Please note: if it rains, we can still go to a cafe and network and socialize.
Football season is in full swing.....
Let's get together for a fun session of touch football, followed by light refreshments or lunch afterwards -- and networking.
You don't need to be a former varsity player or Heisman Trophy candidate (or powder puff football stand out) to come out and have a good time.
This is strictly for fun, and no previous experience is necessary.
This is touch football, not tackle, so no one should get hurt from participating.
We will also have a session of soccer (the other kind of football) to mix it up a bit.

After some time playing time, we'll head over to a nearby cafe or eatery for refreshments and/or food -- and socializing, networking and fellowship.
We might consider going to the Stanford football game at 3 pm or watching it on TV at the Graduate Community Center (750 Escondido Road, Stanford, CA).
