Basketball in the Sun!

  • Outdoors basketball is back!  While we have several regulars outside of meetup, we're opening it up since we've found a great new park that is almost always empty.  Ideally, we'd like to get enough players to get two games of 3x3 on going with one team waiting in the wing.  It's regulation height and size, always empty and seems practically brand-new.  It even has three-point lines,

    For those of you who haven't been to one of these, they're a blast. It's amazing exercise, not overly competitive and just a very friendly atmosphere with more jokes than smack talk. You don't need to be tall or male to play. The only thing you need is at least some basic skills, a good attitude and water.  If you plan to get overly physical or competitive/mad, this might not be the event for you.

    If you need to get a hold of me, for example if you change your plans at the last minute, you can call me at[masked]-1090.  If weather is an issue, I will post here and cancel the meetup.

    Also, there will be at least six people from outside of meetup who will be there, so we always have a good number.  I'll try to remember to update my RSVP to include them, but if I don't, just assume that we have 6+ and don't be afraid to RSVP.

    Here's a link to a map.

    Hope to see you guys there!

    Weather changed drastically and is no raining at a good clip. I don't want to risk people slipping and getting injured, so let's cancel. I'll see about rescheduling for perhaps Sunday.

    Wheeler Park was our original plan for this year, but they tore it up right before we were going to switch there from burns park. I had heard it was because a water main broke. Glad to hear they're re-doing it. That said, one thing we like about this court is that it's off the beaten path, so no one will be there and we can get more of our folks playing. In fact, I wasn't posting this as a meetup for a while b/c we often had too many with the people who were already playing at Burns Park (who are often very competitive and not as fun to play with.)

    It's also got a dog park right next to it, so I might bring Jacob next time...

    FYI the Wheeler Park basketball courts are being completely redone just north of downtown. It is a pretty popular place to play when the court is available!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
