Co-ed Evening CAPTURE THE FLAG at Cedar Hills Park

Update 7/31: Aric and Troy will be at the park at 830pm, in case anyone would like to show up a little early to get familiar with the park before dark and have a refresher on the rules of the game.  And, since there will not be much, if any, daylight after 9pm, you'll probably have a more fun experience if you arrive no later than 9pm.

 

Do you like games of stealth and mock espionage?  We are getting together to play Capture the Flag at dusk.  The idea is we meet at 9pm, which should be dusk, so everyone can get a feel for the lay of the land.  Then, when it is dark out, we can have some really fun games of Capture the Flag that involve sneaking and strategy as much as running.

I'm sure there will be a wide range of fitness levels coming out to play, so please don't be shy about signing up for this event if you are not a stellar athlete. The purpose of this event isn't to win or lose; rather, it is all about having fun! We have done similar events a few times now, and it has been GREAT FUN every time.

And, since this will be a co-ed event, everyone is encouraged to come out and participate.

It might be a good idea to bring some water or Gatorade to drink during/after the games.

Hope to see you there!

      Haha. I like your spirit! Somehow I don't quite see bringing your paintball gun working out for everyone, though :P

    Will everyone be playing the whole time? Thinking about bringing my dog and watching. I hurt my foot so I can't play but sounds like the type of people I'd love to meet.

    August 3, 2013

    • Troy

      Hi Kellie. I imagine most people will be there most of the time. Come on out and say hi!

      August 3, 2013

    • Aric

      Hi Kellie. You're welcome to come out and watch. From 8:30 to 9pm will be people showing up, checking out the park, asking questions, and getting to know each other. Once we start playing we'll take breaks every few rounds for water and generally chat a bit. After the games there's usually some socializing as people start to leave as well.

  • Jeff M.

    Should we bring anything?

    August 3, 2013

    • Aric

      Just your sense of adventure and play should be good. There's a water fountain at the park. Wear whatever you want to blend in better. As of now, I intend to designate teams by having just one side wear headbands.

    Looks like fun! Brand new to PDX. Do you know if parking is available?

    August 3, 2013

    • Fritz

      Thanks, Troy!

    • Aric

      Also, if all of you awesome people show up some may have to park at Petsmart (tucked up against the park off the corner of Walker and Cedar Hills) or across the street from the park parking lot on Huntington Ave. Did I say park enough? ~Parking at the park is plenty but not parallel nor preposterously so , so please, park perfectly and let's play and prey in positive spirits! Peace.~
