X Marks the Spot

Posted by Ren McCormack on May 1, 2006

The fields are the same as last year, and are located near the Viet Nam Memorial.  The nearest intersection is 21st and Constitution. The X, our sponsor bar, is located at 17th/G Streets, a few blocks from the fields and Farragut Square (and the Metro).

The Exchange

The nearest Metro to the fields is Foggy Bottom (Blue line), and is a 10-15 minute walk. Parking along Constitution Ave opens up at 6:30.  Please take Metro and parking time into consideration.  Remember, games start at 6:30 and 7:15.

Because permits are not issued for the fields, we fight for the space with softball and anyone else who wants to use the space.  Therefore, we are required to “squat” the fields. What’s that mean? At least one person needs to get to the fields early to save the space. Coming from Alexandria, I can’t do it.  It should ideally rotate duties when we have the early (6:30) game.

Squatting is no big deal–you just arrive early, chat with other kickballers, have a drinkee-poo, set up the equipment (if it’s there), and sometimes tell softballers “uh, sorry, kickball has this space.”  If the person taking the equipment can also squat, that would be ever so nice.

Only 9 days and counting until the start of the 2006 season!

  1. Hey Ben,

    Since we have this wonderful resource on which to post information, can we get the schedule. You can make it a blog entry, a sidebar… whatever strokes your goat.
