, there are many muffin casualties in the name of TrayBall. Donuts and cake aren't bad ideas, but the beauty of a muffin is its ability to withstand a good tray whack and remain relatively intact. Especially a stale muffin. And to answer your questions, this game was born entirely out of that magical time at the end of the quarter when your student loan money had run out, finals were around the corner, and some serious stress-relief/procrastination was necessary. A few minor injuries occurred when the grass was not dewy enough to slide and the tray stopped short, thus launching the batter into the air. The most severe injuries were suffered by the muffins.
