B.A.R.S. Members!

Due to the overwhelming response to this meet-up group (and quite possibly a scheduling conflict with an extreme ironing competition in Canada) the inaugural B.A.R.S. event is moving weekends! to Saturday Novemeber 1st @ 4:00 in Golden Gate Park. (still finalizing the location but it will be in the east end of the park)

Originally what I thought would be a few interested people has skyrocketed into a very large group of what seems like a lot of great members! So, in the efforts to include all that want to attend this first event I didn't want to put a cap on the number of people and thus needed to rethink my event planning strategy.

so here's the way I see it...

Halloween is the night before and most of us, I'm assuming, will be "personae non resurrectio" on Saturday; so..... join us in the park for a little hair of the dog and a rousing multi-bracket tournament of ladder golf A.K.A. Blongo Ball or Donkey Ball (not to be confused with playing basketball while riding a donkey - which is real - look it up, it exists!) The game is fun and the rules are simple - all you need to do is bring yourself and have the ability to count to 3. (well, and then add to 21 - so bring a calculator)

....and, as stated in the bylaws of this club, if any of you are willing to continue a second day of punishment then by all means feel free to join me on an after event bar crawl through the NOPA neighborhood of S.F. - BTW I'm looking for suggestions of places to habituate so any thoughts or help would be appreciated!

For the highly informed, here is the obligatory nerd out rule site:

....or the corporate patented version:

This should be fun - the game will be tournament style with the hope that no one is ever "waiting around to play" plus there could be some super ironic trophy offered as well that has some catchy name like the "laddery" or the "golfie" or "grammy" Hope to see you all there Saturday November 1st @ 4:00!


If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Maybe" as well as "Yes".)

Best,
