I have just two words for you, Blue Team!
Should we have national "RvB" anthems for the winners?

That would be awesome! I wrote a "Battle Hymn of the Red Team" last year. If I can find it, I'll post it!

Because I've been getting some questions about the specifics of each event, I've added some "fast facts" to the top of each thread. Let me know if there are any more questions!

Yes, did you find the "Battle Hymn of the Red Team"?

The fact that you have a martini sitting on top of racked balls in your profile picture has me worried.
To the Billiard Room!

Technically there are no teams yet... You'll be picking those when you buy your ticket!

Edit: That sounded rude. I didn't mean to imply you can't start planning those things yet!

Sooo, what you're saying is now is the time to start recruiting people, and the free agents (Freelancers) can jump ship to equal things out?
I don't know about anyone else but I'm sticking with Blue Team. Once a Blue, always a Blue!

EDIT: Don't worry about it, I didn't take you for being rude.

You can totally recruit and all that jazz. All I ask is that we *TRY* to keep it even. Otherwise I'll have to balance the teams by force... and you really don't want that

Well, it wouldn't be fair if the teams weren't somewhat even. Didn't that happen to the Freelancers last year? During the game some of them left the team to join the Reds?

Looks like a good time, I'm in. Any team works for me. I've got a shirt or two from at least each team, so I'm set for whichever side.

Tell me there will be beer pong and flip cup involved in the Barlympics. I have never been to a bar golf or beer olympics that did not involve one or both of those games and would be a sad panda if ours didn't.

We may be able to expand the capacity and sell some more tickets, but I can't make any promises right now.

If the capacity can't be increased can other people still come to hang out without participating in event activities since no tickets? i imagine that shouldn't be bad for at least the bar crawl portion as long as im paying for myself and not interfering with event right?
