GLOW IN THE DARK KICKBALL!! GLOW STICKS BALL AND BASES! FOOD CHARITY EVENT!!

This is a first for our group and im excited to be able to add this to the calendar!!! On Friday, October 26, join us for our first ever GLOW IN THE DARK KICKBALL EVENT!!! I recently purchased a ball that actually glows in the dark!!! Im not talking one of those barely glowing, hard to see neon ones....Im talking one that actually has slots to put GLOW STICKS in it and the ball itself is clear!!! I am also going to purchase different color glow sticks for the different teams for players to wear on their wrists and shoe laces. The bases will also be laced in glow sticks.

This event will be for a good cause as well! I am asking that each participant bring at least 2 cans of food so that we can donate it to a local food bank. (Obviously feel free to bring more)

The cost will be $2.00 cash for this meetup to help cover the glow sticks and GLOW BALL!! Just bring the cash at the time of the event.

THIS MAY TURN OUT TOO BE A REALLY BIG EVENT!! AWESOME!!! KNIGHT'S OF COLUMBUS HAVE AGREED TO ALLOW US TO USE THEIR FACILITY AND PARTICIPATE IN THIS!! They will have their bar open for us and the beer is very reasonably priced at $2 a bottle and $2.50 for some....they also do an even cheaper bucket special for those of you that really want to get your drink on!! They will also be cooking burgers and dogs for us, so please plan to eat there that evening. Hence why I am currently setting the start time at 6:30. Actual kickball play will not be until at least 8 pm for when its good and dark.

If we get enough people signed up, we can do at least a 4 team tournament at this particular location....if not more. MORE DETAILS TO COME BUT PLEASE GO AHEAD AND RSVP IF YOU ARE GAME TO PLAY SOME NIGHT TIME KICKBALL!!!

    Hey Clifton will my nieces be able to play tonight?

    Hi Clifton,

    I RSVP'd Yes and it looks like I am not wait listed. Can you confirm and also advise how I can add one guest to the wait list. Thanks in advance!

    October 24, 2012

    • Clifton

      I am sure room will open up for you to change your RSVP to +1 today. Trust me, a few people more people will change their rsvp to not going due to it not being sunny.

      October 26, 2012

    • Clifton

      I just added your guest to your rsvp now that a slot opened up for ya!

    Based on the talk about rain this event is outside. But they are selling liquor and food. Is this place a stadium or what?

    October 26, 2012

    • Clifton

      The bar and food are inside there building. Its a large field as far as where we are playing which is right outside the building....no stadium

      October 26, 2012

  • Clifton

    I just checked both WRAL and weather.com.....surprisingly, even though they both show this cloud cover to stay, they are only showing a 10-20% chance of rain still. Even for the hourly up thru midnight, the highest either shows is a 20% chance of rain. IF IT DOES NOT RAIN SIGNIFICANTLY BEFORE THE EVENT, WE ARE DEFINITELY STILL A GO FOR THIS EVENING!! If the thought of a few sprinkles is going to keep you or a guest from coming, please try to update your RSVPs as soon as possible. In the case where I have to cancel and reschedule, I will do so by 5 p.m.

    October 26, 2012

  • Clifton

    NOTE: I checked weather.com as they are usually pretty accurate compared to WRAL. They are showing it to be warm and cloudy tomorrow with only a 10-20% chance of rain!!!

    October 25, 2012

    4/4: Actual play will start when its good an dark. This may be as early as 7:15 or as late as 8 pm depending on how dark it is. Please feel free to email me any questions in case I forgot something. I am also going to post this email as comments on the event for those that sign up late too see.

    3/4: LOCATION DIRECTIONS: Use your gps or mapquest to get you to the fields. PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: The road the fields are located on are behind a residential area. It will be dusk or dark when you arrive so you may wonder if you have hit a DEAD END! You literally have to drive to the end of the road to realize it curves to the left. It is a very sharp curve and unless you drive all the way to it, you will think its a dead end. Do not think you are in the wrong place without driving to the end the of road and then you will see the curve to the left. I think there will be a wooden fence on your left if im not mistaken, and this makes the curve even harder to see from a distance. If you get lost call me at: [masked] Please only use my number if you are lost....you can text me if you are running a little late. I will be setting up and if 80+ peeps start calling me, then it will get hectic.

