Like to play foosball?

Now here's a chance to really get into foosball.

The Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Harvest Festival will feature a live, human-size foosball competition at Banks Lake Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 19.

It's a case of humans becoming the pins in a real foosball shootout.

"It's the newest, and most hilariously fun, addition to our ever-popular Harvest Festival!" the chamber's website says.

Teams of six can enter the challenge with a registration fee of $30. To register, contact the chamber office, at 633-3074 or register online at the chamber website.

Gameplay rules, sample video and the registration form can be reached here

Games last 15 minutes. The team with the most goals wins and advances in the tournament.

Some of the rules include:

• Players must keep both hands on their assigned section of the foosball pole at all times.

• Players may not move along the length of the foosball pole or switch positions with other players during play.

• Players must move together from side to side; however, no player except the goalie, is permitted to move forward or backward.

• No player except the goalie is permitted to touch the ball with arms or hands.

• The ball must remain below the poles and no physical contact is allowed among players.

Check out the video at the above website to get a feel of the action.

The chamber is encouraging people to contact friends and relatives and organize a team for a lot of fun and action on Sept. 19.
