Asian-American Olympics

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Let's do a series of outdoorsy games where the different Asian groups come together. Kickball, dodgeball, flag football, tug-of-war, etc. It would be so fun and would be good for guys and gals. When the weather gets nice in Spring would be best- yeah that's a while from now. I would captain the Vietnamese team, Rudy would captain the Filipino team, Michael the Cantonese team, etc. What do you all think? Would you be down? It would be legendary....

    We did do this last year. Here's the photo album:

    Games, bbq, good times. I was a terrible player and got dirty from tug of war but it was nice :-)
    We may do this again this summer.

    Great idea but public parks will require reservations and permits/license for organizations and activities esp with 80+ pp. Or they will shut you down. Fort Hunt Park off GW Parkway was a good venue point from DC,VA,MD where we did a charity volleyball tournament and picnic one year.

    are we ever going to do this?...hopefully before it gets too hot...

      Sure. I've re-torqued this idea in my head over time too. Beyond outdoor games, we could do minute to win it games indoors. That way we don't have to pay to reserve a park area. It does take some coordination with all the different group organizers to do something big like this. Give me some time. I actually live in Baltimore but plan on moving to the DC area this summer.

    This would be great after all the snow! I'm not very athletic but I was on the varsity cheerleading squad for 3 years a long time ago. Maybe I'll come to cheer on the best looking team! Hope plans will be posted soon...btw, Sunday afternoon would be best.

      This one will have to be during good weather for outdoors. Indoors it could just be minute to win it games. It's going to take quite a bit of planning and coordination to pull this one off. So I've waited for this Meetup to grow and my contacts to expand before actually attempting this.

    What's up with this Jeremy Lin guy? Out of nowhere we have an American born Asian tearing it up in the NBA. It's awesome but has led to some uncomfortable incidents. For example the 2 tasteless ESPN comments & Floyd Mayweather running his mouth. Can't see why people can't just be respectful & happy for Lin breaking the mold & doing well.

    Well, you all can feel it in the air. Weather is getting better. We'll start hiking & flag football again. Any ideas for other outdoorsy things let us know.
