November Tag - Last one for 2013!

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.

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.

DIRECTIONS:

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.

Here's a picture, courtesy of Google : 

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 ;)

    • Jamie

      Thanks Michelle! Yes I will definitely be around for the January edition! This is the game I was trying to piece together from my memories of playing it as a 10 year old. It's called dragon tag: http://www.group-game...­

      I remember the clever team would curl up like a snake so that the tail was in the middle and the other teams couldn't get to it :)

    I'm a 'maybe', but there's no option for that in RSVPs.

    November 19, 2013

    • Lisa

      Hope to see you. It's great fun!

      I'd just RSVP " yes" then write a comment like you did now.

    Can one come to watch only ?

    November 9, 2013

    • Chris

      Of course you *can* (and we do appreciate photographers who then post photos here). I'd encourage you to join in at least some of the games, though.

  • RYANGJU P.

    Hi.I would like to attend at the tag game.
    However I can read English but I can't speak it yet.
    So, I am worring about if i do not understand the rules during the game.
    Is Tag hard? Can I learn it easily ?

    November 8, 2013

    • Chris

      Depending on what you do speak, there may be somebody who can translate, too.

      November 10, 2013

    • Chris

      Oh, and if you go to "More->Files"­ at the top there, you can read the rules for many of the games we play. The problem is that I can't tell you which ones we'll play on the day - except that we will play "Fox and Squirrel" at the start.

      1 · November 10, 2013

  • Lisa

    Sabastin, Ryangju, and Jamie, this group is a lot of fun!!! Don't worry about catching on, if you can run, you can play. No watching from the sidelines either. Learning is easiest if you just get in the game. Ill help you with the games Ryangju. I went my first time last month, and had a great time!!! Hope to see you all. :D

    2 · November 10, 2013

  • RYANGJU P.

    Challenge!!!

    November 9, 2013

  • Jamie

    I can't begin to say how absolutely excited I am to be part of this group. I just moved here for a 3 month work contract and I think this group will be the highlight of this entire Vancouver experience!
