Tag! You're it! goes NATIONAL!

A giant smiling salute to all my partners in fun!

Tag! You?re it! Vancouver has now rustled up over 200 members who love running around like fools - laughing, screaming, jumping, dodging and chasing one another just because it's fun! And more and more are joining every week.

I?ve had two organizers in different cities show an interest in hosting tag games for their activity group. I love it! But it?s going to take some work to expand what we?re doing across the country. Any helpers out there?

My plan: The first step is to write out the rules to each of the games we?ve been playing - this needs to include any changes we?ve made and an overview of how to achieve the best results ie: the size of the playing field, number of players etc.

I?m also thinking it would be cool to illustrate the games ? through photos, drawings or CGI ? maybe even a series of Youtube videos? Any creative folk out there who have time to take on a micro-project?

Eventually what we?ll have is a PDF file that can be sent out to organizers across Canada. We need volunteers to find and make contact with activity/outdoor groups with a penchant for FUN! My hope is that groups from every province will get on board.

If we get a good response ? I?d LOVE to plan a nationwide event. We would choose a date and invite all the participating groups to play in their city on the same day. Imagine a day when thousands of Meet-up members are playing tag across Canada!

As excited as I am about the idea, I can?t do this alone. Please send me an email if you?re interested in making this happen. I don?t imagine this being a huge time commitment ? it?s more about organizing the details. And I promise to keep it FUN :)

Any comments or suggestions? Tag me back!

Anah

Ps: Tag! You?re it! Halifax is already on board (Yay!) They're first in line for the package.
