Is this happening? One of my friends who is coming is more excited about the prospect of this than anything else...
cos if so, I think it's what I'm looking forward to most as well..
I'm coming with like a million people, I'msure we could get at least a team out!
cricket i can do though.
I'm sure it will. Lots of people who post on here are going.
Sign up below! I'm in.
on the atp twitter?
If so we're in
The last time I played football with these particular people I kicked the goalpost and broke two toes.
can I play?
about mid-day on the day Los Campesinos were playing, and we joked to Gareth (who was playing in the game) that he was gonna break his leg or something before they played. He didn't injure himself in the game, but did completely bust his ankle while playing the show, and had to limp around with a glum look for the rest of the weekend!
Never played at Butlins - the pitches look slightly swankier than the one at Camber which isn't properly rectangular and has a tennis net in the middle. Lets do it!
depending on time of day/hangover crossover.
I'm also bringing the cricket set and my darts.
can i play?
You're a darts sensation.
will you be watching the cup final with me too?
where we all start out at the entrance, get given some stickers saying "I FOUND STEPHEN MALKMUS" and the quest is to find Stephen Malkmus. Winner is the first person to find Stephen Malkmus, and pose for a photo with him wearing, or at least holding the sticker.
winner is the first person to find him and persuade him to come and play football and darts with us.
maybe some cricket, too.
Don't know how crazy I'd feel about proper five-a-side with a hangover.
I'd like to play against hungover fogies so I can pretend i'm actually brilliant.
where do i sign up
Where *do* we sign up?
BUT i would like to volunteer my goalkeeping services
* Was in school team
* Can save 95% of penalties
* Can sometimes do Rene Higuita scorpion kick, possibly affecting team's chances of victory (for the worse)
I´ll play. I tried to play at the Explosions in the Sky ATP but couldn´t find people to play with me. Looking forward to it.
please! how're you organising it?
ie. do you need to book a pitch or just rock up?
where are there actually pitches at minehead?
also i havent played a proper game of football in over a year and i was never excellent anyway.
Sunday morning? Saturday first thing before the carnage begins proper?
but I don't think I'll be seeing much of Saturday and Sunday mornings! I reckon this would apply to most people too. Probably Sunday about 1:30pm would be my choice, and I guess would get the most people, though this would clash with the quiz, which is always fun.
Dry at the moment at least hitting about 12-14° at midday.
Who's taking boots? Who's just playing in Converse?
Shall we arrange a time to meet and just see who turns up... Maybe pre-Cup Final?
what's the standard like for disers?
