Early Summer Tag!

The FUN! begins at 2:00 p.m. rain or shine. Shoes or no shoes. Wear your play clothes; mud stains are inevitable and are worn as a badge of honour. Expect to tease and be teased, run, jump and possibly slide! Laughter, sweat, grass stains and breathlessness are common side effects – though a well deserved euphoria kicks in eventually too. Hope to see you there!

1:45 Mix and mingle and set up the field
2:00 Let the games begin!
4:00 Wrap it up.

What you need:
Clothes you can get dirty in!
Shoes you can run in.
Layers (you will get hot, then cold)
Snacks (good enough for trading)
Water (juice if you're a fancy-pants) <--- We won't be able to bring any along.
A Twoonie to donate towards building the FUN.

Be aware that playing tag requires a whole lotta fast moves in every direction! The fun you're having can distract you from realizing the demand on your body. Be mindful of your limits; we do not have a first aid attendant at the park. Please come prepared with anything you may need to mend yourself.

Meet at CLARK PARK <--- click for map.

Clark Park is kinda laid out in tiers. The high end borders Commercial and 14th. The low end borders Maddams and 14th. We’ll meet at the lower end at 1:45pm.

If you’re walking up from the Broadway Station sky-train, there’s an entrance to the park on the corner of Commercial and 14th – just head downhill to find us. The park’s relatively small so if you get lost we reserve the right to tease you ;)

Oh, and, there’s no potty in the park. It may be good to show up on empty. Just saying…

This group is intended for adults (19+). We have no age cap; elders are welcome. If you would like to bring someone under 19 to the games, please email Chris or Michelle.

    I like the skipping idea, nothing looks more badass than skipping! I wonder, have you guys ever held a water fight? That would be nice and refreshing during the summer!

    I have a question or a suggestion for the organizers: How about a new tag game where you skip instead of run? Doesn't that sound kinda crazy and fun?!

    • Michelle

      Work on how the rules would work and introduce it next time - we're open to trying new things!

      How about Fox and Squirrel with skipping? That would be fun! No running, just skipping.

    What a lot of fun. Thanks everyone for a fabulous time (I even got a hug!), and for the good sport who sang the "I have to leave early" song for us (the curtsy was awesome!). Thanks for snacks too!

      Me Nemesis. I think you won that round Keith. Great day of tag! thanks!

      June 23, 2013

    • Keith G.

      Hey T! At least if tag ever gets boring (which it never will), at least we're out for each other's blood. Makes it a LOT more interesting...

    Does anyone want a pair of mens size 9 golf cleats? Free. I bought them from a thrift store to help with traction when muddy when playing tag, but I've since splurged and bought soccer cleats, since the golf cleats were actually too small anyhow.

    They will help with quick directional changes, especially if the grass is slippery or muddy. Consequently, I hope they find a home with someone who will play at least occasionally outside of the summer months.

    Let me know if you want them in the next few hours, and I'll bring them to tag today.

      I would love those. I am playing golf on Tuesday and have no golf shoes. If no one else said yeah, then I will for sure!

      June 23, 2013

  • Michelle

    It's supposed to be sunny on Sunday! See you there!
