Sports

*bumped up due to a few updates*

There are a few things we need to plan... so please start the discussion.

1) Golf Tournament - Last year I put together a scramble tourney for the kickballers, which consisted of 20 people or so. We're going to do it again, hopefully with a tad more organization (even though last years went well without any major issues). We have a ton of events already planned this summer, so tentatively I'm looking at July 19th. However, since we live in America (fuck yeah!) you all have a say in it. While we can't accommodate everyone, we'll pick the best day we can. So for now, let's just focus on the day of the tournament. Discuss.

2) Soccer - A bunch of us drove all over town before finally ending up at UT. The game was pretty decent and well attended. Our next scheduled game is June 14th, which is the day after Missy's monster party (if you don't know about this you need to ask for the Evite). Is anyone still up for playing? I think some of us are camping in her backyard so we might be late if we do have a game. Sounds like half the group wants to play... the other half plans on being super hungover.

3) Volleyball - Looks like our next outing will be AT the Summer Sizzler. Get ready!

4) Paintball - We should do this. Gomez had an epic failure in his attempt to plan this last year. Anyone else on board? I know you all want to shoot each other. Anyone want to take the lead and plan this? Anyone? Other than Gomez? haha.

I'd definitely be down for the golf tournament and July 11 would work for me... I plan to make the next volleyball game too! What about poker night?

Chandler said...

yeah, forgot about poker night too. trying to see if anyone else wants to host this next one, due to my lack of space. we got plenty of chips and whatnot... just need some more room.

Mike S said...

Count me in for the golf tourney as well as the next volleyball match. Poker night seems like a good idea as well, I really could use some of more money.

Hello Kimmy said...

You can count me in for golf again. As for a date, I vote for July 12th, not 11th. The 11th is the day of the Aerosmith concert.

SarahB said...

I thought we were alternating v-ball every other sun with soccer? Or did that change again? Although this wknd alot of people will be in ginnie springs...including me so i wont be here :(
But count me in every other time we play!

Florian said...

We could always try and play soccer at a later time in the day for that one date. I say stay at the same field as it was good and we didn't seem to have any trouble.

As for volleyball, I would be up for playing this Sunday. We could do it at the courts by the soccer field. Know some people will be out of town this weekend but the good thing about volleyball is you really only need four people to play.

As for paintball, I'd be down if we could get a group together.

Chandler said...

Good call Kimmy. I did not know the date of Aerosmith. So the golf tourney is now penciled in for July 12th. If anyone else knows something going on that day which could hinder our outing, let me know.

As for vball this Sunday... I was planning on golfing but if enough people want to play I can just change sports.

Irish said...

Golf on the 12th is fine with me, altho it may hamper the Apre-golf with work the next day??

As for Soccer, I think where we played (or tried to play) at UT was the job, but we should always have a back up field just in case. I think Yella was telling me of another one drunken day!

Volleyball - Im out of town with work this weekend.

Paintball - definitely, I love to shoot shit!

Jared said...

1 - Golf - July 12th works great. Can't go on the 11th because of work and the ZZ Top - Aerosmith concert.
2 - Soccer - I think we can get a game together the day after Missy's party, we should just start it later in the afternoon - 1 maybe? That will give the people who were responsible enough not to drink and drive a chance to get home, eat something, change and get to the field.
3 - Volleyball - I haven't had a chance to play yet, but if we could get away with it at UT, they looked like noce courts, although it looks like from the pictures it became a drinking thing, and we can't pull that off there. I'll be at Ginnie Springs this weekend anyway.
4 - Paintball - fuck yeah, just let me know when (Sunday please, I work on Saturdays).
5 - Poker - I'd be willing to host it, but only on a Monday or a Saturday, otherwise I have to work the next day. I don't think people want to come to St. Pete anyway, so I'll try to make it wherever it gets set up.

Chandler said...

So while a lot of people have said July 12th works for golf... what about the 18th or 19th? Any issues there? We need to have a couple of options.

Ryan said...

Golf -
I'm down with the 12th, 18th and 19th.

Soccer -
The 14th is gonna be play it by ear I think. But now that we have everyone's contact info. Should be easier.

Volleyball-
I loved Ali's place.

Paintball-
I'm so down. Just as long as "Animal" Mike is on my team. I'd probably shoot myself, just to get it over with, if I saw that kid within.. say...250yds of me

Poker-
I have the room(enough for 2 tables) and the moxie to host. But I don't have the table or chips, I know someone does. I'll check with my roommate today and see what her schedule is like and I'll get back to you.