    2/4: ALCOHOL: They have a bar to purchase alcohol from at the Knights of Colombus Fields. You can drink during the event....even while on the field playing. However, no outside alcohol is allowed. They are kind enough to let us do this event at their facility for free so please follow their rules concerning this. The prices are very reasonable I might add. They do take debit cards as well as cash.

    FOOD: They will have food there to purchase such as burgers and dogs. Please plan to arrive early to hangout and drink and eat before the event.

    October 25, 2012

  • Clifton

    EMAIL I SENT COMMENTS: 1/4 Hey folks, tomorrow is the big day as long as the weather holds up. We will have a rain date setup just in case but even though the chance of rain is likely, they are stating it will be late in the evening and it seems whenver they predict a time it seems to always be later so im hoping it will hold off until after midnight. A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN WILL NOT STOP US FROM PLAYING!!

    COST: Remember this is a charity food drive. Please bring at least 2 cans of food. Also, please help me with the costs by bringing the $2 cash per person playing. I am giving you each 4 glow sticks for whatever team color you end up on. I am also giving you the connectors for the sticks to make them as bracelets for your wrists and the other two will attach onto your shoes around your laces. I also purchased two new sets of bases, 3 new balls, and 4 glow harnesses for the balls for this meetup.

  • Alex P.

    Will we just create the teams when we get there? Not sure if I'll know anybody ahead of time :)

    October 24, 2012

    • Clifton

      Hey Alex! We will hangout, eat, and drink starting at 630. I will also use that time to sign everyone in. We will separate the men and women and count off from 1-6 to make an even number of men and women on each team.

    • Jolene

      oh that's a great idea Clif, I was wondering how teams would be made and that seems most fair. Remembering how we did it in 5ft grade, hoping everyone remembers their numbers, lol.

      October 24, 2012

  • Clifton

    Hey folks....I just adjusted the rsvp for a few more slots! This is the last time though that I will be able to do that. If for some reason you or a guest cant make it, please update your rsvp accordingly. Please also dont make actual RSVPs for those coming just to drink and watch. They are more than welcome to come, just dont need to include them in the rsvp count as we need to save those slots for people that will actually be playing.

    October 23, 2012

    • Kenyetta H.

      Hey clifton some how my rsvp was changed and now I am on the waitlist. Can u please add me back. I had me and two others. It literally just changed 5 seconds ago

      October 23, 2012

    • Clifton

      Lol....I just saw that before seeing your comment here. I fixed it for you so no worries!! Anytime you add another guest it will do that if there isnt enough slots but I got your back because I had seen you RSVP a while back! See ya Friday!

      October 23, 2012

  • Clifton

    Sorry for all the comments but a quick note....if you have friends coming to just watch and drink, you dont have to rsvp them. Please save the rsvp spots for people actually playing in the kickball games. Thanks!! And sorry I didnt clarify that before.

    October 15, 2012

  • Clifton

    Oh....also, feel free to invite any friends that may just want to come out and watch or drink. After all, I want to bring the Knights of Colombus as much business as possible for allowing us to use their fields for free.

    October 15, 2012

  • Clifton

    Ok....so im actually adding even a few more spots! This is going to be a 6 team tournament by the way!

    October 15, 2012

  • Clifton

    I just opened up 8 more slots for this. That will be the max though.

    Will plan on being there after work. My 1st KB event, can't wait.

    October 3, 2012

  • Clifton

    Hey folks!! I got the location added. I have worked this out with the Knight's of Columbus in Raleigh to allow us to use their facility in Raleigh near Knightdale. They have a bar there we can use....and I have to be honest, the price of their beer is very very reasonable. $2 or $2.50 for most bottles. They will also be cooking hotdogs and hamburgers to raise money. Remember this is a charity event so please tell more people so that we can have a huge turnout!!! This will be a tournament. I will also be sending an email to the group with this new info. I have also cross posted this to another meetup group I help run so the turnout should be good.

    September 25, 2012

  • Clifton

    Lol...Paul if this particular venue comes thru then they have a bar for us there at the fields. If not.....well then, I guess that depends on if you are bringing the alcohol!!! :)

    September 21, 2012

  • paul r.
