    • Harry K.

      Hey Michael and Arun - very cool. Sadly, work has just encroached on my evening so I'm going to miss it. Bummer. Next time.

    The 18year old is my son so I guess I'm covered?

  • Emma P.

    I'm also wondering about the age requirement for this event. Can a 20-year-old attend if accompanied by someone over 21?

      I called the bar and they said it was fine to bring my 16 year old brother. YMMV.

      August 28, 2014

    • Courtney G.

      Unfortunately, the age requirement for Blazing Paddles is 21 unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

      August 28, 2014

  • Ken S.

    Is there an age requirement for this event? I have someone who's 18 interested in attending. But it is in a bar.

    August 27, 2014

    • Courtney G.

      The age requirement for Blazing Paddles is 21 years old unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
