Capture the Flag! Enough said. Who's in?

never played? can you run? Then you're good!! 
show up ready to laugh and run and steal the flag! Capture the flag and return it to your own team's territory without getting tagged into temporary jail.  



Attendees will be broken down into two teams by the host group: IAV  (Improv Anywhere Vancouver) 

Each team will have it's own flag. May the best team win!

--------------------
I have been participating in events with Improv Anywhere Vancouver for some time now. I usually want to go off and be silly and do my own thing, push my own boundaries, break down my own walls and remember how to play.  I'm now sharing it with you. --------

Capture the flag is simply a 'more the merrier' game. With enough people you have jailbreaks , guard strategies, and team work of the sneakiest fashion :)
Come and join us for some real 3d interactive fun!! put the board games away for a few hours and come out and play a moving piece :)
Get in the game
Come out and play!!

This game is hosted by VIA, not meetup. I am sharing my invitation with members of ESV to join me and them, with respect. :) Good sportsmanship is important to our reputation. I am hopeful that I won't regret extending this invite to all of you. 

 From Host: "Missed the last game? Join us for round 3! The object of the game is for players to make their way into the opposing team's territory without being tagged. The flag is defended mainly by tagging opposing players who attempt to take it. Within their own territory, players are "safe", meaning that they cannot be tagged by opposing players. Once they cross in to the opposing team's territory, they are vulnerable..."

RSVP'S
please keep your rsvp current. a bunch of 'no shows' or last minute cancellations would ruin the game. It can also count against you for future attendance rights if you are a no show.  Thanks for your help with this.

    As I update my attendance list (and shake my head for the no shows who left people waiting), please let me know what your reason is for bailing before I adjust attendance and no shows. Thanks for your help with this. If you didn't get a 'good to see you' then you did not get checked off for attendance. If this is incorrect please shoot me a message so that it is not counted against future attendance opportunities for you.
    Thanks to all who showed and had fun!!!. ..even injured hungover or unwell in the sidelined/cheering section ;)

    • Tammy S

      yah. i'll be at slocan, driving my car and chewing my gum... lol

      August 23

  • Tammy S

    i was trying to edit on my phone and it went epically wonky. I accidentally punted someone instead of adding them off the waiting list. I hope I contacted and fixed the right one. If not, let me know. Thanks. (The only reason anyone would be punted is for previous no shows where we were counting on you and I would let you know)

    Dont forget your water and your toonie donation! There is a lot going on tomorrow. Please plan your transit time accordingly. Do not think that the last train or bus might get you there on time. :) See you all tomorrow! I will be leaving slocan park at about 5pm and heading over to artigianno's and then to the train station to use my handy dandy attendance sheet :) before we go off to play

    August 23

    • Tammy S

      remember there are NO bathroom facilities at the park. Go before we leave for the walk to the park. There is lots by the train station. :) I will be grabbing a quick tea at artigianno's for this very purpose :)

      August 23

    • Tammy S

      Keep in mind... two no shows without a good reason means no no third shot. You will be removed without additional explanation :) it is important for the people who wait for a spot. Thanks for your help and understanding in keeping this as fair to all as possible

      August 23

  • Tammy S

    As we get closer, please confirm or update ypur rsvp. Please help keep the number of people expected Accurate. Thanks for your help with this. // TooniE donations are also welcome. There will be a bucket.They did flag us, tag us and bring a spare water bottle last time. It seems more than fair. It is not a requirement. It is a donation. Don't forget your own water supply. Don't count on anything being provided for you. One person bringing one person's water supply is not so bad. Carrying water for multiple people can place too much burden and responsibility on one person. Do your share, bring a toonie if you can to throw in the jar and be prepared to laugh and play!!!
