Capture The Flag! At the Capitol!

Let's get out and play CTF before the heat! We'll meet at the south-facing steps of the State Capitol in the early evening before breaking off into teams and running, sneaking, hiding and chasing each other in the low light! Bring your friends, some water and a playful attitude. All skill and fitness levels welcome! Suggested donation, $1 per person to cover cost of materials for the event.

If you aren't familiar with capture the flag, basically, there are two teams who each have a territory separated by a line or neutral ground, each team hides their flag on their side and must simultaneously defend their flag while trying to find the other team's flag and bring it to their side. When players enter the opposing team's side they must avoid being tagged and taken to "jail". Teams can rescue their players from jail by getting to their teammates and tagging them, thereby releasing them. The game ends when one team finds the other's flag, picks it up and runs back to their side without being tagged. More details to come...

    A little note about parking, the meters surrounding the capitol may or may not be free at the time of the meetup. I've had good luck finding parking on 10th st between congress and red river and i believe those meters will be free after 8 tonight.

    I encourage everyone attending to try and bring a friend or two, a ctf arena this size really necessitates a minimum 16 people.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
