This community is for the Geek Girls Sports Club in Austin, TX. It is a central place where we can throw out ideas, plan meetups and vote on what sports to do for the weeks...
For any new visitors, Geek Girls Sports is basically a group of girls who met when one of us (thanks Jess!) posted an ad on austincommunity and craigslist looking for other girls who were interested in getting together to play sports on the weekends. Each member picks a month, and for that month, they're responsible for choosing a sport, gathering equipment, securing a location, and designating a restaurant for dinner and drinks afterwards.
Sounds great...how do I become a member? We're always looking for more members, but to retain our sanity, we're only accepting members to the community who show up to an event. Once you come to an event, we'll add you as a member and add you to our email list. Membership means you have the ability to post, and the option of selecting a month to be responsible for. If you don't think you have time to plan an event, come to some of our games anyway! We're a fun bunch of girls and we're trying to promote great relationships among women through the medium of sports! We always welcome unusual sporting ideas (Kyudo Zen Archery, anyone?) and would love to have you as a member!
This community was begun in January of 2005 by Jess.
Questions? We're democratic around here and every member is a mod. Pick a gal and ask a question!
Why, yes! We *do* have a group flickr page...come visit us!
What's that? You want to know if we're on Tribe.net, too? Sho' 'nuff...(pardon the construction dust over here
Love our snazzy Geek Girls tee shirts, bumper stickers and other stuff? Buy your own at The Geek Girls Store! Girls who stick around for a few events can pick an official GG number and velokitty will make you a custom store--including custom shirts with your name on them and a choice of logos!
