Kickball - Grown adults playing a kids' game!

Were you awesome at kickball in 4th grade? Or maybe as recently as last year? Well, now's your chance to show that you've still got skillz & impress your meetup friends with your athletic prowess (or your bravery!).

Come on out for a fun time, play or watch some kickball, and maybe have a few beverages (depending on what's allowed where we have it).

Location has been finalized as the West Milwaukee Park ball fields 3 & 4.

With more than 50 RSVPs (as of 5/23), we can plan on having 2 games going on simultaneously, if desired.

    Really appreciate Dustin hosting this event. Wish more people had kept to their RSVPs. For those who said they would come and no-show'd, please note that this counts towards the 3-strikes rule.

    As for the funny side of it all, here are the pictures we took of Sad Dustin. :)

    Hi guys! This was my first main event that I rsvp'd to attend. Thanka to the new court ruling, I got married this weekend and made the Sunday paper. Needless to say, all my plans got flipped upside down and I was unable to attend yeaterday. Hopefully next time I will be able to join in on the fun! Does this grant me one get out of jail free card?

    Sorry I could not make it, I'm training for a marathon and my body feels like a pile of bricks this afternoon. I was hoping to stop by at least.

  • Nikki

    So sorry I couldn't make it. My car decided not to start today. I love kickball. The group should do this again.

    Man, I'm super bummed to have to pass on kickball. I'm limping around here which I thought was going to be better by today. We definitely should do this again.

    Gotta get this homework done, catch you all next time.

    I was really looking forward to my first meet up with this group but my babysitter bailed on me. Hopefully there will be another one of these. Maybe next time.

    I am super sad to miss this... But i need to work... I agree with sara though... This should be a regular thing

    June 8

  • Sara

    Sorry, I'm not going to make it...hopefully this will be a regular thing throughout summer.

    The permit has been approved and paid for, including the permit to allow alcohol consumption. There is NO sales of alcohol allowed, but we can bring and drink what we want (as long as it's legal). I will bring and post the permit on Sunday, but anyone who would like to check it out before then can access it here:

    For those interested, we will also have some softballs too. I'm planning to have some softballs that are soft enough to not need gloves, but there will also be "regular" softballs.

    See you all Sunday!

    • Tony D

      It is b.y.o.b. correct? Or, something to share? Do we need big coolers filled with ice?

      June 4

  • Kyle K.

    I'm doing the beer run that starts at 11:00 so I might be running a little late for volleyball. Hoping to get there around 2ish

    June 2

    • Jason

      It's kickball! :) Might be kickball / softball. Maybe dodgeball if we get really aggressive and macho. Maybe volleyball if I bring my net. And fix the pole we broke last time we did volleyball...

      3 · June 2

    • Kyle K.

      lol something with a ball at least

      1 · June 2

  • Dustin

    Well, we've had a location change. I was able to reserve fields 3 & 4 (the east ones) at West Milwaukee Park. The price for field rental is still $10/hr per field. The great part is that this is a county park, so we can now have alcohol! Of course, that now means we need to buy a liquor license, which is $85, so I will ask for a donation from anyone who is willing to contribute. Any contributions above the cost of the meetup will be added to the funds available for the group overall.

    • Collette

      I put up a notice - if you and Jason need someone to help check in and collect for the field costs - let us know! :)

      2 · May 25

  • Jason

    I am going to kick so many balls.

    Wait...

    6 · May 23

    • Collette

      And this is why I love you! :)

  • Collette

    **Please Make Sure to Help Pay for the Cost of the Event - When You Check In - Give Dustin & Jason a Handshake and $4.00** They have to pay for the field and the liquor license.

    May 25

  • Jason

    Sounds like a hell of a time!

    May 22

  • Dustin

    There is a fee associated with the use of the field, and since we'll be using the bases ($8/hr), we will need a field attendant as well ($10/hr), but I'm prepared to cover the cost. Anyone who feels like throwing in a few dollars would be appreciated, but I didn't want to add a fee to this meetup.

    Also, there is a strict NO ALCOHOL policy for this, as the park is a part of the Milwaukee Public Schools Recreation Division. We can always find a nearby place for drinks and possibly dinner afterward. Suggestions are welcome, as I don't know that area of Milwaukee.

      Sounds good

      April 10

    • Jason

      I'll throw done some for it. Should be fun!

      May 22

  • Maurina

    Plan for this again? I can't make it on the 8th. bummer.

    May 6

  • Dustin

    Wow, this has been a lot more popular than I thought! With 50+ people RSVPing, I'm fairly sure we won't all be playing, but be aware they only have 1 field, so we'll most likely have to take turns playing. I expect we'll have people arriving at different times too, so that'll help give everyone a chance to play.

  • Diyonna M.

    Lol you actually did it! Cant wait!

    1 · April 5

  • Dustin

    I've also updated the time to 1 PM, and we can plan on having the field from 1-4, as there is a softball game at 5, & the teams start showing up about 4:30. We will have an attendant there so the bathrooms will be open, and will have bases out as well.

    2 · April 4

  • Dustin

    I've got the field reserved at Beulah Brinton park from 1-4 on June 8th.

    2 · April 4

  • Sharon

    oh hellllll yea!!!!

    April 3

  • Ashley

    Beulah Brinton Park in Bayview could be good for this. It is often empty, not sure if you would need approval.
