Hello Kickball Kids,
This season, we will be playing at Bryn Mawr Park and partying at The Moose on Monroe in northeast. Here are some key details for our first game this Thursday!
This week’s Theme: PURPLE RAIN. You can view details and all the themes on this season’s Social Calendar, available here: Social Calendar. New Teams – themes are important. Each team dresses up according to the theme each week and most often, there are special “Best Dressed” prizes handed out at the bar.
Shirts Update: Our shirts have been ordered (and fingers crossed they’ll arrive before Thursday), but we expect you to wear purple this week anyways!
Schedule/Scores: Following games each week, every captain and home plate ref is responsible for texting both team's scores to our GMOT inbox (612-467-9252). You can also email them, and a game write-up and photos, to the same inbox at editorGMOT@gmail.com . Schedule available here: Kickball Schedule.... Remember to also text your flip cup scores!
Note to team captains: find Jackie when you arrive at the field for a new scorebook for this season. If shirts are in, you can also pick up your team shirts!
Alcohol Policy: Remember everyone, Minneapolis Parks has a strict no-alcohol in the park policy and have their own Police department to patrol this. No visible cans, coolers, etc. Keep it classy kickballers! And consider yourself warned.
Volunteers Needed: If you’ve played past seasons, you know how much fun our charity nights and mid-season/end-of-season parties can be during the season. We are looking for a new Thursday Night Charity Chair to help support these events. All funds raised this season will go to the American Heart Association. Are you interested in helping out? If so, let us know!
Sponsor Bar Reminder: Join us every Thursday night at The Moose in northeast Mpls for team flip cup. Last week Kick This had the largest showing of players following the Captains Meeting – but we were happy to see a few rookie teams join us as well. Check out team photos on the GMOT blog: http://twincitieskickball.blogspot.com/.
We hope to see everyone this week for the following kickball specials:
• $5 Burger Baskets
• $5 Pasta and Salad Buffet
• $8 Light Beer Pitcher Special
• $3 Tap Beer Pints
• $3 Rail Drinks
• $5 WAKA Shot Special
The basement will be reserved for kickball, but we will also have flip cup tables reserved upstairs for our weekly games before Karaoke begins around 9 PM. It should be a fun spring! I look forward to seeing you for week one on May 19.
See you Thursday!
Jackie & Joline
