Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Bball court

Alright folks, it is time to dust off the ol' sneakers and do something productive for once. An official LiB event was long overdue and I don't need to remind you of the havoc we've unleashed when numerous times a group of starving expats washed ashore the KFC in Mullhouse. This one is going to be different. We'll meet up for a friendly game of basketball and after our extensive battle for the orange object, we could all limp over to Caliente and take no prisoners...what do ya say, are you in or are you in?
RSVP'd Yes: 7 (5 members and 2 guests)
  • Kittster - I have not played for about 15 years and am totally unfit but you gotta start somewhere, right?
  • lost_inbroad
  • Aleydis + 1 guest - Hope we get enough folks for a game of 21 at least (rules tbd by LiB)
  • gikos
  • grumpygrapefruit + 1 guest - It might be 7.15 till I get there
RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (2 members and No guests)
  • roegner - What time and where approximately? Might join for drinks afterwards :-)
  • coconut - very tempted, still convincing OH... but where? what time?
RSVP'd No: 2
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

LiB, have a look at this one as well https://www.courtsoftheworld.com/Swi...sli-Sportplatz

The website lists many more, but I have no idea which courts are public.

EDIT: My OH just agreed to come and maybe play. He is 2m tall, so whoever talks him into it, gets him on his/her team

Goodness, what a turnout. I expected only 1 person to respond...some weirdo named Bob. But instead we could us a nice little group going. I'll try to find the exact address but there's a court near Langstrasse, where I've played before. However, if anybody has other court preferences, feel free to drop them down, I'm not picky where I get jiggy.
Also, if anybody needs a ride, I can pick you up in the mod wagon...just drop me a line.
I was thinking, that we could meet up around 7pm.
Langstrasse area 7 - 7.30 I could probably make it. I'll bring the beer.

Re: Hoop it up with LiB - An official LiB event.

Alright, I've located the court. It's not the one as mentioned before with the skatepark but rather the one by the school, immediately after Brauerstrasse 71.
Let's meet around 7pm. For those who haven't met me, I'll be the one wearing mint-green sneakers...can't miss them. Looking forward to meeting you all. Does anybody have a half-decent ball by any chance?

I have this one, now I just need to find the pump, hopefully we have not lost the needle. This unfortunately I will not be able to do before 3pm. Plan B required.

That works fine.
I got a pump and will bring it along.

Re: Hoop it up with LiB - An official LiB event.

OK I'm def in. It might be 7.15 before I can get there though. I haven't played in over 30 years and I have 2 dodgy elbows so don't expect too much from me, especially in this heat!

Re: Hoop it up with LiB - An official LiB event.

I have never been there. At rossligasse is busy and I saw basketballs lying around. The one I have is just okish. let's stick to rossligasse unless it is for everyone more convenient to come to bauerstrasse. Both fine with me. Anyone else preferring bauerstrasse?

Sounds great - in-fact perfect. Even worth the journey.
But couldn't possibly survive through all the cigars

Currently in negotiations with the weather gods as I make my way there. Am pushing for a slight temperature drop with an end of deluges by 19.05 CET. Let's see if they accept.

Re: Hoop it up with LiB - An official LiB event.

Thanks for organising Lib (and for those who couldn't find us.. yes, the school court was taken over for a school party for Caliente - we went to the small court on the other side of the school). Eight of us got together in the end.

Sorry I couldn't stay longer, but I enjoyed the fast and furious work out in the sauna like atmosphere. I'll have to see how the dodgy elbow is in the morning before committing to the next game though!

Thanks for setting this up LiB.

Between the Caliente crowds, and the fact that the highway is closed between the Airport and the far side of Bulach I only just got back now.
