Georgetown Kickball Team

That's right... a kickball team. We're looking for fleet-footed and fun-loving Hoyas to join the team - a great way to meet people, socialize, and get some, um, exercise. Although it will be a Georgetown alumni based team, everyone is welcome. We encourage you to ask co-workers, friends, and significant others to join the team too!

Details... We'll be doing this through The Golden Gate Sport and Social Club which organizes a variety of intramural sport leagues throughout the City. The season will begin Sunday, January 11th, 2009. Games take place on Sunday and will occur between noon and 3pm at Fort Scott Field in the Presidio.

Cost will vary depending on the number of people who join. 25 people on the team = $25 per person.

We will be taking sign ups and collecting team dues at the Bus Stop during the Georgetown-Memphis game watch. Otherwise, contact Robin Rector robin.n.rector@gmail.com or Chris Katsaros cmkatsaros@gmail.com if you're interested in playing or want more information!

When: Sat, November 7 - Family Hike: 9 AM; Young Alumni Hike: 11 AM

Description
Join your fellow Hoyas for a hike through one of the Bay Area's most beautiful natural treasures, Muir Woods. Muir Woods National Monument is home to some of the most beautiful old growth coastal redwood trees in all of the Bay Area.

We will be joined by the intrepid Russ Watts, the Director of Outdoor Education at Georgetown University. Russ, is an accomplished outdoorsman who paid his way through college at UC-Davis guiding rock climbing trips for Mountain Adventure Seminars in the Sierras. We are excited to have Russ out to lead our local Bay Area alumni in the wilderness.

There will be two hikes:
Family Hike - Starting at 9 AM all of those interested in a family oriented hike in the Cathedral forest we will all meet next to the entrance / gift shop of the park. The National Park service will have a ranger on hand to give an introduction to the forest. At the conclusion of the introduction Russ Watts will lead the group through the forest. Plan on bringing snacks but a special treat will be provided.

Young Alumni Hike - Starting at 11 AM all of those interested in a more rigorous 4 mile hike along the Dipsea / Bootjack trail we will all meet next to the entrance / gift shop of the park. The National Park service will have a ranger on hand to give an introduction to the park. At the conclusion of the introduction Russ Watts will lead the group out onto the trail and up along the coastal ridge for some great views. Plan on bringing a bagged lunch but a special treat will be provided. For those up for it, a visit to the Tourist Club, a German style hostel and beer hall located within the park will conclude the hike.
