Capture the Flag: The final Countdown

* Registration closed *
On Friday the 16th September UQPSA is hosting another capture the flag game on the battlefield of glory (the engineering district)! Get psyched.
After the game (if open) we will be rehydrating ourselves at the Red Room while we bask in our battle glories.
DATE: Friday 16th September
FITNESS LEVEL/ EXPERIENCE: Any level
DRESS: Joggers and dark clothing, (headbands will be handed out at the start of the game)
Note: If it is raining this event will be reschedule.
Meeting at the Pizza Café at 6:59pm so everyone gets a chance to mingle and make some friends and boast about their predicted glory.
We will then head on over to the STARTING POINT at the northern end of Cooper Road where it meets the pedestrian-only stretch of Mansfield Place (near the Priestley Building). Briefing of rules and team formation will take place here at 7:30pm. THE FIRST GAME WILL BEGIN AT 7:45pm SHARP!
Two teams, each with their own territory divided by a narrow no-man's land (in this case it will be Cooper Road).
You can be tagged when you're in the opposition's territory (contact with any part of the body/clothing counts as tagging) OR when you're holding the other team's flag and you're in no-man's land/your own territory.
The tagger can choose to send you back to your own territory (you have to walk slowly back across no-man's land with your hands held high in the air) or escort you to their team jail.
Objective is to find the opposing team's flag and take it back to your own flag without getting tagged.
No going into buildings, security will shut the game down otherwise.
If it's just a bit drizzly we'll probably still play.
Feel free to invite friends, partners, and family - the PSA welcomes all! This is a fun, casual game so it doesn't matter if you've never played before or you don't think you'll be any good at it - come along anyway.
