Singles Night Returns! (couples OR singles welcome)

  • Apr 7, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

- PARKING: Any non-numbered space within Gretna Green is free for the taking.  There is also parking on Valley Forge (the road going up the hill).  Or, you can park in the east end of the Pickett St. Home Depot.  The townhomes are directly across from the Goodyear tire center and Mercedes dealership.  You can then walk between the fence line and the townhomes to get to my place.

- Guys, note your interest in attending comments.  I will only add guys to the attending list as spots open up = to the number of women attending.  Numbers must work out evenly for this event.

- Couples can participate, they will be paired up in all activities together.

Okay folks!  After much consideration, I have decided to bring back our Singles Night, with some much needed changes.  This edition is designed to keep the numbers even, and get everyone socializing with each member of the opposite sex so that you will get to know each and every guy/gal!

**Couples are also welcome to participate, just please let me know beforehand that you're together!  The activities/Newlywed-style game will be fun for couples to test their knowledge of one another too! Couples will be paired together on all activities for this event.**

Guys can RSVP for the event directly, but 1 week before, I will randomly select participants = to the number of women that have signed up.  I will edit the RSVP list directly at that time.

Throughout the afternoon, we will take part in various activities (social games & icebreakers).  You will be paired up with a different member of the opposite sex during these activities, and how you fare together will give you (unannounced) points.  We will also be asking questions that have multiple choice answers, examples being:

 

Pick one:

Hiking, Tour Bus, or Beach

Beer, Wine, or Hard Liquor

Boxers, Commandos, Briefs

Friends, Seinfeld, Simpsons

...where your answers will also be recorded.  Before the final activity, all points & answers will be tallied and we will each be paired up with our "most compatible" opposite.  This will lead us to the last activity of the night, which is:

The "Newlywed" Game - Not Actually Wed Version!

For this last game, find out how well you've gotten to know that individual.  For things you don't actually know, see how accurate you are about figuring their responses.

Followed by:

Romantic Comedy (TBD)

This is the plan so far, but I'm open to suggestions and requests!

**Again everyone may RSVP directly, guys will be selected randomly from the interested participants, and the RSVP list updated accordingly 1 week before the event**

    Very fun! Thanks, Andrew for planning and running the event, Michael for co-hosting, Rob for providing the venue (I owe you a few bucks for pizza, sorry I forgot) and gals for ordering the great Thai food. Enjoyed the movie too.

    This was by far.one of.the most fun and.creative ways for singles to.come.together. Would not mind pitching in few.bucks to have a food break like we did,.only more structured. Liked the group's idea of a.date night potluck.

  • Laureen C.

    Hey, I'm new to the group and this may be a stupid question, but what's the parking situation like at your place?

    March 31, 2013

    • Marc

      Laureen, awesome to see another Floridian attending!!! Tampa is a great city and often wished I ended up there instead of being stuck in South Florida for years on end. Have some great friends there. Looking forward to meeting you.

      April 3, 2013

    • Marc

      stupid typos...

      April 3, 2013

  • Andrew

    Sorry, Frank & Sheldon, our womens' RSVPs dropped by two so I have to scale back the guys' RSVPs as well. You're next in line more spots open up.

    April 3, 2013

    Any sense of how long this event will last? I can probably come for part/most of it!

    March 25, 2013

    • Andrew

      I expect it will last until 6-7. If you're not going to be able to stay throughout, please do let me know ahead of time so I can figure that into the activities.

      March 27, 2013

    If.there turns out to be twice as many guys than girls, perhaps a first set of guyscould rotate through half the ice.breakers, and then the second set of guys could rotate in with the girls to play the second half of ice breakers, and then scores from all sets would be used to determine most compatible with oppositefor The Newlywed Game. Just a thought, in an attempt to prevent turning away fun and willing hopefuls. This may not be the most feasible suggestion.to accomplish that goal, but wanted to throw in that sugg. Thoughts?

  • Andrew

    Due to popular request, I have moved the location back to Springfield, which seems to be far more accessible to most of our group.

    As such, the date will be changed to April 7th.

    March 15, 2013

  • Jax

    This new location is going to be a super long drive for me. I volunteer to drop out if the numbers don't equalize

    March 9, 2013

  • Marc

    Sounds interesting. Wish I had thought of it. What happens if no women RSVP? Did you consider doing this some place more public? Perhaps some women that do not know you might be hesitant to come out?

    March 9, 2013

    • Andrew

      The number of guys attending will be = to the number of women who RSVP. As detailed, guys will be selected at random the list of those wishing to attend.
