KICK! is a fun, free playground-style kickball game that makes a great way for you to meet and mix with attendees of the Interactive festival. And even if you don't play, some snacks and goodies will be provided by our sponsor, Six Apart, the makers of Movable Type, TypePad and Vox. Here's what you need to know:
* When: Saturday, March 8 at 10:30am
* Where: Palm Park, behind the Austin Convention Center
* Who: Everyone's invited! It helps if you're a geek or a blogger
* What: Kickball. A simple game, tons of fun, and nobody gets picked last
* How: Just show up with some shoes you can run in, and we'll handle the rest
Six years ago, KICK! was started as a way to welcome the community of early bloggers that had just begun to adopt SXSWi as an informal annual homecoming. Though none of us were athletes, and very few of us had ever played kickball since we were children, that first game was a smashing success and quickly became an annual tradition.
After a brief hiatus, KICK! is back and bigger than ever. Whether you've ever been to SXSWi before, and whether you've been to KICK! before, you'll have a great time.
