Nathan Thoen and David "DT" Thomson are two Saskatchewan Canadudes who hate shirts and love to throw snowballs. They're co-captains of Team Canada for the upcoming Yukigassen World Championships. Wait, the WHAT?
Yukigassen ("snow battle" in Japanese) is an annual tournament held in Japan. Teams from different countries put on snowsuits, goggles, and helmets and whip snowballs at each other for two days. Canadian teams have competed before, but never won.
Yukigassen is a mix of capture the flag and dodgeball. You can win the match in three ways:
# Hit all of the opposing team's players with snowballs, thereby eliminating them.
# Capture their team flag.
# Have more players remaining on your side when the time runs out.
