Short Notice September 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.

      Certainly makes you look at the kids running round in the playground a little differently, doesn't it ?

    The first half hour or so was a little damp, but then it dried up and we even saw a glimpse of the sun. The field was nice a slippery, but didn't get muddy. We had some awesome slides and wipe-outs. Only six of us, but we had a blast - the rest if you really missed out!
    We played - fox & squirrel, what's the time Mr wolf, freeze tag, balloon tag, and let's call it "injury tag".
    Special thanks to Keith for bringing toys *and* snacks.

      How excellent - glad it was fun and hopefully "injury tag" just needed some well placed ice packs! I'm pouting that I missed out because of this dastardly cold!

    Looks like it's going to be wet and muddy. Rest assured that the rain helps keep you cool and the mud just slows everything down a bit. Tag is the most fun you can have on a rainy Vancouver Sunday!

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.
