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.

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.

 

DISCLAIMER: Flag football is a dangerous game that can result in serious injury or even death.  We do our best to minimize problems by enforcing no-contact rules, but if you come out and play you are agreeing to the Flag Football waiver at the bottom of this post.

    How does everyone like the Rapid Fire format? Should we go back to two games and a long halftime break?

      Reece, you should be dreaming about a Honeymoon and not worrying about what format we are using. For God's sake man. You have bigger fish to fry! (I still want to hear about Cannes) you bastard!

      No, don't bring Giants. They are to big for people to chew. Bring finger foods....or better yet, just bring fingers by themselves. I like them fried (or battered).

    Was thinking of bringing snacks...any suggestions?

      People seem to like chicken. Like a bucket O chicken or some chicken fingers. Second option would be any kind of wrap sandwiches. I'll bring some stuff too!