Irish said...

Ali's place was great but I know that she is out of town for the next two weekends and the next one is Fathers Day - dont know if that will work,but im down.

18th and 19th work for me too. Again on a Sunday the 19th hole would be not as good altho Jared would disagree :)! Im easy.


Poker - any evening at all

Jared said...

The 19th will work for me for Golf also (thanks Irish), and I can provide some chips and a table, if we want to do Poker at Bito's some night.

Chandler said...

Bull and I have a ton of poker chips as well

Michelle said...

Count me in for golf on any of those days! Just expect that i'll hit from the tee & then start picking up my ball as we go rather than hitting it a million times. That's assuming its a scramble like last year, well even if it isn't you may see me do that:)

Hello Kimmy said...

I'm okay with the 18th or 19th for golf too.

Don't worry about your game Michelle. I'm sure I'm rusty too. Who knows, maybe I'll hit the beer cart again this year. Ha ha. :)

Missy said...

We're def gonna be playing volleyball at the SSSizzle along with all the other popular lawn sports (thanks to Frank the game coordinator - he's got everything). Frank even suggested a mini-olympics. if anyone is interested, speak!
So, ya might just need to observe a day of rest on Sunday, 14th!!! Yes, we plan on tiring you out!

Another thought... if ya'll do need to get your Sunday sporting fix, we could possibly pull off a K-Ball game at my place. Or some more Volleyball. And if the Kegs weren't drained you can suck'em dry and cool off in the pool. My yard is pretty big but not big enough for an unobstructed soccer game.

Golf: Any those dates in July work for me! Yippee!

Chris said...

Olympics, yes.

FRANK said...

Im down for golf tourney. Day after Missy's party is my birthday, so I may be out for golf.
Def be down for poker/hearts/spades tourney as well. Ill kick all asses in volleyball. What about vball tourney at missys party?

I got a price for a dunk tank at Missys if anyone is interested in throwing in.. 200 dollars for the whole day. We could either put Ty or Flo, or maybe Knowlton in it. Also thought about getting a Sizzle Pinata for late night. Stuffed with condoms and liquor bottles, vibrators, handcuffs, etc.

FRANK said...

may be out for soccer i meant

GOMEZ said...

PAINTBALL!!!

Griff said...

V-ball tourny at Missy's sounds good...a little 2 v 2 or 4 v 4...

FRANK said...

I think we should just play it by ear, not have things too organized, like, omg, Im missing my 430 at the volleyball field, while eating dinner etc..

Geoff said...

sounds to me like frank is scared of competition... or commitment... or words that start with com... I guess he'll be missing our on combat combing for the completely competent coma compadres... his loss

Nate Dawg said...

Golf - I cant do the 12th cuz I will be in St Louis at the All-Star game festivities. I can do the 18th or 19th though.

Soccer - My Sundays are pretty much open, this Sunday or next is cool with me.

Volleyball - I agree with Bito, Ali's place is perfect.

Paintball - never been but would love to do it if we can get it scheduled this time.

Poker/Hearts/Spades - name the date, im down.

Chandler said...

golf is shaping up to be the 19th. more on this later.

Ryan said...

How crazy busy is our "Free Time" that we have to plan a golf outing 6/7 weeks in advance?

Chandler said...

Very crazy. It's always nice to have shit to do.

But I have a feeling we're gonna get a big turnout... so we'd have to plan it that far in advance anyway.

Geoff said...

So.... do we have any dates locked in for any of this?

Chandler said...

July 19th for golf as of now. Next week we'll do official sign-ups and I'll contact the course.

Irish said...

I still say we do soccer on the 14th....hungover?? So what will be dofferent?

Chandler said...

let's plan on 2pm for soccer then. it'll be hot as shit... but like Irish said... what's different? ok? we cool? you feelin' this?

YellowBird said...

I'm down for soccer on the 14th at 2pm

Leone said...

Weather permitting, I'll be out at the drop zone again this weekend so I can't do v-ball (or Ginnie Springs... Sorry Heather!!)

Soccer - I'm in.

Paintball - Um... yes please.

Golf is gay (just because I don't know how to play).

Leone said...

BTW I'm inviting two girls to play soccer with us.

They're both actual soccer players though...

Sorry guys, they're both married :(

Rollo said...

Ill play golf. Soccer i will still be in sunday class

MJ said...

I'm down for golf whenever. My wife is due on the 22nd! so I might be gametime...
Or Nate and I might plan a rival golf tourney the same day...

MJ said...

Rollo goes to Sunday school!

Nate Dawg said...
