Slacker Third of July

Jun 24th, 2013 | By | Category: Pick Up Games

Well, the People Have Spoken, and what they’ve declared is that Wednesday, July 3, will be officially designated a Slacker Party, thus:


All on my own I thought up a theme for the festivities: DEPENDENCE DAY. And you know what that means — bring the food, drink, recreational activities, people, pets, whatever, that you are dependent on or are dependent on you. The more the merrier, yeah?

Since the 3rd of July falls this year on the day before a long weekend, I figure it will roll out much like Slacksgiving does, with a horde of early arrivers at 12:30 or 1, followed by a steady stream of players who don’t normally get to slack because they have jobs (boo!) but will get let out of work early on the 3rd (yay!) Does that mean you? Probably it means you!

I know that some of you will be gone for the long weekend, to ultimate tournaments, weddings, camping trips, spiritual retreats, whatever. But there will be plenty of players and plenty of action to sustain the party — I’m guessing — till damn near nightfall.

And to sweeten the pot, I have arranged for a Blue Angels flyover (pending confirmation), a bountiful spread of food and drink (up to and including everything you bring), and, this year for the first time ever, an awesome display of Stealth Daytime Fireworks. This you won’t want to miss!

So mark your calendar and spread the word. SLACKER THIRD OF JULY is just around the corner, and it’s going to be the best slacker blow-out since the last one.

Keep ’em flying. -jv
