IT'S NOT JUST A GAME

IT'S A CURIOSITY!

THERE IS NO CHARGE TO MEMBERS FOR

THIS MEETUP, HOWEVER WE ARE HAPPY

TO ACCEPT DONATIONS FOR THOSE WHO

WISH TO GIVE.


RSVP early in the week so that we have a good

idea of how many players we'll have coming.

Please do not RSVP and say you will attend

and then not show up without updating your

status on line.

This is a recreational non-contact ( no blocking) game intended for everyone to have fun.

You should try to avoid collisions with the opposing players at all costs.

We all have to return to work on Monday's in one piece.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON

TIME (ARRIVE ON THE FIELD BEFORE 11 AM).

Remember, be courteous to the other people who

are attending and cancel your RSVP if you can't

make it, please.


Feel free to message me (Rich Donahoe) if you have any questions or add a question to the board if you wish.

PARKING INFORMATION

Some members have told me that they had trouble parking in the Venice area and ended up paying money to park in lots. There is tons of free parking available in Venice east of Main street and south of Sunset Ave. Those streets are free to park all day and you just have to walk 2-3 blocks down to the beach.

Please arrive at 10:45 am to help set up the field with the cones.


Fig Tree's Cafe 429 Ocean Front Walk Venice, CA 90291

DON'T FORGET:

RSVP accurately.
Sand socks for sand & sunblock & water recommended
Be on time.
