Friday Night Funk Draw
at Elks Island Beach Courts
The special birthdays FNF = we get it out of our systems,
this one for players with NOVEMBER birthdays!
*Anyone can join - you do not have to have a birthday.
Players not plucked to be on a specific team will be assembled for a "regular" team.
Birthday boys & girls get these keen perks:
- Hand pick your teammates from the roster
(of course you need to have any specific friends you want to also sign up).
**DISCLAIMER: we are limited to 8 Birthday team "captains" for our 8 total teams - It's first 8 to come in, first 8 to get those coveted spots.
It also obviously follows for your birthday teammates (meaning, we cannot boot free agent organic players from the roster for "birthday friends" once the roster is full at 32 players, because that'd just be some shady d-baggery on our part, right?
So giddy-up if this is important to you.
- A gift of a Funk beer mug or wine glass and to have it filled once with your beverage of choice at the bar, compliments of Shawn & Desi.
- A personalized Funk shirt made with love by Desi as our birthday gift.
- You can request up to 3 personal favorite songs for the night's playlist.
- There could be cupcakes, or cookies. Or A cupcake. Or ice cream sandwiches. Or some brown bananas.
Some kind of treat.
Just bring your bad self, we take care of the rest
6:15 check in / 6:45 pm first game
finals wrap up around 12:30 am
