"Cup in Hand" Kickball and BBQ

You remember kickball, right? From back in elementary school when you were super uncoordinated. Well now you have a chance to play it again. The bad news? You’ll still be uncoordinated. The good news? It’s because you’ll be drunk. It’s “cup in hand” kickball! (Is there any other way to play?)

Come have some fun in the park (or “pahk”, in light of Ben Affleck's latest role) on Saturday. Enjoy a BBQ and drinking kickball game!

When and where
I (Jason) will meet people at Kentucky and Franklin in Wash Park and then set up around there (wherever there is room). Parking is available on the streets or a few blocks south at South High School. Look for someone with a kickball, cones, and a red camping grill. :) Or text/call me,[masked]-9494.

What to bring for kickball:
1. Clothes that you don’t mind having beer spilled on. Maybe a towel too.
2. Non-hipster sunglasses, sunscreen
3. Camping chair
4. An extra kickball would be great too, as I only have one kickball.

What to bring for the BBQ:
1. Beer or some sort of drink. Be sure it’s in a can (pretty sure glass bottles are prohibited) and is 3.2% beer (you can get a ticket if it is not 3.2, so buy/drink at your own risk!).
2. A grill. I have one that I’ll bring, but we could use 1 or 2 more.
3. Food, plasticware, napkins, plates, trashbags, etc to share for the BBQ. Please RSVP below with what you are going to bring.

The kickball rules:
1. Don’t be a dbag! This is a socializing event first and a game second. So have fun and meet new people. (Note: I’m stealing this rule from KIFAC.)
2. See Rule #1. (Note: I’m stealing this rule from Fight Club.)
3. 11 players on the field at a time.
4. Each player must be holding a cup of beer that is at least half-full while playing in the field. I'll bring the Solo cups for everyone.
5. Second base is “Social Second.” Any runner who touches second yells “Social” and we all drink.
-Rule 5a: Never drink alone.
6. If there’s a slip-n-slide from 3rd to home, sliding on the slide to score counts as 2 runs.
7. When tagging or hitting someone for an out, aim below the head. If a runner gets hit in the head (even if they lower he or she lowers her head), the runner gets two bases and is not out.
8. An overthrow is one base.
9. On a flyball, the ball can be hit off any body part and then caught for an out, so long as it doesn’t touch the ground. In other words, you can hit into the air as much as you want to get an assist from others before someone finally catches it.

    I can bring another kickball and a set of bases if needed?

    September 6, 2013

    • Jason

      I'd bring them and keep them in the car. We may need them if we end doing two games at once.

    Had to change to "no" this time. Thanks work

      Dislike. :)

    I'll obviously bring some food and beer, but do we need an actual slip and slide? Because I own one. I believe it even has a pool at the end.

    September 5, 2013

    • Jason

      Feel free to bring it and we can set it up somewhere. We do have one already, but maybe people will want both? :) Who knows, maybe we get a second game too.

    How long are people planning on staying? I'd like to attend but wouldn't be able to arrive until later

    September 5, 2013

    • Jason

      I imagine we'll be there for awhile. I was thinking we'd play a bit, fire up the grill around 3:30/4 for a late lunch or early dinner, eat, and keep playing. People will bring frisbees and hang out. Feel free to text me if you want to make sure we're still there or post on here.

    I'll bring some beer and brats. What's the best non-watery 3% beer (if such a thing exists)? Also, I think I might have an extra kickball lying around somewhere.

      We're in the Rockies...Silver Bullet!!

    Slip and slide is set! David is bringing the slide. Just bring water for it and baby shampoo (I'll bring a couple bottles, but I'm sure we could use more).

    Not kickball coordinated, but I can hold a cup pretty well. I'll bring some snacks and water.

    I can bring plasticware, napkins & plates.
    I literally just moved to Denver yesterday. Know no one and have high expectations based on rumors that people from Denver are pretty cool. Just saying. :)

    P.s. I only have hipster sunglasses :(

      its cool i just moved here to from Maui looking to meet people as well!

    Can everyone bring some water for the slip and slide? I figure if each person brings a gallon or a bucket, that should be enough.

    September 2, 2013

  • DannyK

    Is there going to be a slip-n-slide!?!?! Because that would be legit! Planning on coming with at least 1 other person, possibly more. Looking forward to it.

    2 · August 30, 2013

    • DannyK

      Done! I will grab some of that plastic sheeting stuff from Home Depot so we can make the slip-n-slide as long as we want. If anyone has a 5 gallon bucket they can bring, so we can get water from the lake or somewhere nearby, that would be great!

      1 · August 30, 2013

    • Jason

      The bucket is a good idea....water from the lake? Maybe not so much. I think I'll bring some baby shampoo (no sting! no crying!) and that should help keep it slick. We can bring water just for the slide then. Another guy may bring a seven gallon thing of water.

    ohhhhh emmmm geeeeee. We called this sloshball in California. I haven't played since doctor school and thought it was lost forever when I moved out here.

      Google KIFAC. You'll be pleased. :)
